Iraq: Analysis, Argument, Voices

Analysis

A LONG OR A SHORT WAR?

post-Saddam? As George W. Bush and Tony Blair meet, ARTHUR HELTON and GIL
LOESCHER reveal different agendas at work.

Argument

IRAQ: A WAR LIKE NO OTHER
This is a war for US power not human rights and democracy. All the more reason
to defend the principle of humanitarian intervention, says MARY KALDOR.

THE TRUE COURSE
PETER HAIN, a British government minister, on why he believes firmly that
destroying the Saddam regime is legitimate.

THE WAR IS RIGHT
The long years of Saddam's genocidal rule are evidence enough that the war is
just, says Member of the European Parliament EMMA NICHOLSON.

THE CHOICE FOR PROTESTORS: ANTI-WAR OR PEACE?
War reshapes the ground of argument. Being 'anti' is no longer enough. MARTIN
SHAW challenges.

BEYOND PROTEST?
The vibrant articulacy of anti-war protest carries its own lesson: democracy is
attitude not opinion, inherently plural, conversation not weapon of power, says
ROSEMARY BECHLER.
