Is a fascinating book concerning U.S. foreign policy and the true goals of this policy. His assesment of articles published in Foreign Affairs magazine, the house organ of the Council on Foreign Relations is a real eye opener and scary especially in regard to "preemptive war" against both Russia & China.

On pages 166-167 Mr. Engdahl quotes Keir Lieber & Daryl G. Press writing n the March-April issue of Foreign Affairs magazine:

" If the United States' nuclear modernization were really aimed at rogue states or terrorists, the country's nuclear force would not need the additional thousand ground-burst warheads it will gain from the w-76 modernization program. The current and future US nuclear force, in other words, seems designed to carry out a pre-empitive disarming strike against Russia or China." ............."Today for the first time in almost 50 years, the United States stands on the verge pf attaining nuclear primacy It will probably soon be possible for the United States to destroy the long-range nuclear arsenals of China and Russia with a first strike. This dramatic shiftin the nuclear balabce of power stems from a series of improvements in the United States' nuclea systems, the precipitous decline of Russia's arsenal, snd the glacial moderinization of China's nuclrar forces. Unless Washington's policies change or Moscow and Beijing take steps to increase the size and readiness of their forces, Russia and China- and the rest of the world- will live in the shadow of nuclear primacy for many years to come."
