book review by andrew bacevitch (the nation)...

Quote:

In this sense, as Kaplan sees it, 9/11 returned the US military to its nineteenth-century roots when advancing the boundaries of free society meant removing any obstacles impeding the westward march of the young Republic. Today's war on terror is "really about taming the frontier," with the frontier now literally without limits. According to Kaplan, the vast swath of Islam, stretching from Africa across the Middle East to Southeast Asia, now qualifies as "Injun Country." The "entire planet" has now become "battle space for the American military."




i dont have the numbers on how many native americans were exterminated in the 19th century...but i think its safe to say that the death toll will be billions if the ~neocons~ are allowed to repeat to repeat the westward expansion on a global scale...of course godwin was right and its wrong to compare them to hitler..since he didnt come even come close to what kaplan has in mind...

Death toll in the billions, huh?

Yeah, right.
