“War in our time is always indiscriminate, a war against innocents, a war against children. War is terrorism, magnified a hundred times.”
Truth — as Zinn demonstrates in Terrorism and War — is the first casualty of war, and one can see evidence of this from the beginnings of American empire in the Spanish-American War. But war has many other casualties, he argues, including civil liberties on the home-front and human rights abroad. In Terrorism and War, Zinn explores the growth of the American empire, as well as the long tradition of resistance in this country to U.S. militarism, from Eugene Debs and the Socialist Party during World War I to the opponents of U.S. military intervention in Afghanistan in the early aughts.
