At the outset of the 1991 Gulf War, U.S. leaders resolved that ‘Iraqis will pay the price,” so long as Saddam Hussein remained in power. This book, written in 2002, makes chillingly clear just how terrible that price has been. Saddam was caught by surprise by the 1991 allied attack; his preparations after September 11 showed that lessons had been learnt. In a prologue added to this ed., the authors analyze Saddam’s preparations (prior to the invasion of Iraq in 2003) &, the terrifying consequences of a military invasion of Iraq. This chilling tale of barbarity & betrayal documents the lethal mix of U.S. cynicism & incompetence that established Saddam Hussein as the bully of the Gulf, encouraged him to invade Iran & Kuwait, & then allowed him to stay in power.
