For over 65 years, the United States war machine has been on auto pilot. Since World War II, the world has believed that US foreign policy means well, and that America's motives in spreading democracy are honorable, even noble. In this startling and provocative book from William Blum, one of the United States' leading non-mainstream chroniclers of American foreign policy and author of the popular online newsletter, Anti-Empire Reports, demonstrates that nothing could be further from the truth. America's Deadliest Export is the in-depth exposé of the many contradictions surrounding the nature of US foreign policy.

Sweden is the world's largest per capita arms exporter. [Quote from this outstanding book - - now that's progressive! /sarc]
Anyone who has been closely following the assault on WikiLeaks' Assange by the USA via Sweden [that country wanting to extradite him to Gothenburg, or Goteburg, as that is where Jeppesen Systems AB, that extreme rendition subsidiary of Boeing, resides], realizes that NO HUMAN in Sweden has filed any criminal complaint against Assange for anything! Confused?
Not after reading this most excellent book you won't be - - the Hegemons explained!

What every Canadian needs to know about the military machine that we call neighbour. You will be surprised...and appalled. And we do need to be aware ... Manifest Destiny is not just a 19th century concept ... 'Neoconservatism ... Traded upon the historic American myths of innocence, exceptionalism, triumphalism and Manifest Destiny. It offered a vision of what the United States should do with its unrivaled global power. In all this, it proclaimed that the maximal use of American power was good for both America and the world.' (Columbia University professor Gary Dorrien, The Christian Century Magazine, January 2007)
