By Robert Fantina

In its complete heritage, there was little or no time while the U.S. has been at peace. because it wages its many wars and ‘interventions’, the acknowledged objective is usually whatever few humans may well argue with: fostering democracy while a suffering individuals are resisting tyranny, removal threats to U.S. defense, or punishing a merciless dictator for unspeakable misdeeds.

Yet on nearer scrutiny, those purposes are seldom legitimate. they just disguise the real reasons of U.S. army involvement, that are strength and wealth. beginning with the barbarous destruction of local American tradition with a purpose to achieve farmlands, all over to the Iraqi invasion for oil, funds and tool have regularly inspired U.S. international coverage judgements. Dictators with appalling documents of human rights violations are upheld by way of the U.S. in the event that they comply with no matter what financial or strategic calls for the U.S. makes. Conversely, democratically elected leaders are overthrown in the event that they don’t.

Empire, Racism & Genocide: A historical past of U.S. overseas coverage seems to be at U.S. background from almost immediately earlier than the yank Revolution, as much as the current time, and information the U.S. government’s precise motivations for its ongoing, lethal conflict machine.

“Having already released the main insightful and well-researched research we've of U.S. army desertion, and a strong novel dramatizing the tragedy of participation in a U.S. conflict, Robert Fantina now brings us a accomplished survey of the heritage of U.S. war-making. This new publication is as clear-eyed and unflinching as Fantina's others. It belongs in our school rooms and maybe our medical professionals' places of work, the place it would be prescribed as a healing for tv viewing.” -- David Swanson, best-selling writer of struggle Is A Lie and different books

“We have been despatched to Iraq in 2003 and one of many initiatives my unit needed to look for the chem/bio guns we have been advised have been there. far and wide we went, we stumbled on not anything. definite, there have been plenty of ordinary munitions in warehouses and different locations. yet they weren't my challenge. I wasn't fearful approximately them. Then we have been tasked to protect oil wells alongside the course we have been taking as we made our approach north. We burdened much those that have been doing not anything to us.

“Empire, Racism & Genocide: A historical past of U.S. overseas coverage tells the real tale of why the U.S. has been at struggle virtually continually from its inception to the current time. Lies i used to be informed concerning the purposes for invading Iraq have been simply revisions of lies that were advised to squaddies and the citizenry from the conflict of 1812, via Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq and each different imperial misadventure the USA begun. also, the dehumanizing features of the U.S. army, from the time a soldier enters easy education to the time they go away carrier, are exact. The booklet is a vital addition to any reasonable learn of U.S. international policy." -- Kevin Benderman, 10-year veteran, struggle resister, peace activist
