    1. If you finish this book it will piss you off it will infuriate you and it should push you to want both bush's and Clinton charged with war crimes among other charges and given their just sentence. Reading the book shows you exactly why the Iraqi people despised the American occupation! If my kids died bc the US refused to let cancer medicine in or refused to allow parts in to fix water plants for clean water or indiscriminately dropped missiles on civilians I would do my damn best to kill as man [...]

    2. Reese Erlich was at Google to promote his book The Iran Agenda and though I was too late to get a copy of it, he had a few copies of this book for sale, so I got one for $10. It was published just before the U.S. went in Iraq, so the tone throughout is of impending war with still a fleeting hope for peace.

    5. As I was living in Australia trying to find a more balanced, or at least objective look at what was happening and what an "invasion" would mean. This book gave me a nice overview from an admittedly "left" perspective, but beyond bullet points and blind opposition. Very good exploration that a few more people should have read at that time.

    6. Covers how the media controls peoples' thinking and reactions along with the politicians using the media to persuade US people that Iraq War is good. Excellent section of arguments against Pres. Bush's claims

    7. it's not like it's wrong; it's just that how many anti-Iraq war texts did we need during the bush regime?
