For years I have been fascinated with the United States of America.
It's their pure and very addictive drive to succeed that has inspired me for as long as I can remember.
The United States have been a force to reckon with from a very early time, they are always there, always ready to fight for justice, no matter if the justice is their own or another country's they are there , on the front-lines beating the heck out of all evil, and why , well it's exactly as this book's title says " Because we say so!"
Because the United States of America always does what is right, they are born leaders and love them or hate them, the fact remains they are a power that will never go away. But of course not everything is always fair in love and war.
This read starts off in Durban, South African and then goes on to take the reader on a wold-wide tour of just how the force known as the USA takes over, destroys, saves and manipulates leaders and people of our world.
In most instances the USA 's actions are of course valid, I mean none of us if we could intervene, would stand by and watch an innocent 5 year old get killed by ruthless insurgents. But then there are those actions that can be seen as crimes of war, senseless, degrading and not the image any country wants to portray.
As stated you either love the Americans or you hate them, you can hate them all you want but at the end of the day show me the country that has had to go to war and did it all perfectly? There are none, every general or leader heck every soldier has done something that they think was right at the time but afterwards could see the light shine down onto their downright despicable actions.
Because I feel that it's vital for all readers to take a look at this book, I am going to stop right here and only add that this author has a unique voice, he sees the action , entrances the reader to the point where you might as well me the leader having to sit there and listen to the actions being justified or your image shattered, and the most important , this author makes you think and I mean deep long and stretched out thoughts.
And at the end of the day my dear reading friends , you too will come to the conclusion that the world is a far worst place then you might think, every country wants to be the ultimate one, but just because we say so doesn't make it right, or does it? We either go to war and walk away as the winner or the loser but what about all the in - between- tidbits that most simply try to hide?
