"In 1991, the Soviet Union simply disappeared and the Cold War was officially over, but as Chal quickly noted, no 'peace dividend' followed. The American Raj simply sailed blissfully on as if nothing whatsoever had happened. This caught Chal’s attention, along with what he later came to call 'the American empire of bases' and the full-scale garrisoning of the planet that went with it. For the rest of his life he would focus his energies on the subject of American militarism, an ever more bloated military-industrial complex, and of course the growing power of the Pentagon, which in a weird sense functioned as an American MITI."
