Show Summary Details


This chapter examines U.S. President George W. Bush's war against Iraq. It explains that the invasion of Iraq in 2003 was preceded by a propaganda campaign monumental in its deceit and dishonesty, and argues that practically nothing which was said by the U.S. and British governments about Iraq turned out to be true. The chapter highlights Bush's claim that Iraq possessed chemical weapons and that it continues to develop weapons of mass destruction (WMD).
