The Hidden Invasion of Iraq PDF Print E-mail

A book with a new angle on the conflict by Paulo Casaca

Five years, hundreds of thousands of lost lives, five million plus displaced, in spite of the considerable amount of literature, the fundamental questions remain to be answered.

Yet, as the author argues, the right questions have not been yet rightly equated, as the fact that behind the formal invasion of Iraq a much more sinister invasion took place has been underplayed by most of the observers.

This book argues that most of the existing analyses overemphasize the responsibilities of the political establishment that took the decision to invade Iraq, its tendency to substitute crude military power for informed political action, the operational severe shortcomings of the occupation plans or its blunt ignorance on the basics of the region.
