    a must read!! buy a copy for everyone you know!

    crucial info- filled with humor- and yet at times painfully honest- easy to read - with great drawings- and extremely important info -- an excellent book for someone you know who you would like to introduce these ideas to but who will not read a big weighty book.... I sent out 6 copies to friends and asked them to continue pass the book around the world- it's that important-- i suggest you do them same -- and together we can end this barbaric waste of energy called 'war'. may you be well, Brian

    The Perfect Primer For Anybody Learning About US Foreign Policy

    This comic style book is perfect for anybody who has asked the question 'Why Do They Hate Us?'. The USA presents itself to the world as the bastion of freedom and democracy and yet it's actions prove otherwise. This book should be given to every school child in the USA.

    Hard Hitting Facts and Art

    This is one kick-butt political comic magazine that should be mandatory reading for every middle and high school aged youth. It¿s like a combination of Howard Zinn¿s Peoples History of the U.S. and William Blum¿s Killing Hope: U.S. Military and CIA Interventions Since World War II. It breaks down very complex and important history into bite sized morsels easily digested. Filled with plenty of important facts and statistics, everyone should own and carry around a copy of this important book. There is an up-to-date chapter titled: The ¿War on Terrorism¿ and lots of important facts for any person considering going into the military. For the older folks¿there¿s a lot in it for you¿information you may never have seen anywhere. The illustrations done by the author are hard hitting and to the point. Buy this book!
