ABSTRACT
Chapter 9 of the book "Philosophical Perspectives on the "War on Terrorism"" is presented. It evaluates the U.S. occupation of Iraq to counter terrorism. The author reviews speeches of U.S. President George W. Bush and Vice President Richard Cheney and finds several erroneous and misleading assumptions, such as labeling fighters in Iraq as terrorists and linking Iraq to the September 11, 2011 terror attacks. He disagrees with the use of terror to fight terrorism and suggests using a more humane approach, more diplomacy and cultural sensitivity instead.
