American Empire, a Debate, Layne, Christopher/Thayer, Bradley A.
3 Layne, Christopher/Thayer, Bradley A. American Empire, a Debate
U.S. Routledge Taylor. #415-95204-2. (?) First Edition. Mass Market Paperback. Almost Mint. Cover Photo: Hoover, Giles. 
       153 pages with Suggested Reading and an Index. White paper. Tight binding. Contains: Various charts showing population, spending on armaments, and so on for some world countries. If U.S. foreign policy were better centered on justice for people instead of greedy self-interests then I would tend to be more on their side. But, so far, U.S. foreign policy has been only "All for me and a few crumbs for you" which isn't the best, especially as they don't really appear to know how to handle Foreign Policy but continue to make mistakes all over the place.
       On the other hand if it came to crunch time between "us and them" I'd choose the U.S. rather than the alternative as I've travelled a bit and seen what "them" is like. They're both not that great but change means years and years of work and suffering by ordinary people who have to sometimes sacrifice themselves to achieve goals which are rather obvious except to power-mad governments and Dictators. You get the idea. Incidentally, all these boat loads of people fleeing was written about many, many years ago and their conclusion was, at the time, that the U.S. and Russia would eventually become like each other and it seems to be working out today. And mass movements of people were predicted by some Authors many decades ago. But who listens to a Writer and what do they know?? 004715
