      1. This book reveals the common geopolitical interests behind the US and NATO’s so-called ‘humanitarian interventions’ post-1989, and suggests that the ‘noble’ missions in Serbia and Kosovo paved the way for the full scale invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq and for the naming of ‘rouge states’ as possible future targets, laying the groundwork for an aggressively militarized and eager-to-deploy US military. See the postscript ‘Perpetual War,’ which reflects on the future of conflict after 9/11.
