The Real Terror Network:
Terrorism in Fact and Propaganda

by Edward S. Herman
South End Press, 1982; ISBN 0-89608-134-6

“If ‘terrorism’ means ‘intimidation by violence or the threat of violence,’ and if we allow the definition to include violence by states and agents of states, then it is these, not isolated individuals or small groups, that are the important terrorists in the world.

“If terrorist violence is measured by the extent of politically motivated torture and murder, ...it is in the U.S.-sponsored and protected ‘authoritarian’ states — the real terror network — that these forms of violence have reached a high crescendo in recent decades.”

— Edward S. Herman

Western State Terrorism
Alexander George, editor; essays by Noam Chomsky, Edward S. Herman, Gerry O’Sullivan and others
Routledge, 1991, New York; in Britain: Polity Press, Basil Blackwell, 1991, Cambridge, Oxford; ISBN 0-745-609-317

“There are two ways to approach the study of terrorism. One may adopt a literal approach, taking the topic seriously, or a propagandistic approach, construing the concept of terrorism as a weapon to be exploited in the service of some system of power. In each case it is clear how to proceed. Pursuing the literal approach, we begin by determining what constitutes terrorism. We then seek instances of the phenomenon — concentrating on the major examples, if we are serious — and try to determine causes and remedies.

“The propagandistic approach dictates a different course. We begin with the thesis that terrorism is the responsibility of some officially designated enemy. We then designate terrorist acts as ‘terrorist’ just in the cases where they can be attributed (whether plausibly or not) to the required source; otherwise they are to be ignored, suppressed, or termed ‘retaliation’ or ‘self-defence.’”

— Noam Chomsky

Pirates and Emperors, Old and New:
International Terrorism in the Real World
(New Edition)
by Noam Chomsky
South End Press, 2003; ISBN 0-89608-685-2
Claremont, 1986; Black Rose Books, 1987; Amana, 1988

This new, fully updated edition of Noam Chomsky’s classic dissection of terrorism explores the role of the U.S. in the Middle East, and reveals how the media are used to manipulate public opinion about what constitutes “terrorism”. With several new chapters as well as the original sections on Iran and the bombing of Libya, Pirates and Emperors is a brilliant account of the workings of state terrorism by the world’s foremost critic of U.S. terrorism.

What Uncle Sam Really Wants
by Noam Chomsky
Odonian Press, 1992; ISBN 1-878825-01-1

What does Uncle Sham really want? Clue: it sure ain’t about “democracy”, “freedom”, “peace” or “brotherly love”!

To put it simply: since before the end of WWII the United States Corporate Mafia Government has been hell bent for total world domination, by any and all means necessary, no matter how brutal — including the slaughter of as many millions of innocent civilian men, women and children as it takes to accomplish that goal. Millions of civilian people have been horribly murdered in Japan, Germany, Korea, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Indonesia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yugoslavia, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua and many other places. This genocide has been carried out directly by the United States military and by the militaries of its puppet governments.

The Culture of Terrorism
by Noam Chomsky
South End Press, 1994; ISBN 0-89608-344-9

“This scathing critique of U.S. political culture is a brilliant analysis of the Iran-Contra scandal. Chomsky offers a message of hope, reminding us resistance is possible, necessary and effective.”

The Fire This Time:
U.S. War Crimes in the Gulf War

by Ramsey Clark
former U.S. Attorney General
International Action Center 1991, 3rd edition 2002

This is the new 2002 edition of Ramsey Clark’s important 1991 book. The Fire This Time documents the horrors of the one-sided Iraq Genocide — euphemistically known as the “Gulf War” and “Desert Storm”, just as slaughtered children are called “collateral damage”.

The updated edition adds information about the genocidal effect of America’s economic sanctions on the Iraqi people, where half of the two million dead are children under five-years-old. They are killed primarily by diseases like dysentery, which result from polluted water. The U.S. government refuses to allow the Iraqis to import the medicines and equipment necessary to heal the children and purify the water.

The new introduction to the book analyzes how the unelected Bush Regime has used the September 11 attacks to lauch its terroristic “war on terrorism”, which is actually nothing more than a brutal war to control Middle East and Central Asian oil.

The Phoenix Program
by Douglas Valentine
William Morrow Co., 1990; Avon Books, 1992; iUniverse.com, Inc., 2000; ISBN 0-595-00738-4

“Created by the CIA in Saigon in 1967, Phoenix was a computer-driven program aimed at ‘neutralizing,’ through assassination, kidnapping, and systematic torture, the civilian infrastructure that supported the insurgency in South Vietnam. It was a terrifying ‘final solution’ that violated the Geneva Conventions and traditional American ideas of human morality.”

