U.S. Power in Iraq and Beyond

According to "Full Spectrum Dominance: U.S. Power in Iraq and Beyond," rarely in modern history has a war been as blatantly and persistently forecast as the United State's impending on Iraq. Rahul Mahajan claims that this upcoming war is the end result of a strategy that the US began with the Gulf War, in which Iraq became a shunned state and an everlasting objective.

Mahajan says the Bush administration's course of action in regards to Iraq, following the terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001, is not about the fight against terrorists or even about getting control of weapons of mass destruction. Rather, he claims, it is about strengthening the United States' hold on oil resources and power in the Middle East.

In spite of the potential for increased violence that an attack on Iraq would likely incur and in spite of the possibility of more strikes by terrorists, the belief of the Bush administration is that violence is the only alternative. Mahajan goes beyond George W. Bush's foolishly labeled "Axis of Evil" and takes a hard look at this scenario. He offers a thorough investigation into the misconceptions, the facts and the background in the quest for the United States starting a war in Iraq.
