the United States is its own worse enemy. It tries to literally force
its idea of government on other peoples and then wonders why
they resist and fight back with the only means they can.

What has the U.S. Done to the World
that Creates American-Hating Terrorists?

The American Empire:
To the American mind, these words sound like an oxymoron.

Suggesting to Americans that their country has a compelling lust for political, economic and military hegemony over the rest of the world, divorced from any moral considerations, is akin to telling them of one's UFO abduction - except that they're more likely to believe the abduction story.

William Blum has compiled evidence that will make believers of such skeptics. In Rogue State, he shows that "close encounters" between the United States and alien nations have demonstrably been of the cruelest kind.

This is not a book for anyone who wishes to maintain any cosy illusions about their own liberty... we find in these pages, meticulously detailed and annotated, all the instances of assassination, covert and overt destabilisation, election-rigging, sponsorship of terrorism, secret surveillance, brainwashing and provocation that the US has employed to further its burgeoning corporate empire... After reading Rogue State, it is impossible to hang fast to the comforting illusion that the 'American Way' is some kind of enlightenment.

From incarcerating Nelson Mandela to dropping cluster bombs (which later turn to landmines) on Yugoslavia, from supporting Pol Pot to praising Noriega, the U.S. has been barbaric enough to do it. William Blum shows us how, even though Clinton calls America the worlds greatest force for peace, our Rogue State really needs to be leashed.
