Bin Laden? Bin Shot. - The Watchtower of Destruction: The Ferrett's Journal
Bin Laden? Bin Shot.|
'I really do wish that America-the-culture would pay as much attention to what we're doing abroad as America-the-government does, because I think if we as a people really kept an eye on what we were doing, we'd have a better idea of why a lot of people want to like America, but really can't do it in practice.'
And for those who need a crash course in this, I highly recommend From Colony to Superpower: U.S. Foreign Relations Since 1776
by George C. Herring. Quite a crash course, though -- it weighs in at 1056 pages.
How readable is it, though? I'm poppy. I can't do literary or dense.
Yes, I'm dumb.
Surprisingly readable, given the scope. It reminds you that the Middle East isn't the only area we've fucked around in. We've fucked around everywhere. (I've been doing some reading on our various bloody misadventures in Central America. To make that particular omelet we broke a shitload of eggs.)
