We believe no more in Bonaparte's fighting merely for the liberties of the seas, than in Great Britain's fighting for the liberties of mankind. The object is the same, to draw to themselves the power, the wealth and the resources of other nations.

Iraq: A Just War?


Our position is that whatever grievances a nation may have, however objectionable it finds the status quo, aggressive warfare is an illegal means for settling those grievances or for altering those conditions.
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Robert Houghwout Jackson
(from his opening statement to the Nuremberg tribunal)

The American public is sleep-walking to a war with Iraq that it has been told is inevitable, and most of the U.S. mass media have sent their brains on holiday...
Gwynne Dyer (Toronto Star, 1 August 2002)

Few of us can easily surrender our belief that society must somehow make sense. The thought that the State has lost its mind and is punishing so many innocent people is intolerable. And so the evidence has to be internally denied.
Arthur Miller

If people aren't already thinking about the consequences of this war for the people of the entire region then I hope they will start.
Rachel Corrie (from an e-mail to her parents, 7 February 2003)

Those who are thinking about it oppose it.
Gwynne Dyer (Royal Roads, 28 October 2002)

For war and peace in general (conduct of war, military defence, peacekeeping and peacemaking, the peace movement, weapons of mass destruction, etc.), see Global Peace and Security; for human rights abuses in Iraq, see Torture and the Death Penalty and War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity, above, and (for occupied Iraq) The Humanitarian Crisis in Iraq, below.

The Humanitarian Crisis in Iraq


The Iraqis will pay a horrible price to teach the U.S. a lesson in arrogance.
Gwynne Dyer (Royal Roads, 28 October 2002)

Our commitment to the post-Saddam humanitarian effort will be total. We shall help Iraq move towards democracy. And put the money from Iraqi oil in a UN trust fund so that it benefits Iraq and no-one else.
Prime Minister Tony Blair (20 March 2003)
