Targeting Iraq: Sanctions & Bombing in US Policy

£5.99

Product description

"The US had long been plagued by the stubborn survival of Saddam Hussein. Years of sanctions, bombings, coup attempts and internal rebellions had failed to topple the Iraqi dictator, but the terrorist attacks of 11th September 2001 gave fresh impetus to Washington's objective of regime change in Iraq. In this book, Geoff Simons describes the US conflicts with Iraq in the broad context of regional politics and American objectives. He profiles the long American war on Iraq with a focus on the sanctions regime, the bombing campaign, US manipulation of the UN, the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, the pro-Iraq Arab consensus and how Washington plans to overthrow the Saddam regime. Such factors, explored in detail, graphically illustrate the impact of US policy on the international stage."

Book in very good condition.
