Book Review: USAma

Is USA the world’s largest terrorist?

Author: Amit Bagaria

Genre: Non-fiction

Blurb: NO! This is NOT a book about Usama bin Ladin (aka Osama bin Laden). Though he was considered the world’s No.1 terrorist for nearly 10 years, bin Laden was responsible for the deaths of less than 6000 people.
The protagonist in this book is responsible for the deaths of at least 7.3 million people since World War II, not including an estimated 177,000 people killed in the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombings.
In this spine-chilling book, Amit Bagaria takes us through an extraordinary journey of illegal/immoral acts carried out by Unjust Satan America (USA) against 82 sovereign nations, which are mostly unknown to the average reader even within USA. He tries to show us how, in one way or the other, USA has bullied its way to global dominance – interfering in our day to day lives, working perhaps for the benefit of only its super powerful Military Industrial Complex – which he describes in detail.
“USAma” is a term Bagaria has coined to describe USA. Either through drones or airstrikes, surgical strikes or full-scale military invasions, USAma has created havoc in more than half the world, he says. In other countries, different types of weapons have been used – from porn films to poison, from blackmailing to torture, from fake news to fake public protests – all through CIA.
Even the most educated amongst us have been made to believe that USA is justified – as the global policeman – in helping weaker nations fight evil, whether in the form of Communism or Islamism. This is despite the fact that, to serve its own selfish purposes, USA has supported some of the most brutal dictators, helped in the establishment of fundamentalist Islamic regimes, and even supported Communist regimes in some cases. THAT is the power of American propaganda.

My Review: As soon as I read the title and the blurb of the book, I chose it for reading and reviewing, as I was sure, the book is gonna be very informative.

Title and cover both suits each other. The cover reflects the content inside. However, I found that the effect given on the book cover are cartoonish, it could be animated.

I was already thinking that how can USA be responsible for such a big issue, but then the author really forced me to rethink on this.

The author really did very hard work and intense research to write this book, his efforts are clearly visible.

Narration style and language is simple. I loved that the author gave the vocabulary before the main chapters. And it was very convenient that reader can read any chapter he/she likes to read first, there was no boundation of reading it by sequence. Each chapter tells a lot about the whole world.

It’s said about USA that it has no permanent friends or enemy, it has it’s personal interests. And after reading the book this saying seems to be very very perfect on USA. The data in every chapter is presented in such a way that the book could hold reader’s interest.

I recommend the book to those who take interest in world politics.

Conclusion: The book helped my developing mind in knowing more about the world politics.

Star Rating: 5/5

मुस्कुराहट

आज
राह में चलते हुए
कुछ दो-चार लोग मिले।
नजरें एक हुईं, तो मुस्कुराएँ-
क्योंकि वे परिचित थे।
तब प्रयत्न मैंने भी किया
जबरन मुस्कुराने का।
किन्तु,
नहीं फैल पाईं
होंठों की कोरें,
इस गाल से उस गाल तक।
क्योंकि नहीं आया था
कोई आदेश मस्तिष्क से-
मुस्कुराने का।
क्योंकि व्यस्त था मस्तिष्क
अश्रुओं का हिसाब लगाने में,
या जीवन के अपार दुःख का
मूल ख़ोज पाने में।
या कदाचित-
उलझे रिश्तों की गाँठें सुलझाने में।
मस्तिष्क की इस व्यस्तता के कारण
अकड़ गईं हैं
माँसपेशियाँ
होंठों और गालों की।
और इस प्रकार
बीत गया एक और दिन
बिना मुस्कुराहट के…
