Written in the compact style of a lawyer, Borden lays out a compelling case for the war in Iraq being a necessary one. Reaching back to the Carter doctrine, he ably argues that Bush’s actions, and President Clinton’s, were simply extensions of this well-known doctrine. Jimmy Carter declared that the free flow of oil was critical to our nation and its economic survival and we, as a country, would do what is necessary to ensure it....The book is highly recommended to those who are tired of having to accept the conventional wisdom that has been crafted over the years and want something solid with which to fire back. Arthur Borden’s “A Better Country” delivers the necessary ammo. (McQ The Qando Blog: Http://Www.Qando.Net/Details.Aspx?Entry=9741
)A Better Country
is concise and compelling. It sets the record straight on the threat of Saddam's regime and on the U.S. decision to invade Iraq. It cuts through the confusions of the war debate, and it will help to overcome the deep and disabling divisions in America's civic life. This is essential reading for policy analysts, politicians, and the general public--indeed for all of us who want to restore the integrity of American politics. (Dr. Herbert London)
