Book Description

25 Jun 1999
This book begins by considering the 'pariah politics' practised by the United States in its efforts to denounce certain countries as 'pariahs' on the global scene. A brief profile is given of the American domestic and international human-rights record. Is the United States ethically equipped to act as a moral arbiter in such matters? The much-quoted Juvenal tag ('Who will guard the guardians?') is adapted: who will judge the judges?

After presenting relevant background to the Iraq Question (the changing role of Saddam, the genocidal sanctions regime, etc.), the book then describes as a detailed chronology the 1997-98 crisis between Iraq and the United States over the issue of the UN weapons inspections. The disputes - about the composition of the inspection teams and about the inspections of 'sensitive' Iraqi sites, especially the presidential palaces - are set in the context of the horrendous impact of the sanctions on the Iraqi civilian population.

Finally the negotiated settlement between UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan and the Iraqi government is outlined, with attention given also to the unsympathetic US response and the continuing tensions.
