- War Against Iraq: Converging U.S. and Israeli Agendas by Ronald Bleier
"War Against Iraq" argues that the Bush administrations war against Iraq is motivated by the twin agendas of supporting Israeli dominance in the Middle East and the Bush administration's agenda for permanent war. Highly placed hawks like Cheney, Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz have for years advocated regime change in Iraq as a way of securing their militaristic program by means of advancing Israels regional goals.
The article argues that the war against Iraq is NOT primarily a war for oil because such a war, however misguided and immoral, would have the fundamentally rational goal of securing coveted resources. Rather the war against Iraq is ideologically propelled by a messianic belief in Americas mission. Similarly this is not a war in the service of imperialism which would otherwise use more circumspect, less aggressive means, but is rather a race toward world war and Armageddon.
