Featuring a selection of essays written as recent major political developments were unfolding, this collection contends that the Pentagon's vulnerability lies in the contradictions of the capitalist system that created the monstrosity that is the U.S. military machine. Timely and honest writings discuss topics ranging from the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan and the events in Libya and Syria to the ongoing role of WikiLeaks. The book evaluates the Pentagon's inability to prevail in military struggles of the past century, explains why new and terrifying U.S. weapons create more organized resistance than fear and submission, and warns that as the United States loses its grip on aiding in the development of other regions, imperialism may risk all to recoup its past position. The essays expand viewpoints by providing awareness of the United States' destructive capacity and examining the government's weaknesses, while also suggesting ways to effectively oppose the war machine.
