ABSTRACT
An interview with Richard Haass, who served as principal adviser to Colin Powell from 2001 to 2003 and as special assistant to former U.S. President George H. W. Bush from 1989 to 2003, is presented. When asked about his book "War of Necessity, War of Choice," he states that he wrote the book because he believes that the two Iraq wars turned out to be two of the defining moments of this era of history. He notes that a war of necessity is a war fought for vital interests while a war of choice occurs when the interests are less than vital.
