Ontario late last year. 75 min.
Rock star Bono of U2 has called American political activist Noam Chomsky
a rebel without a pause, the Elvis of academia. At 74, this

As hundreds of thousands of American soldiers bear down upon the regime
of Saddam Hussein, it is hard to imagine another era, not so long ago,
when the Americans and Iraqis were allies. In those days, they had a
mutual enemy: Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran. The Iraqis had long-standing
disputes with Iran and the Americans were still smarting over the seizure
of American hostages in 1979. Ronald Reagan sent a special envoy to
forge an alliance. His name was Donald Rumsfeld. Twenty years ago, each
side had something the other needed. The Americans wanted an ally in
the Middle East and Iraq needed food, money and military supplies.
