The Iraq Quagmire: The Price of Imperial Arrogance


T The Iraq Quagmire: The Price of Imperial Arrogance is a bold statement about US failures in Iraq. The authors take the view that apart from deposing and killing Saddam Hussein, there is no way the Iraq War can be considered a success.

While holding the Bush administration and its British ally responsible for the present quagmire, the book is also very critical of the Democratic leadership in Congress -- accusing it if half-baked opposition to the war. In a simple, yet captivating analysis, the authors explore American Imperialism, questioning whether the country can survive the resource wars. This is a must read for people on both sides of the Iraq debate; a fresh perspective on the hottest issue of the day.
