By Jacques R. Pauwels, historian, political scientist, author of The Myth of the Good War: America in the Second World War (James Lorimer, Toronto, 2002). Together with personalities like Ramsey Clark, Michael Parenti, William Blum, Robert Weil, Michel Collon, Peter Franssen and many others, he signed “The International Appeal against US-War”.
