"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Why did the United States abruptly end the Gulf War? Haselkorn (Geopolitical Forum, Palo Alto, CA) contends that Saddam effectively blackmailed us by threatening to use his chemical and biological weapons of mass destruction, leaving President Bush with no choice. Haselkorn supports his conclusions with an in-depth (and occasionally repetitive) analysis and extensive documentation (over 100 pages of footnotes), tables, and appendixes. He cites numerous U.S. intelligence failures and even questions the truthfulness of Bush and Scowcroft. This book is bound to have its critics, but it is hard to disagree with Haselkorn's conclusion that in the future small extremist countries?North Korea, Libya, Iraq, and Iran?can use the threat of chemical/biological terrorism against the superpowers. A provocative and disturbing book; recommended for academic libraries and Middle East and military/international affairs collections.?Ruth K. Baacke, Whatcom Community Coll. Lib., Bellingham, WA
