'This is the clearest and most persuasive explanation
of the reasons not to go to war with Iraq that anyone
could wish for. Written with great clarity and precision,
WAR PLAN IRAQ exposes the extraordinary hypocrisy
and double-dealing which characterises the US march
George Monbiot, author of Captive State: The Corporate
Takeover of Britain
'Most Iraqis, whether inside Iraq or in exile feel
that the war on Iraq is immoral and illegal. WAR PLAN
IRAQ proves that opposing the war does not mean supporting
Saddam's regime. Opposing the war means supporting
the Iraqi people. 'Impressive documentation, clear
analysis and convincing arguments against the US-led
war on the Iraqi people: Milan Rai addresses issues
facing Iraqis in relation to the drive for war with
rare insight into Iraqi society. Crucially, he also
covers the link between the war on Iraq and the Nekba
in Palestine, the fate of the Kurdish people, and
relations with Turkey, Iran and the Arab world.'
Haifa Zangana, Iraqi writer in exile and member of
Act Together: Women against sanctions and war on Iraq
'It is vitally important to get across to the British
people that Trident is being aimed at what appears
to be a non-nuclear country, and that there are nonviolent
ways of dealing with Iraq's suspected weapons of mass
destruction. WAR PLAN IRAQ is a valuable contribution
to these efforts.'
Carol Naughton, Chair of CND
'This excellent book reveals the extent of the
injustices perpetrated against the Iraqi people.'
Alice Mahon MP
'This book is an excellent weapon for all those
opposed to Bush's war. Compulsory reading for every
'A remarkably thorough account, and required reading
for anyone concerned about the risk of war.' Paul
Rogers, Professor of Peace Studies, Bradford University
'A timely and important book.'
Hilary Wainwright, Red Pepper
'The most practical tool for arguing against the
war - the clarity is astounding.'

Iraq brings together the arguments against war on
Iraq. 240 pages packed full of clear and hard-hitting
information, War Plan Iraq exposes the way in which
the US destroyed UNSCOM and is undermining UNMOVIC,
and explodes the false claims made about Iraq's weapons
of mass destruction.
