Publisher's Summary

Washington Bullets is written in the best traditions of Marxist journalism and history-writing. It is a book of fluent stories, full of detail about US imperialism, but never letting the minutiae obscure the larger political point. It is a book that could easily have been a song of despair - a lament of lost causes; it is, after all, a roll call of butchers and assassins; of plots against people's movements and governments; of the assassinations of socialists, Marxists, communists all over the Third World by the country where liberty is a statue.

Despite all this, Washington Bullets is a book about possibilities, about hope, about genuine heroes. One such is Thomas Sankara of Burkina Faso - also assassinated - who said: "You cannot carry out fundamental change without a certain amount of madness. In this case, it comes from nonconformity, the courage to turn your back on the old formulas, the courage to invent the future. It took the madmen of yesterday for us to be able to act with extreme clarity today. I want to be one of those madmen. We must dare to invent the future."

Washington Bullets is a book infused with this madness, the madness that dares to invent the future.

High Speed Tour through Recent History

It is an excellent book telling about some of the most empire's crimes.. Sadly, the author "censured and deleted" the history of suffering and struggling of the brave Nicaraguan who have defied the US and Europe interventions for more than 200 years.

Great book on US foreign policy

Great Book on US foreign policy that gives an honest account on the US’s role in the global economy and is a succinct history of US foreign intervention and imperialism

Everybody should listen to this great book.

I loved the book which was well narrated. A great eye opener on the treatment of the third world by the west.

How did it avoid the CIA?

Want to find the truth about America's war against all who want freedom to live in their own countries. Read this book. The puppet Bolsanaro rules unchecked with the Amazon ablaze and capitalism rampantly sucking dry the largest state of Brazil.
