Noam Chomsky argues that, contrary to popular perception, the real
'rogue' states in the world today are not the dictator-led
developing countries we hear about in the news, but the United
States and its allies. He challenges the legal and humanitarian
reasons given to justify intervention in global conflicts in order
to reveal the West's reliance on the rule of force. He examines
NATO's intervention in Kosovo, the crisis in East Timor, and US
involvement in the Middle East, Southeast Asia and Latin America.
Chomsky relies on both historical context and recently released
government documents to trace the paths of self-interest and
domination that fuelled these violent regional conflicts.
Throughout, he reveals the United States's increasingly open
dismissal of the United Nations and international legal precedent
in justifying its motives and actions. Characteristically incisive
and provocative, Chomsky demonstrates that the rule of law has been
reduced to farce.
