Then, Fred Wilcox of Ithaca College will comment on his agreements and disagreements with Halliday's analysis. We'll conclude with an excerpt of a talk by Noam Chomsky examining the credibility of US government justifications for the decade long war against Iraq.
The Bush administration has declared 2002 another year of war, and plans to mount attacks on more oil producing nations under the rubric of combating terrorism. High on the list of possible enemies is Iraq, where the current president's father's administration, followed by the Clinton administration, pursued a similar course. We explore US policy toward Iraq, both its stated and unstated motivations.
