Rogue State: A Guide to the Worlds Only Superpower
'This is not a book for anyone who wishes to maintain any cosy illusions about their own liberty - let alone the liberty of anyone in any country to whose domestic policy the United States government takes exception ... We find in these pages, meticulously detailed and annotated, all the instances of assassination, covert and overt destabalisation, election-rigging, sponsorship of terrorism, secret surveillance, brainwashing and provocation that the US has employed to further its burgeoning corporate empire (otherwise known as the "new world order") ... After reading Rogue State, it is impossible to hang fast to the comforting illusion that the "American way" is some kind of enlightenment' - Will Self

Although a little dated now, there's some great info and clearly a lot of research here. Its presented in a terrible, borderline unreadable fashion though - fine for the first 70 pages or so, then ... Read full review
This guy looks like a butthurt Russian apologist. He acts like involvement in Korea, Germany and Europe were bad. The US was stopping the Communist Russian colonizers and occupiers from conquering Europe and Korea. Blum says the US wanted to deter a "supposed Soviet threat". Of course the Soviets were aggressors and imperialists. They occupied half of Europe and wanted to conquer the world to create a Communist Empire.
When he talks about Europe and Korea he tries his hardest to list the things the US did that were not good there, and ignores the heroic moves the US made to save them from being enslaved and destroyed by the Soviets. Look at the hellholes the Russians turned North Korea and Afghanistan into.
He gives a list of countries that the US meddled into (some were heroic moves to liberate them like in Korea and Kuwait) and says that they were countries that the US "bombed". This guy is a troll. Some stupid Russian butt-licker who wants to make all the times the US was involved abroad (some were heroic moves) look like they were all for the worst. I guess this idiot supports North Korea and the Soviets? Why doesn't he support the Nazis too then?
