    This book sucks If only O'Rourke was as witty and important as he apparently thinks he is This is the problem with the writingpublishing industry people think they have something important to say and bam there goes a forest

With his latest national best seller Peace Kills PJ O'Rourke casts his ever shrewd and mordant eye on America's latest adventures in warfare Imperialism has never been funTo unravel the mysteries of war O'Rourke first visits Kosovo Wherever there's injustice oppression and suffering America will show up six months later and bomb the country next to where it's happening He travels.
