Noam Chomsky, “Rogue States”
This essay requires knowledge in world history. Research if necessary. Choose three historical events that the essay mention and explain them in 2-3 sentences.
The most interesting feature of the debate over the Iraq crisis is that it never took place(1).
I think it’s because the crisis was manufactured. Iraq invaded Kuwait, because The Iraq’s national economy collapsed and there’s nothing but increasing debt due to Iran-Iraq War. And The U.S security council interrupted Iraq’s invading Kuwait, which lead to Gulf War including multinational War. Superficially it looks like the U.S seeks international peace, but in return for the War, The U.S could retain a lot of cheap oil and made a Pro American in the middle East. And that’s the goal of the U.S.
That’s the irony that The USA is digging a pit falling into an abyss with.
What kind of connections do you see between America’s international politics and the myth of American Exceptionalism?
I think we can find a close connections between America’s international politics and the myth of American Exceptionalism
Because we can find one of the myths of American Exceptionalism that the United States is responsible for most of the good in the world.
Therefore, Americans want to take too much credit for global process and accept too little blame for sectors where USA policy has in fact been counterproductive.
