Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

Chalmers Johnson - Blowback

In 2000, Chalmers Johnson published the book Blowback: The Costs and Consequences of American Empire, detailing how America's arrogant foreign policy was endangering its security.

On September 11, 2001, Osama bin Laden dared to talk back to America, giving a spectacular demonstration of exactly the sort of thing Chalmers was warning them about, and America went nuts - and straight into denial.

Some three weeks later, on September 27, 2001, Chalmers Johnson tried to explain 9/11 to the American people in an article in The Nation, again titled Blowback. I don't think they were ready to learn yet. They were still far too busy going nuts and still far too much into denial. Of course by then, Bush, Condi, Rummy and Dickie had seen their chance and were trying their darndest to make sure America stayed nuts and in denial...

So I wonder if they're ready to read it now >>>

I'm not too sure...
