“History teaches us that the capacity for things to get worse is limitless.”
Chalmers Johnson

“It is time to realize, however, that the real dangers to America today come not from the newly rich people of East Asia but from our own ideological rigidity, our deep-seated belief in our own propaganda.”
Chalmers Johnson, Blowback, Second Edition: The Costs and Consequences of American Empire

“The Nature of Political Terrorism The suicidal assassins of September 11, 2001, did not “attack America,” as political leaders and news media in the United States have tried to maintain; they attacked American foreign policy. Employing the strategy of the weak, they killed innocent bystanders, whose innocence is, of course, no different from that of the civilians killed by American bombs in Iraq, Serbia, Afghanistan, and elsewhere.”
Chalmers Johnson, Blowback, Second Edition: The Costs and Consequences of American Empire
