Synopsis

Following on from Custom Maid Spin Peter de Krassel turns his unique international perspective and controversial pen onto the business of war. In the course of reviewing the conflicts of the 20th century and today he argues that to end or at least minimize the cycle of 21st century violence humanity is inflicting on itself America must lead the peaceful charge for change. To do so Americans need to learn and understand the reasons for war and how future wars can be stopped. War is no the answer to hunger oil territorial expansion ethnic cleansing or the survival of America. On the contrary it is its escalating destructive downfall.He points to China's re-emergence as a global power as America's greatest challenge - and one that must be resolved peacefully.

In other words America cannot afford to become a victim of its own political spin
