ALL wars are full of mistakes. The greater tragedy is men pay with their lives. The author in his insatiable Bush derangement syndrome lists mistakes upon mistakes with no explanation why they occured, the conditions/that contributed to them or how toavoid them in the future. In short, long on facts and short on analysis. Not recommended for the individual trying to understand history or avoid mistakes. Absolute must read for those interested in scoring political points and sounding intelligent while bashing another party or individual.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A poor attempt at distracting from the facts.
Fiasco misses because it tries to compare the Iraq War to other recent conventional wars. A war such as this has never been fought before, it requires new rules and has different victory conditions. This is why this title will never be suitable for a true military history of the Iraq War. If you go by conventional terms, we defeated the Iraq army and occupied Baghdad in record time. What came after was seperate from the initial operations. The author simply does not understand this. Since other reviewers gave thier personal feelings on the issue, here is mine. This war has been prolonged on purpose. Anti-US terrorists are now halfway across the world fighting trained soldiers instead of blowing up women and children in the United States. I think that was our current administration's plan from the beginning and that is why it is a success. That is also why this book fails - it judges the war in a theater outside of its intended purpose. Holding true to its' political bias, it also tries to illustrate that this war belongs solely to Bush's regime, which is simply a lie. Many notable democrats and others not only supported the war but also voted for it to take place. It will take more facts and less of the same old Anti-Bush lies and propaganda from the media and liberal authors that is crowding the literary world for a book like this to be a success.
