The right book at the right time

In a 24/7 entertainment-driven news cycle, it's easy to forget what happened just two years ago. But Max Forte does not let us forget. He just completed the definitive work on the NATO bombing campaign and regime change operation in Libya, a campaign where the public was often told the inverse of the truth. In an era of "permanent war for permanent peace," Forte's revealing exposé highlights how rhetoric about "saving" lives abroad can lead to the opposite.

Now, in its first public launch in Hamilton, "Slouching Towards Sirte" can help prevent our minds from "slouching" during the next "humanitarian intervention" by the West in a sovereign country, perhaps Mali or Syria. Come to the McMaster University Medical Centre Room HS1A6 at 7:00 p.m. on June 18 for your chance to obtain a copy of this new Canadian book accompanied by Forte's explanation of why preventing Canada's participation in US foreign wars is more important than ever.
