    This confrontation was the pretext for Operation Desert Fox, Clinton’s mini Gulf War. Though the mass media continues to peddle the official line about inspectors being “expelled” from Iraq, in fact they were pulled out by Butler just days before bombs began to fall on Baghdad. on Iraq is an act of imperialist aggression • BY SELVA NEBBIA U.S.. President George Bush made it clear leading up to January 15 that Washington will do what it what it has been preparing to do since August: unleash a brutal, wide­ spread, and devastating imperialist war of aggression against the people of Iraq.

      We deplore the sacrifice of our soldiers and sailors, whose bravery deserves admiration even in an unjust war. We denounce the slaughter of the Filipinos as a needless horror. We protest against the extension of American sovereignty by Spanish methods. “We demand the immediate cessation of the war against liberty, begun by Spain and continued.   The order prepared American troops to become part of an international coalition in the war against Iraq that would be launched as Operation Desert Storm in January

      The Gulf War against Iraq wasn't really a war at all. It was a one-sided slaughter in a country that was no match for the massive armed might of the U.S. military and its many allies. It will be argued that the focus on either the factors supporting a preemptive war against an Iraq possessing weapons of mass destruction; or on criticisms against US imperialism and corporate interests, are not so much wrong, but simply reflect a limited political paradigm for understanding the motivations behind US foreign policy.

Essential reading is V. Lenin's pamphlet Socialism and War. A clear and powerful explanation. The struggle against fascist occupation led to a “people’s war from below”. My first book on the period, A People’s History of the Second World War, looked at when imperialist and people.

But only 6% of the munitions used against Iraq could be guided to a target. Over 94% were far less surgical during the day air war, which often saw sorties a day. The 20th century then ended with what Amin and El Kenz call “the second Gulf war – that ofwhich did not take place.” [7] Part of what prevented this Anglo-American bombing of Iraq (Operation Desert Fox) from developing into a broadened war was European unwillingness to go along with it.

Muslim Albania, this very minute, is attempting to enlarge its borders at Christian Macedonia's expense. Activists must learn the real history of liberals at war if a politically dynamic, broad, and successful opposition to a new slaughter in the desert is to be built.

During the last war against Iraq, many liberal groups including Sane-Freeze (now Peace Action) called for sanctions as an alternative to war (though even then it was clear that. Instead of locking in American global domination, the Iraq War precipitated the relative decline of American imperialism against its international and regional rivals.

China and other rising powers began to assert themselves in regions throughout the world. In the Middle East, the principal beneficiary of the Iraq War was, ironically Iran. Woods claims that Lenin “exaggerated” the Bolshevik defeatist program against the imperialist war.
