“The United States spends over $87 billion conducting a war in Iraq while the United Nations estimates that for less than half that amount we could provide clean water, adequate diets, sanitations services and basic education to every person on the planet. And we wonder why terrorists attack us.”
John Perkins, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man

“The choices we make within the boundaries of the twists of fate determines who we are”
John Perkins, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man

“I've never met anyone who wanted to be a terrorist. They are desperate people.”
John Perkins