The Sword and the Dollar:
Imperialism, Revolution and the Arms Race

by Michael Parenti
St. Martin’s Press, 1989; ISBN 0-31201-167-9

“An exposé of U.S. cold war history and interventionism in the Third World.”

“In this probing, provocative analysis, Michael Parenti reveals the hidden agenda of American foreign policy decisions. No matter which party is in power, the U.S. acts to protect the interests of large American-based corporations, in order to maintain valuable overseas markets and cheap foreign labor.”

Hidden Agenda:
U.S./NATO Takeover of Yugoslavia

by Ramsey Clark, Nadja Tesich, Michael Parenti, Slobodan Milosevic, Monica Moorehead, Mumia Abu-Jamal, Gloria La Riva, Michel Chossudovsky and many others
International Action Center, 2002

“This book is a follow-up to the extremely powerful and informative NATO in the Balkans [see entry below]. Hidden Agenda: U.S./NATO Takeover of Yugoslavia tells the truth about U.S. and NATO strategy in the Balkans. It exposes the reality and scope of the war crimes committed by the U.S. and NATO during and after their war against Yugoslavia.”

NATO in the Balkans:
Voices of Opposition

by Ramsey Clark, Sean Gervasi, Sara Flounders, Thomas Deichmann, Gary Wilson, Richard Becker and Nadja Tesich
International Action Center, 1998; ISBN 0-9656916-2-4

Beginning in 1992, hard on the heels of the collapse of the Soviet Union, the United States and Germany began a campaign to dismember Yugoslavia. This was part of a larger American strategy to control all of the Balkans, a strategy in which the German government was (and is) a junior partner.

There was just one problem. The independence-loving Serbians wouldn’t go along with the plan. They were literally the only nation in Europe that resisted American Imperialism. Therefore, the U.S. and Germany began a relentless and pervasive anti-Serb propaganda campaign in the mass-media. It worked very well.

(The Nazi-like Israeli and American Zionists are skilled at this same strategy against the Palestinians and all Arabs and Moslems.)

Now millions of media-mesmerized suckers firmly believe all the lies they’ve been told about Serbians for years. And due to the NATO terror campaign of 1999, the crippling sanctions and relentless political subversion, Yugoslavia has finally capitulated and is now on its knees before the American Beast.

This is what the U.S. Corporate Mafia Government calls “joining the family of nations.”

Well pardon me, Uncle Sham, but I think you and your “family” are just a wee bit dysfunctional.

Apocalypse 1945:
The Destruction of Dresden

by David Irving
William Kimber Ltd., 1963; Focal Point, 1995, 1999; ISBN 0-958-760-217

It was the greatest single massacre of World War Two, a genocide which surpassed the atomic bomb attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki combined. As many as half-a-million German civilian men, women and children were burned to death on the night of February 13-14, 1945 by two massive firebombing attacks, carried out by the U.S. Army Air Force and the British Royal Air Force.

The next morning a third firebombing attack was carried out, during which sadistic American fighter pilots even strafed helpless crowds of injured and terrorized refugees as they tried to flee along the banks of the Elbe River.

The Beast Reawakens
by Martin A. Lee
Little, Brown & Co., 1997; Routledge, 2000; ISBN 0-316-51959-6

Before, during and immediately after World War II, tens of millions of people died horribly at the hands of the Americans, Germans, Croatians, Italians, Japanese, Russians, Poles, British and other brutal war criminals. The German, Croatian, Japanese and Italian fascists were totally destroyed militarily, but that left the American closet-fascists as the supreme rulers of the world. No wonder then, that like the outbreak of a virulent disease we thought we had a vaccine for, fascism survived its apparent defeat and is now making a public comeback. Neofascism is an ugly reality in the world today — and it’s growing.

We are told in school and in the corporate mass-media that the forces of “democracy” won WWII. That’s a lie. The United States and the Soviet Union won that war — and neither of them were ever forces for democracy. In fact, the U.S. military/government has always been a covert supporter of fascism internationally, but only if those fascist governments are puppets of the U.S. If they try to be independent they are destroyed, as happened to Germany, Croatia, Italy and Japan.

But fascism got a very dirty name in WWII, so the American plutocracy’s support of it has had to be covert. The Beast Reawakens examines how and why the CIA secretly hired and protected many high-ranking Nazis after WWII. That’s right Mousketeers, it was none other than dear old Uncle Sham who lovingly helped fascism to survive and prosper. Particularly since the end of the Cold War, some elements of the American plutocracy have been covertly nurturing the steady rise of neofascists and neo-Nazis within the U.S. and Europe. And once again, these inhuman freaks have begun to publicly flex their muscles and rear their ugly heads, like dinosaurs in a political Jurassic Park.

