Praise

“What exactly constitutes a ‘rogue’ state? If you are a regular consumer of mainstream media, you are probably familiar with the usual suspects the U.S. regularly trots out: Libya, North Korea, Iraq, Iran and Cuba. It looks like they can cross North Korea off the list, now that their nuclear missile ‘program’ turns out to be an empty tunnel. As the authors of this wonderful concise pamphlet point out, if the concept of ‘rogue state’ is to be of any use, we have to examine how such concepts further American racist policies around the world, and how hypocritical the U.S. is in pointing fingers everywhere but at itself. Edward Said looks at American attitudes toward the Arab world and the tendency for the U.S. to puritanically punish any state or group that dares to interfere with U.S. interests. Noam Chomsky weighs in with an analysis on how the U.S. constructs the notion of ‘rogue states’ and at the same time deflects attention from it’s own wrongdoing. Special attention is paid to U.S. agression against Iraq. Ramsey Clark examines how the U.S. continues to violate the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. A great pocket guide to foreign policy.” Alternative Press Review
