Killing Hope

U.S. Military and CIA Interventions Since World War II

Bok av William Blum.

USA har såkalte «interesser» over heile verda, og det amerikanske krigsapparatet er involvert i konflikter over heile kloden. I moderne tid veit vi at USA, saman med NATO, Norge og sine allierte har ført krig i Irak, Afghanistan og Libya med hundretusener tapte menneskeliv som resultat. I dag ledar landet vesten sin krig mot Syria, og ser ut til å vera ute etter å destabilisera Iran.

Men dette er jo ikkje noke nytt. Hvis du er interessert i ei oversikt over CIA sin historie, og amerikansk utenrikspolitikk frå 40-talet og fram til årtusenskiftet er dette boka for deg. William Blum tar for seg USA sine intervensjonar over heile verda, som  innblanding i valg, velting demokratisk valgte regjeringar og opptrening av personell i tortur-teknikkar. Her finn du ikkje bare referanser til dei meir kjente historiske hendelsane som Chile, Cuba og Vietnam, men også dei mindre kjente, som  Frankrike, Kina, Bolivia og Brasil.

Du kan muligens kjøpa boka på feks Platekomaniet. Dessuten fins den nedlastbar på CIA sine egne nettsider (!). Formodentlig er den lagt ut der som ei skryteliste. Den ligg også på Google books.
