ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the preparations of the United States government prior to its initiation of a war with Iraq in 2003. The causes of the war against Iraq as a response to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, a pre-emptive strike against Iraq as a nation with weapons of mass destruction, and the invasion as an effort to liberate the Iraqi people from the regime of Saddam Hussein are discussed. Details such as costs, timelines, and economic impact of the war are also considered. Comments are provided by Douglas Feith, the United States Undersecretary of Defense for Policy.
