Format: Hardcover
Here's an interesting theory for why Bush attacked Iraq. He did so in order to violate international law. This is what Eric Zuesse argues in "Iraq War, the Truth," a 188-page book from Delphic Press.

The book is better than its title or its preface. Zuesse makes a case that Bush's central motivation in launching this war was to render the United Nations and the International Criminal Court powerless. Bush didn't attack and occupy Iraq in order to eliminate weapons that he already knew didn't exist. And looting the oil and other resources (and the US Treasury) for corporate cronies was a side benefit. Attacking in violation of international law, and using napalm and depleted uranium in the attack, was not a regrettable circumstance to Bush. He would not have preferred to have UN backing, because his primary enemy was never Saddam Hussein; it was the United Nations. What about "liberating the Iraqis"? Bush believed that one. He didn't expect the Iraqis to continue resisting. But that wasn't why he started the war.

All right, but why would someone waste tens of thousands of lives and hundreds of billions of dollars getting into a predictable mess merely for the thrill of violating a law? Because this was no ordinary thrill for our born again White House occupant. This was a holy thrill. This was paying Jesus back for saving W from alcohol and drugs. This was the culmination of a fundamentalist Christian crusade on behalf of God's law in opposition to merely human law. This war has been building steadily since the founding of the John Birch Society. This is a war with God on Bush's side, fought for a righteous and holy American empire.

In order to respond to this book and this review, I need to first stop shaking my head and stop sighing. I just spent 40 minutes up at the bookstore reading this book just for the mental exercise. What a bunch of absolute baloney. The mere fact that he calls it the "truth" is funny as well. I could sit here and poke holes in what I read for hours on end. But after reading the other "review" here I didn't even feel like wasting my time. So Bush did all this to impress Jesus! HAhah. Now c'mon ! You can't possibly believe yourself. Has pot really become that bad for your brain cells? It's a shame that wacky professors (mr. Nash anyone) can peddle this joke as a book and with a straight face. I noticed the last time he got an award was 1982, that must have been before Reagan and the borg attempted to have him assimilated. If you buy it, make sure to put tin foil on your head so the bush administration can't read your mind from their secret HQ on the planet Ridiculon. Pathetic.

Brutally honest and insightful? My God, man, what drugs are you on? This book is a perfect example of Freedom of the Press run completely amuck. One thing that our founding fathers should have written -- Freedom to do what you want but don't be an idiot suckered into ultra-extreme leftist thinking and especially don't publish books written in that brainwashed frame of mind!!!!
