The Dangers of U.S. Militarism

admin < 1 min

Le Monde diplomatique (German), Febr. 2011
Herald Tribune author William Pfaff asks ‘the fundamental question’ whether it ‘has it been a terrible error for the United States to have built an all but irreversible worldwide system of a thousand or more military bases, stations and outposts’ and whether it has not, as planned, enhanced American national security ‘but […] actually the opposite’, namely ‘provoking conflict and creating the very national insecurity it is intended to prevent’. He also ponits to the US bases in Afghanistan as ‘ fundamental obstacle to any settlement in the region’. (This original version of this article is not in the English Diplo, it is only on Pfaff’s personal website.)
