I got to know Michael Barker, the author of this article, when we were 
both focused on exposing "humanitarian interventions" in Yugoslavia. At 
the time, much of what I wrote dovetailed with the sort of article found 
on DissidentVoice, Information Clearing House, et al.

I veered sharply from this outlook after Putin invaded Chechnya and lost 
track of Michael Barker, who I had a great deal of respect and even 
affection for at the time. After earning a PhD, he decided to turn his 
back on academia since he saw it as a corrupt arm of the capitalist 
system despite liberal pretensions.

Out of the blue, he has written an article that is both politically 
powerful and deeply researched. This is one of the most important 
articles you will read in CounterPunch in this or any other year.
