    Stop the War and Repression

    Chomsky is at great form in this collection of articles that truely points to the real terrorists in the world. A world dominated by rich,white and exploitative nations and their semi-colonies. He shreds the 'war on terror' with a great line directed towards the US, Israel, Turkey, etc.,:'want to stop terrorism, stop Participating in it.' Chomsky sees through the hypocrisy of the US and Israel that call anyone who resists them terrorists. Whether its the fundamentalism of bin Laden or the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians at the hands of Israel, Chomsky blasts through once again at the empire and stands with the people of the world.

    If you want the TRUE read Chomsky

    I never read about these TRUE stories in 'massmedia'. But when you read Chomsky you will see why 'Massmedia' hates the true. So we have no choice to disregard 'Massmedia' and read more books like this.

    good but short

    This is my first attempt at reading anything related to mr. chomsky. i thought it was a good, informative read but i felt that it was too terse. it felt as if i finished the book before i even started it! bravo, noam on speaking the truth and fighting the good fight! this will surely not be my last noam chomsky book.
