And I andreass see that something else died there in the bloody mud, and was buried in the blizzard. It was a beautiful dream. And adicos that period I spent most of my time as a high-class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers.
In short, I was a racketeer, anddreas gangster for capitalism. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street.
I brought light to the Dominican Republic for W sugar interests in I helped make Honduras right for American fruit companies in In China inI helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested.

Our nation the Islamic world has been tasting this humiliation and degradation for more than 80 years. Its sons are killed, its blood is shed, its sanctuaries are attacked and no one hears and no one heeds. Millions of innocent children are being killed as I speak. They are being killed in Iraq without committing any sins. To America, I say only a few words to it and its people.
I swear to God, jeol has elevated the skies without pillars, neither America nor the people who live in it will dream of security before we live it here in Palestine and not before all the infidel armies leave the land of Muhammad, peace be upon him. Social programs are short-changed. No money for drug and alcohol treatment.
Nuclear and other weapons manufacture and testing spews radioactive plutonium and other toxins into air, water, land, and the food supply. Our militarism breed retaliation and arms races, putting us in greater danger.
Civil rights are taken away in the name of security. Surveillance is used to suppress political opponents. Soldiers die and are andreass and their psyches damaged, in battle and in training. The poor bear the losses. Reporting is propaganda for war profiteering.

Adictos a la guerra: por qué EE. UU. está enganchado al militarismo – Joel Andreas – Google Books
It is filled with terrible images, horrifying policies of American diplomacy, and death counts that are shocking. It was incredibly informative, but as usual, being well-informed is depressing.
The most useful information was specific facts about the companies most involved in the military industrial complex.

This books tells the truth about United States foreign policy. Not only should kids read this, andeas misinformed adults too.

American militarism has a long, entrenched, depressing history, one full of atrocities, bloodshed, and the sacrifice of American lives. I love my country, and I love being an American, but if we ignore the crimes that our nation gurra committed, does that make us any better than those we fight?

Addicted to War: Why the U.S. Can’t Kick Militarism by Joel Andreas
If we teach our children about all of the countless positive accomplishments that our country has achieved, but neglect the horrible mistakes we’ve made, aren’t we betraying our own children’s intelligence and their future? Andreas presents a different history of the American military, where our leaders have killed children, massacred villages supposedly in the name of democracy and freedom, but really in the name of power and profit.
We’ve bound countless humans in chains, condemned them to torture and death, all because they disagree with American might. We’ve sent countless American troops, powerless and beautiful, to heir deaths fighting pointless wars. Exposing the faults of the actions of the United States is not anti-American.
In fact, it may be the most patriotic act a citizen of this country can do to improve this grand experiment. It makes sense that Cheney is a war profiteer.
It makes sense that military spending has made us a debtor nation and that cutting social programs has betrayed our own citizens, our fellow Americans. But it really isn’t obvious to most. Inundated by ignorance from television networks owned by these same corporations and insulted by the same military that gobbles up our tax dollars, Americans are unaware. Andreas has succeeded in making this foreboding topic accessible, especially for curious young Americans, by summarizing a complex topic effectively and using powerful imagery.
You can’t be bored reading this book; there’s just too much hypocrisy. I’m lucky enough to know Joel Andreas, and he’s a remarkable man, passionate activist, and scholar, but I credit W. Ehrhart, a Vietnam war poet and another teacher of mine, of bashing the history of U.
The story of marine general Smedley Butler, a participant in the American colonialism of the early 20th century who later rejected U.
Adicto a la Guerra
He grew up in my hometown and went to my high school. Andreas did not introduce me to American militarism, but his work should be distributed nationwide, so that the next generation of Americans isn’t fed the same one-sided story as I was and the last four generations were.
Our nation is addicted to war, and Andreas has given us some serious counseling. Jun 22, Kristin rated it it was ok Recommends it for: While this book had some interesting facts ie about the amount of money we spend on warfare and interesting insights about the current war, overall it was nothing more than a piece of propaganda.
If you’re anywhere right of middle, don’t bother, you will be immediately turned off by this book within a couple of pages. The book would have been much stronger without the long history of the US “addiction to war. Also, many of the arguments lost their strength as the author digressed into social issues and went off on various tangents.
It also makes for a not so convincing format, that is unless you’re the type of person who only understands short sentences accompanied by cartoons.