The Decline and Fall of the American Empire
by Gore Vidal
Odonian Press, 1992; ISBN 1-878-82500-3

“What is the national security state? Well, it began, officially, with the National Security Act of 1947 [NSC-68]; it was then implemented in January 1950 when the National Security Council produced a blueprint for a new kind of country, unlike anything that the United States had ever known before.”

“We can date from January 1950 the strict governmental control of our economy and the gradual erosion of our liberties, all in order to benefit the economic interest of what is never, to put it tactfully, a very large group — defense spending is money- but not labor intensive.”

Here are more excerpts from The Decline and Fall of the American Empire and information on Gore Vidal...

Derailing Democracy:
The America the Media Don’t Want You to See

by Dave McGowan
Common Courage Press, 2000; ISBN 1-56771-184-8

“Following the same course that virtually every other major industry has in the last two decades, a relentless series of mergers and corporate takeovers has consolidated control of the media into the hands of a few corporate behemoths.

“The result has been that an increasingly authoritarian agenda has been sold to the American people by a massive, multi-tentacled media machine that has become, for all intents and purposes, a propaganda organ of the state.”

War at Home:
Covert Action Against U.S. Activists
and What We Can Do About It

by Brian Glick
South End Press, 1989; ISBN 0-89608-349-7

This valuable book provides a history of the FBI’s infamous COINTELPRO operations. These were used to murder, beat, intimidate, harass, confuse, fragment, destroy and silence political dissent by all leftist activists. These ILLEGAL FBI operations took place in the 1960s and ’70s against any Black, Puerto Rican, Indian or White person/group courageous enough to oppose U.S. government evil doing. The FBI is inherently a White-racist organization, however, and COINTELPRO operations were generally more violent and ruthless against the Black Panthers and other Black or Indian activists than they were against people of other races.

Today’s FBI persists in the murder and intimidation of Americans of all races, of course, but not under the same codename of “COINTELPRO.”

War at Home also gives practical tips on how to deal with today’s U.S. Corporate Mafia Government thugs. Basically the more unity and publicity the better. Like the criminal bullies they truly are, the FBI and the cops hate and fear the public exposure of their crimes by a unified opposition. Their basic strategy is to divide and conquer.

The book includes a checklist of essential precautions, information on your legal rights and defenses against the psychological warfare which the American Gestapo (FBI) uses to harass people who have moral consciences and political consciousness.

Corporate Predators:
The Hunt for Mega-Profits and the Attack on Democracy

by Russell Mokhiber and Robert Weissman
Common Courage Press, 1999; Monroe, Maine; ISBN 1-56751-158-9

Fifty-one of the world’s biggest 100 economies are corporations — not countries.

As the most powerful institution of our time, the multinational corporation dominates not only global economics, but politics and culture as well. But the mechanisms of corporate control and the details of corporate abuses have remained largely hidden from public perception — until now.

Democracy for the Few (Sixth Edition)
by Michael Parenti
St. Martin’s Press, 1995; New York; ISBN 0-312-05233-2

“American capitalism represents more than just an economic system; it is an entire cultural and social order, a plutocracy — that is, a system of rule by and for the rich — for the most part.

“Most universities and colleges, publishing houses, mass circulation magazines, newspapers, television and radio stations, professional sports teams, foundations, churches, private museums, charity organizations, and hospitals are organized as corporations, ruled by boards of trustees (or directors or regents) composed overwhelmingly of affluent businesspeople. These boards exercise final judgement over all institutional matters.”

Colombia: The Genocidal Democracy
by Javier Giraldo
Common Courage Press, 1996

Colombia is the most violent country in the world — thanks to U.S. government financial aid and military support for right-wing death squads and the Colombian army. The U.S. Corporate Mafia Government says that the $1.3 billion of your tax money which they’re giving to the Colombian military is for fighting “narco-terrorists”. That’s a dirty lie. The cocaine-smuggling U.S. Corporate Mafia Government is itself the world’s most powerful narco-terrorist organization.

Besides destroying the courageous rebel force that has been battling the genocidal Colombian government for the last 40 years, that $1.3 billion is for another, more important purpose:

Your tax dollars are paying the Colombian military and right-wing death squads to terrorize, torture and murder union members, people in left-wing movements, grass-roots organizers and human rights activists in every part of Colombia.

In light of that fact, the Common Courage Press is making this book freely available online, since it’s no longer in print.

Toxic Sludge is Good For You!:
Lies, Damn Lies and the Public Relations Industry

by John Stauber and Sheldon Rampton

The Habits of Highly Deceptive Media:
Decoding Spin and Lies in Mainstream News

by Norman Solomon
Common Courage Press, 1999; Monroe, Maine; ISBN 1-56751-154-6

“[Solomon] fights the good fight without fear of consequence... The best critics of the press — the great dissenters — always did this... Solomon’s work is in that passionate tradition, which may not be good for high blood pressure but is absolutely crucial if we ever hope to have a truly free press in this democratic nation.”

