“More than a rational calculation of interests takes us to war. People go to war because of how they see, perceive, picture, imagine and speak of others; that is, how they construct the difference of others as well as the sameness of themselves through representation”

James Der Derian, 2002

“I’m running out of demons. I’m down to Kim Il-sung and Castro.”

Colin Powell, then Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff, 1999
