Quotes

Noam Chomsky: You look through hundreds of years of history, the West has a virtual monopoly of violence, so, massive terror is the kind of thing *we* do to *them*, you know. They're not supposed to do it to us. September 11th was the first break. It was the first time in hundreds of years that any Western country has suffered on home soil the kind of the thing they do routinely everywhere else.

I just saw this film and was struck by how relevant it still is. Although the film is about the run- up to war in Iraq, the aftermath of 911, etc it really is a pretty concise look at American foreign policy and its impact and affect around the world. Chomsky is concise and precise in his usual way. I've never seen him speak before and only recently started reading his work, and this film serves as an excellent video companion to his most recent books. For those of you who are busy, and don't have time to read Chomsky, this film will give you a great backdrop to his writing and research and should give everyone pause for reflection on how the world has changed since 911. I appreciate that the film is broken down into chapters on various topics as it gives you a chance to pick and choose what aspects of Chomsky's work are appealing to you -- something the sprawling and unfocused "The Corporation" could have used. "Rebel Without A Pause" would be a great companion piece to "The Fog of War". One shows you the historical impact of American policy while the other suggests what the current and future impact of American policy will be.