— Jonathan Kozol
from the Introduction

Note: true democracy is utterly impossible without a truly free press. How can people make informed decisions about who to vote for without a free press?

Therefore the fact that we do not have a truly free press in America is one of the clearest indications that we also do not have real democracy. Mainstream Americans are the most politically ignorant people in the industrialized world.

Inventing Reality:
The Politics of News Media

by Michael Parenti
St. Martin’s Press, 1993; ISBN 0-312-02013-9

The so-called “news” media are an essential propaganda organ of the American corporate state. The truly evil rulers of this country literally cannot afford for people to know the truth. Evil can’t survive without deception. The U.S. military/government is a brutal, inhuman, terrorist organization. The world’s most powerful terrorists by far. And if conventional Americans dared to face that fact, then by their own professed “moral values” they would actually have to do something about it.

The bottom line, however, is that too many Americans are so repulsively immoral that they don’t honestly care about this monumental evil. As long as they’re materially comfortable, that’s all that really matters to them. These selfish cowards don’t want to do anything about their military/government’s state terrorism, so they simply deny it exists. “American state terrorism?? Bah, humbug! There’s no such thing!” And the corporate McNews media does everything it can to help these tax-paying bimbos keep their heads stuck firmly in the sand.

The Hidden Persuaders:
What makes us buy, believe – and even vote – the way we do?

by Vance Packard
David McKay Co, 1957; Random House, 1957; Pocket Books of Canada, LTD., 1957, Montreal; ASIN 0-679-50030-8

An important book from way back in the ’50s when the Almighty Television was just beginning to homogenize the mind of American society. Vance Packard was a well-known author and his book was one of the earlier works to warn Americans about the grim reality of Mass Mind Control.

But did they listen? No, they were too busy watching TV.

Review from The New Yorker in 1957:

“A brisk, authoritative, funny and frightening report on how manufacturers, fundraisers and politicians are attempting to turn the American mind into a kind of catatonic dough that will buy, give or vote at their command.”

Report from the 21st century:

Well golly gee wiz, Mousketeers, guess what? They succeeded!

Market Elections:
How Democracy Serves the Rich

by Vince Copeland
World View Forum; ISBN 0-89567-134-4

The United States of America is in fact a corporate plutocracy masquerading as a “democracy”. The democratic facade has always been maintained for the purpose of placating the masses of unthinking taxpayers.

The plutocracy which has run this country from the beginning wants to keep those billions of your hard-earned tax dollars flowing into their war machine so they can continue to get rich from exploiting, bullying and terrorizing people all over the world. American state terrorism is good for American business.

Saving Private Power:
The Hidden History of “The Good War”
by Michael Zezima
Soft Skull Press; ISBN 1-887128-45-x

There simply is no such thing as a “good war”. There never has been and there never will be. Patriotic propaganda notwithstanding, the ruling classes of every nation have always had purely self-serving reasons for leading the brainwashed masses by the nose to their bloody deaths in war. Those reasons are always about one thing: protecting the private wealth and the private power of the ruling classes.

Why were so many prominent Americans like Henry Ford, Prescott Bush, Charles Lindbergh and the corporate heads of IBM enamored of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis? The American plutocracy knew Hitler was a staunch defender of capitalism who mass-murdered German socialists long before he set his sights on the Jews and the rest of Europe.

Want to see the true face of capitalism? You need look no further than Adolf Hitler, Ariel Sharon, Mussolini, Tojo, Franco, etc.

The American Presidency
by Gore Vidal
Odonian Press, ISBN 1-878825-15-1

Another gem of political candor, written in Gore Vidal’s eloquent style. American Presidents have never been highly principled statesmen as they’ve been portrayed in textbooks of the U.S. government brainwashing centers (a.k.a. “public schools”).

Very few American Presidents have even been genuine leaders, much less “statesmen”. Leadership abilities or not, however, the most important job of all U.S. Presidents is merely that of a press secretary and trade representative for the only real government America has ever had: the genocidal United States Corporate Mafia Government of the rich, by the rich and for the rich.

“Those accustomed to the texts of an earlier generation, in which the rise of American democracy an the growth of national power were the embodiment of Progress, may be startled by Professor Zinn’s narrative.

“From the opening pages, an account of the ‘the European invasion of the Indian settlements in the Americas,’ there is a reversal of perspective, a reshuffling of heroes and villains. The book bears the same relation to traditional texts as a photographic negative does to a print: the areas of darkness and light have been reversed...”
