Overview

1. There is no basis for war. 2. Removing Saddam Hussein is pointless given the political environment in Iraq. If the first basis is removed (i.e., reintroduction of arms inspectors) the second will become Team Bush's focus. The resulting conflict will not be a televised in-and-out affair like the Persian Gulf War; there will be heavy casualties on both sides, a complete destabilization of the Middle East, and a terrible backlash of terrorist attacks on the U.S.--exactly the kind of Islam vs. the West that al-Qaeda wants.

In this shocking expos�, William Rivers Pitt and former U.N. weapons inspector Scott Ritter dismantle the myths surrounding Iraq�s present weapons capabilities to uncover the neo-conservative forces behind the White House�s push for war on Iraq.

During the seven years that U.N. weapons inspections took place in Iraq, Ritter and other inspectors confirmed that Saddam Hussein�s chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons programs had been effectively destroyed. This fact undermines the Bush administration�s false premise for waging war on Iraq.

Pitt and Ritter go on to explore the White House�s premise for war, demonstrating among many startling revelations, the utter lack of any plausible link between Saddam Hussein and al-Qaeda. We learn that Osama bin Laden is in agreement with the Bush administration, and has called for the death of Saddam Hussein. Pitt and Ritter highlight the absurdity of Team Bush�s dual aim of bringing down Hussein and forcing democracy on a nation that has been divided for centuries. Ritter enumerates the many ways in which it is impossible for Iraq to pose a credible threat. WAR ON IRAQ closes with a stark forecast for American troops if a ground war ensues and urges the White House to seek a diplomatic solution before it is too late.
