24,90 €
What are the facts that make it possible to affirm that the Islamic State seeks to create a civil war in France; that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons; that Vladimir Putin tries to destabilize our democracies; that terrorism has struck France, not for what it does, but for what it is; that the genocide in Darfur claimed 400,000 victims?... Literally none, but these assertions are enough to establish the foreign policy of Western countries. The author, a former agent of the Swiss strategic intelligence service, thus reviews the main contemporary conflicts, which Western countries have managed with fake news, over the past thirty years.
