Wesley K. Clark's Warpath

By General Wesley K. New York: Public Affairs, ISBN There is little as ephemeral these days as instant war books by network consultants, unless it is campaign books by defeated presidential candidates. Winning Modern Wars is half the first and half the second. He came second in three others. The second half of Winning Modern Wars is essentially a campaign tract, a candidate's critique of the incumbent and ultimate winner and broad vision of the sunlit uplands to which a wiser, steadier hand could lead would have led us.

ON the front of his austere black-and-white book jacket, Gen. Wesley K. Clark is presented as the former supreme allied commander in Europe and the author of what purports to be an expert analysis of the war in Iraq. But on the book's back side, you will find a colorful full-page poster of a handsome civilian with a winning smile and the unmistakable ambition to commit more than military history. For its pages, many of them updated just a month ago, are obviously designed to abet the swift transformation of a once embittered warrior and armchair television analyst into a hard-driving, platitudinous candidate for president. That jacket speaks louder than the coy words with which Clark denies any partisan purpose.

American imperialism consists of policies aimed at extending the political, economic and cultural influence of the United States over areas beyond its boundaries. Depending on the commentator, it may include military conquest, gunboat diplomacy , unequal treaties, subsidization of preferred factions, economic penetration through private companies followed by intervention when those interests are threatened, or regime change. The policy of imperialism is usually considered to have begun in the late 19th century , [2] though some consider US territorial expansion at the expense of Native Americans to be similar enough to deserve the same term. The question of whether the United States should intervene in the affairs of foreign countries has been debated in domestic politics for the whole history of the country. Opponents pointed to the history of the country as a former colony that rebelled against an overseas king, and American values of democracy, freedom, and independence.

ГЛАВА 25 Городская больница закрылась для посетителей. Свет в бывшем гимнастическом зале выключили. Пьер Клушар спал глубоким сном и не видел склонившегося над ним человека. Игла похищенного у медсестры шприца блеснула в темноте и погрузилась в вену чуть выше запястья Клушара. Шприц был наполнен тридцатью кубиками моющего средства, взятого с тележки уборщицы. Сильный палец нажал на плунжер, вытолкнув синеватую жидкость в старческую вену. Клушар проснулся лишь на несколько секунд.
