I read about John Perkins', 'Confession of an Economic Hitman' on the latest issue of the mag, 'Over the Edge'. On Sunday afternoon, I went to MPH Subang Jaya to look for this book. I couldn't find it. I guess it's not here yet. But I would really love to get my hand on this one. So, this conspiracy thing is for real after all. The events and happenings of our world is indeed shaped by the elites within the US government and powerful US-sponsored organizations and rich corporations of America.
I got the book at Kinokuniya, KLCC 2 days ago.
What is an Economic Hitman? Here's what the author said;
JOHN PERKINS: Basically what we (Economic Hitmen) were trained to do and what our job is to do is to build up the American empire. To bring -- to create situations where as many resources as possible flow into this country, to our corporations, and our government, and in fact we’ve been very successful. We’ve built the largest empire in the history of the world. It's been done over the last 50 years since World War II with very little military might, actually. It's only in rare instances like Iraq where the military comes in as a last resort. This empire, unlike any other in the history of the world, has been built primarily through economic manipulation, through cheating, through fraud, through seducing people into our way of life, through the economic hit men. I was very much a part of that.

About the author : John Perkins
Do you remember how the previous chairman of Proton, the late Tan Sri Yahya Ahmad died in a fiery helicopter crash with his wife?
Makes you wonder, does it not?
Did you say jackal?
Ugh, let's eat nasi-lemak and down it with teh-tarik kurang manis.
Keep your head-down, you don't want any trouble, do you?
