Summary "On September 11, 2001, the United States of America was surprised by deadly terrorist attacks fueled by hatred for the United States that Americans could not understand. Why would anyone want to attack a peace-loving democracy not interested in war?" "This book is written to help Americans understand how people in other parts of the world are impacted by a United States' foreign policy that often seems arbitrary, self-serving, and inconsistent with the ideals of democracy. The author is past president of the Seychelles, neighbor to Diego Garcia from which many of the airstrikes against the Taliban in Afghanistan were launched. His comments are informative and constructive for anyone interested in creating a better and more coherent U.S. foreign policy that will lead to a more peaceful world and prevent a recurrence of terrorist attacks on America."--BOOK JACKET
