Redressing the balance,
By A Customer
This review is from: Killing Hope: U.S. Military and CIA Interventions Since World War II (Hardcover)
This book is by no means a thorough investigation of world affairs nor an exercise in balanced reporting, the USA vs. 'Communism'.
It is however what it says it is, a detailed review of tactics used by the USA which have been forgotten or ommitted from general western history, which itself is slanted against other 'powers' or ideologies in order to create the idea that the allies are always 'the good guys' and can do no wrong.
This even in the face of copiuos evidence that the 'good guys' were in fact agent provocateurs and subversive, working with the aim of futhering Multi-national business and the commercial economy of the USA, Britain and its allies.
Good will, righteousness and press coverage can be shown as having served to engender this in our collective westernised society.
Hence any terrorism has to be based on Greed and Envy, instead of any nefarious actions on our behalf.
The wolrds view on Communism is both well documented and biassed. This book serves to redress the balance
