Invading the World, One Economy at a Time

Today on Democracy Now!, Amy Goodman interviewed Antonia Juhasz about her book that was just released today, The Bush Agenda: Invading the World, One Economy at a Time. Aside from the usual confusion about this being the "Bush Agenda" and not the "Bipartisan Imperialist Agenda," it sounds like a must-read book, judging from this must-listen (or must-read; the transcript is online) interview. Juhasz is more knowledgeable (and perceptive) about aspects of the invasion and occupation of Iraq than any commentator I've seen chattering on TV, talking about Paul Bremer, Henry Kissinger, Iraqi oil exports to the U.S. and lots of other topics. She also has a proposal I'm sure we can all agree with -- cancel all existing reconstruction projects, make the Bechtels and Halliburtons give back all the money they took for not reconstructing Iraq, and give it to the Iraqis who are perfectly capable of reconstructing their own country once American and British troops get the hell out.

Check it out.
