American Transgressive Interventions: The Question of Genocide
Model, David
College Quarterly, v10 n4 p1-8 Fall 2007
This author, a teacher of political science and liberal studies, states his belief that challenging students to examine and analyze radical ideas develops their capacity to think clearly and skeptically. Following in this spirit, this essay examines the discrepancy between the stated objectives of American foreign policy and its practice. The author contends that this discrepancy is best exemplified by the apogee of war crimes: genocide. In support of his belief, he presents an analysis of two cases: Iraq and East Timor. The former is an example of direct guilt, the latter of complicity.
