Hassan A. El-Najjar

This book is critical of the way the Bush administration reacted to the 1990 Iraqi-Kuwaiti crisis and the way it conducted the 1991 Gulf War. It reveals the real story of the War in a way that counter-balances the pro-War accounts that have flooded the market, during the last ten years.

The chapters of the book reveal the real story of the Gulf War through a thorough investigation and analysis of the major issues and questions that led to the development of the Crisis and the War. Among these are the Iraqi claims of Kuwait; how Kuwaitis treated the majority of the population, immigrants; the background of inter-Arab conflict; the role of Western interests in the development of the conflict; how the 1990 Crisis developed; how the War decision was made, who made it, and when? why did the Bush administration reject all peace initiatives? Was the War excessive? Was the destruction of Iraq a goal in itself? What about Kuwaitis, were they innocent? What did they do to Palestinians after the War and why? Finally, what were the War results and consequences, for America and Arabia?
