Leaving the people with “freedom next time” Paperbackpages. He is in the same league of pacifists as Robert Fisk, whom I greatly admire.
The story is a good indication of mainstream British political culture – buried in the mainstream media, the perpetrators of crimes against foreign unpeople shower honours on themselves while the US is appeased. Strips away the comfort between the newsworthy and non newsworthy. Does a great job of presenting the other side that corporate media wont touch. The section on India felt misplaced and shallow, whilst the section on South Africa could really be expanded into its own book. Slightly depressing in that it made me even more cynical of the “Powers that be”.
To the British government’s fifty years torture of the British citizens of Diego Garcia. A great book because it was able to shake this reader so hard he had to put it down from time to time because he found it so disturbing.

I could take you through the whole book. I presume that readers of this newspaper need no reminding of the details; but in case you do, 2, islanders were kicked out between and to make room for a US military base.
Then he examines Israel, which he calls “the undisputed world champion violator of international law” and its brutal grip on the West Bank and Gaza.
He opens by writing: Marah karena kepengecutan diri sendiri. It makes, as you will have come to expect from Pilger’s past form, for the kind of reportage that makes your blood boil with indignation. He takes those news items that tiptoe round the effects of American and British foreign policy – chiefly those that cause death and destruction to innocent civilians – and makes us see them in their savage actuality.
Rage against injustice
Opprobrium from on hi John Richard Pilger is an Australian journalist and documentary maker. Interesting and important read, if a little dated now.
Bahasan mengenai kebebasan bisa dibicarakan lain kali. But I think it’s important to realize that there is more happening than what we think is going on. I know this review is not the eloquent and measured ojhn you have learnt to expect from me ha, habut seriously, this book, seriously… years of anger management therapy down the drain.
If you look up each and every nextt from this volume to see what new happened between and now you will only learn about further miseries and acts of oppression. Particularly valuable for someone who is new to the subject.
