  1. Blair: Bombing Iraq Better. Again

    First Published: 2014
    The authors critique the British media's coverage of a new essay by Tony Blair which attempts to justify the illegal invasion of Iraq in 2003.
  2. The Case for Staying in Iraq
    Against The Current vol. 122

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    I don't support an immediate U.S. withdrawal from Iraq, because I think it would probably make an already bad situation much worse. Of course, there's no guarantee that continuing the occupation will succeed in allowing some form of stability to take hold—particularly if our military forces simply "stay the course" of brutality evidenced in Fallujah, Abu Ghraib, and the training of Iraqi death squads. However, I believe it offers the best chance for the chaotic forces now at work in Iraq to settle, over time, into some type of a coherent nation.

  7. Empire of Lies and Torture
    Against The Current vol. 111

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2004
    The prohibition of torture in international conventions is absolute. There are no exceptions for so-called "ticking bombs," for "high-value terrorists" or "illegal enemy combatants" or similar improvised fictions—or for extraterritorial prison camps (Guantanamo) where the jailers exercise absolute power but somehow disclaim the legal responsibilities of "sovereignty."
  8. The Gulf Within: Canadian Arabs, Racism, & The Gulf War
    Resource Type: Book
    The Gulf Within documents the experiences of Arab and Muslim Canadians during the Gulf War. It's about the subtle and not-so-subtle anger and distrust other Canadians and institutions demonstrated towards these groups.

  10. The Illusion of Debate
    Consensus for the People that Matter

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2014
    A recent article in FAIR reviewed the findings of its latest study on the quality of political “debate” being aired on the mainstream networks. It studied the run-up to the military interventions in both Iraq and Syria. Perhaps the arbiters of the study intended to illustrate what we’ve learned since the fraudulent Iraq War of 2003. Well, it appears we’ve learned nothing.
  11. Imperial Crusades
    Iraq, Afghanistan and Yugoslavia: A Diary of Three Wars

    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2004
    Iraq was just one of three major imperial crusades in the decade after 1992, orchestrated by a new generation of American politicians, both Democrat and Republican, who backed pre-emptive strikes to overthrow unruly regimes in Yugoslavia and Afghanistan under the pretext of humanitarian intervention. Imperial Crusades chronicles the lies that are now returning almost daily to haunt the liars in Washington and London, the secret agendas and the under-reported carnage of these wars.

  14. Iraq: Guerrilla War in Sadr City
    Against The Current vol. 114

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2005
    In attacking first Najaf, then Tal Afar and Samarra, and finally tackling the center of Sunni resistance in Fallujah, the United States was seeking to reverse this process. But these attacks were not designed to restore order; they were, instead, intended to prevent the consolidation of a very orderly anti-American status quo in a constantly expanding set of "liberated" areas. Ironically, the American attacks in the Fall of 2004 underscore the larger contradictions in American policy in Iraq: that the chaos American leaders keep saying there are preventing will, in fact, occur only if U.S. military forces succeed in destroying these nascent city-states.
  15. Iraq's Torture by Sanctions
    Against The Current vol. 91

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2001
    An interview with Kathy Kelly. Kathy Kelly, organizer for Voices in the Wilderness, has been involved in the struggle around ending sanctions against Iraq for the past decade. David Finkel interviewed her for Against the Current in January 2001.
  16. Killing America's Kids 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    Why is the Secretary of Defense so angry at having the war photographed? Easy: Spin control. Spin is so very important in war these days. While America is only barely a democracy, still, if the public, the great sleeping, acquiescent, ignorant beast, ever gets really upset, the war ends. The Pentagon is acutely aware of this.
  17. Michael Berg for U.S. Congress in Delaware: A Voice Against War
    Against The Current vol. 124

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    On June 8 Americans awoke to the news that the U.S. military in Iraq had killed Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi, alleged leader of Al-Qaeda in Iraq. In the midst of press coverage that cravenly accepted government claims that this was, once again, a turning point in the war, one voice in the mass media dramatically countered government claims - that of Michael Berg, Green Party candidate for Delaware's seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.
  18. On Oil and Quicksand

    Resource Type: Article
