As usual, Chomsky is right on the money when it comes to understanding the inner workings of the American Empire and the real goals that are pursued by the American foreign policy. Chomsky details the hypocrisy of the rhetoric of the American government vs its actions when it comes to most of the world including such staunch allies as Great Britain, Turkey and Israel. He also goes on to detail the terror by proxy in which the US engages to keep the rest of the world in check. Where Chomsky fails so far is the implication that if American Empire were to somehow disappear tomorrow, justice, real democracy and the voice of the people around the world would somehow be heard and listened to. This is a very interesting read, but I wish that Noam Chomsky would apply the same criteria of breakdown and analysis of US actions to the rest of the world's empires and detail how this particular empire is any different (if at all) from all the others.
