A Crime against Humanity

Wolfgang Haug


Abstract: The German red-green coalition has declared unlimited solidarity with the US-government in its response to the attack on the World Trade Center in New York City. Still few questions have been raised by the mainstream media, and any "inopportune" comments that have worked their way into the press questioning the legitimacy of the response have been declared scandalous. This article argues that the time may have come  to deal with long-term developments and potential consequences of today's politics and policies and perhaps it may even be possible for us to begin to understand what is going on - a possibility that should not be ignored out of an archaic thirst for revenge.
