ABSTRACT
Chapter 18 of the book "Philosophical Perspectives on the "War on Terrorism"" is presented. The author notes the U.S. has been involved in wars of intervention supposedly for humanitarian reasons in defense of human rights. He describes these wars as neo-colonial because they imposed internal control and dependency on the countries supposed to be helped. Instead of dependency and exploitation, he suggests sharing of democratic structures and practices with the colonized. He believes interventions solely to address human rights concerns are possible.
