Item description for Where to Invade Next by Stephen Elliott...

On February 27, 2007, during an interview with Amy Goodman, General Wesley Clark described a 2002 Pentagon conversation in which he was told that America was planning to invade Iraq. From the same source, he learned of a classified memorandum listing six other countries the United States intended to "take out" over the next five years. Most of us will never get to see this memo, but we know it exists.

Now, editor Stephen Elliott, authors Jason Roberts, Eric Martin, and Andrew Altschul, and a team of twenty researchers have re-created this document for the present day. Where to Invade Next contains seven essays, 100 percent factual, laying out in stark detail how the arguments for invasion could be made. A biting look at the role of propaganda in foreign policy, this book outlines exactly how our leaders might make the case for war.

Reviews - What do customers think about Where to Invade Next?

A New Kind of Satire  Apr 18, 2008
Here's what I think:
In satire, the writer professes to approve the very thing he or she wishes to attack. The satirist dos so by means of irony: there is discordance between what is said and what is meant. The thing about Where To Invade Next is that it's so convincing in its approval that it hard to tell what is actually meant. There are none of the usual clues to reassure the reader of the writer's true intent. When you read The Onion, you know that they don't really mean anything they say. Where To Invade Next does not have this literary wink. There is no reassuring message that says "We are actually opposed to invasion. This is just a joke."

This is a sort of raw satire, satire stripped of its disclaimers, and it landed on me like a bomb. For an evening I was plunged into the mind of a player operating at the highest levels of world politics. It is a mind burning with terrifying paranoia, genuine care twisted into hate.

This is a different kind of satire. It does not merely mock abusive and violent persons, it takes you inside their minds. In this way it is very effective. Unless, of course, McSweeney's really has gone over to the neo-cons. You just can't tell.
Informative but not to be taken seriously  Mar 25, 2008
I picked this up at the International Spy Museum in Washington D.C. Basically what the book entails are snapshots of seven different countries (Iran, Pakistan, Uzbekistan, Venezuela, Syria, Sudan,and North Korea) that consist of government, why they are a threat to the United States, and how they can be eliminated as a threat. While very informative, I very seriously doubt it is to be taken seriously. At 82 pages, it's a very quick read.
