9780908011995: Howard's War (Scribe Short Books)

A concise critique of the justifications used to support Australia's participation in the 2003 war against Iraq is set forth in this work. It inspects Prime Minister John Howard's motivation for entering a war that is contrary to Australia's interests and explores the apparent consequences of this decision on its citizens. Among the topics addressed is how Australia's involvement eliminated a profitable trading partner and ratcheted up the hostilities against Australia among Iraq's Muslim neighbors and in countries that would otherwise have paid little attention. The prime minister's zealous appeasement of Washington and London and his ensuing adoption of U.S. foreign policy are also scrutinized.
