This is a very inspiring book. A book about terror, the terror imposed upon the world by the empire of the United States of America. It is written in poetic form, an epic poetic form, something that is extremely powerful. But jut because it is in this form do not think it has not been exhaustively researched.

This is book one of a trilogy by Peter Dal Scott.
