AT WAR WITH ASIA by Noam Chomsky

AT WAR WITH ASIA by Noam Chomsky (hier online bestellen)

The story:
Drawing in part on his visits to Asia and in part on his extensive reading in the field, Chomsky discusses the historical, political and economic reasons behind our involvement in a Southeast Asian land war. Chomsky examines the impact of our involvement on United States military strategy and what its eventual effect will be in America and abroad. While the people of the world are clearly the victims of US foreign policy, the citizens of the United States have not been able to escape harm. In an eerie prediction of current events, Chomsky states: "it is unlikely that we can continue indefinitely on this mad course without severe domestic depression and regimentation. For those who hope to rule the world, to win what some scholars like to call 'the game of world domination' American policies in Southeast Asia may appear rational. To the citizens of the empire, at home and abroad, they bring only pain and sorrow. In this respect we are reliving the history of earlier imperial systems. We have had many opportunities to escape this trap and still do today. Failure to take advantages of these opportunities, continued submission to indoctrination, and indifference to the fate of others, will surely spell disaster for much of the human race." At War With Asia is an indispensable guide to understanding not only the past, but the current logic of imperial force.
