So all I am going to say is check out Noam Chomsky at the book store He has written several books on the subjec of terrorism and is an excellent writer. You will get everything you ever needed to know about the US and Terrorism.
You blew it; it's political now. I'm sure he's a good writer, but Chomsky is a complete wacko; an overeducated nonrealist. A skill in writing doesn't make you right
The problem with any book on a political subject is they are selling you on an idea or pressing their opinion on you. You have to read multiple authors from different view points in order to form your own opinion. This takes more work and most people are content regurgetating other people's ideas to create an artificial intelligence of the topic.
I agree w/ you 100% on that being an issue w/ most political books
however, in Chomsky's writings for the most part he isn't writing anything really new, he is using what the US Govt. publicly says vs. what they actually do. He makes a very compelling case that using its own definition of terrorism, the US Gov is the leading sponsor of terrorism in the World.
anyone that would like to send me a pm to discuss it further is more than welcome, but until they reinstate the Political forum, I will keep it off the board
