Let's face it. Gitlin today has been given status because he represents
Establishment views and can give them credibility thanks to his SDS background.
On Kosovo, read the on-the-spot article by Christian Parenti in the current issue
of the San Francisco Bay Guardian, a freebie weekly with larger circulation than the
major dailies. It has won the kind of standing that compels city officials to write
letters to the editor to defend themselves against its exposes. It is www.sfbg.com.
One should also read the closing three pages of my Saying No To Power, for the view
that the war's purpose was to establish the closest possible U.S. land forces base to
Caspian oil; that its consequence has been to stimulate the founding of an EU
military force independent of NATO and capable, down the road, of confronting the
U.S., while the unipolar world before Kosovo has now become one in which this country
may face the combination of China, India, and Russia.
