It refers to the intention of the U.S. government to invade Iraq, alleged for having a link between Al-Qaeda and hiding weapons of mass destruction. It also notes the results of the enforcement of the preventive-defense, which garnered global condemnation as it had caused suffering, death and destruction in Iraq.
