4.0 étoiles sur 5 The book by which history will be decided 27 juillet 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Scott Ritter uses effective and compelling prose in this well-written book to dismantle Bush's justifications for war. Harnessing his considerable knowledge of Iraq's WMD programs and capabilites, Ritter proves himself to be perhaps the most objective, qualified American to speak to whether Iraq was a legitimate threat or not, as well as a surprisingly strong author.
Because I was aware of the points Ritter was articulating in the months leading up to war, the fact that no Weapons of Mass Destruction ever turned up has been no surprise to me. The one issue that had continued to confuse me was the apparent "flip flop" that Ritter seemed to make between 1998 (when he implied Iraq WAS a threat) and now. Ritter deals with this issue head-on, detailing the differences (from an inspector's perspective) between a technical threat, and a practical one.
Ritter's wordsmithing is thankfully sharp, making the inherently-complex subject matter highly readable. A couple of chapters dealing with the background to the conflict slow the pace slightly, and Ritter's late-chapter comparison of Bush to Hitler's[] ambition strikes me as overkill in an otherwise level-headed analysis.
Nonetheless, this book is highly recommended to anyone on either side of the ideological aisle who wishes to hear from an informed source on the issue of Iraq's WMD.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Like him or no, Ritter's the only one whos been right so far 24 juillet 2003
Par Ronald Fitzgerald - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I was expecting a much more systematic analysis of Iraq's WMDs and the Bush administrations misrepresentation of their threat and/or existence. You will find a better analysis of this in Ritter's short interview book "War on Iraq." I highly encourage people to buy Ritter's books (Frontier Justice, War on Iraq, Endgame), even though his literary skills are mediocre and he has apparently been arrested for some immoral internet activities. So far though, he has been the only expert to have been right about the MIA WMD. The stockpiles repeatedly cited by both Clinton and Bush II were produced before 1991. By now, if they hadnt already been destroyed by Saddam, they would have degraded to the point of worthlessness.
The chances that Iraq had reconstituted any viable weapons program since inspectors left is a near fantasy. Ritter says the inspectors achieved a high level of disarmament: 90-95% of the actual weapons and 100% of the production capacity. This position has been seconded by former UNSCOM officials like Rolf Ekeus. Saddam's half-brother and defector Hussein Kamel also testified to the UN that he personally ordered the destruction of Iraq's WMD, which is what all high level Iraqis in custody have been telling US military officials.
So read these books. Inform yourself. When someone says to you "but Saddam did have the anthrax...we know he did." Tell them, "yes, he did, but the kind of anthrax the Iraqis made has a shelf life of 3 to 5 years. It was produced before 1991. You do the math." You are guaranteed to sound smarter than the past 2 presidents. I would also encourage people to bring the issue of the limited shelf-lives of Chem-Bio Weapons to their representatives, since they seem clueless as to the science of WMD. For more on this go to FAS.org
Also, if you're interested in further inaccuracies about the supposed threat posed by Saddam (and there are far more that 16 words), go to GLOBALPOLICY.org (the direct link doesnt work sometimes, use a search engine) They have archived news reports concerning the Iraq War that highlight flagrant inaccuracies being parroted by the Bush administration officials (and yes Clinton too). Go to the Iraq Crisis link on the mainpage.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Tough Presentation, Eye on the Ball 15 juillet 2003
Par William Hare - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Scott Ritter writes and talks like the no-nonsense ex-Marine he is. Since his viewpoint is anti-militarism in the Bush preventive war context, his enemies are indeed frustrated that they cannot dismiss him as a lily-livered pacifist in the way that the right seeks to dispatch military critics from Vietnam to the present.
A former weapons inspector in Iraq, Ritter tells the unvarnished truth without any political spin about that troubled Middle East nation and what was really happening during that critical period when inspectors attempted to analyze just what was occurring in that nation. He has been consistently vindicated in his claims that the weapons of mass destruction argument, which was the cornerstone of the pretext for invasion, is false. Ritter warned before America invaded that it was getting into a quagmire of Vietnam magnitude. Events have proven that claim valid. Compare the statements of Ritter regarding weapons of mass destruction and Iraqi military capability alongside those of Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Powell and clear differences emerge. The reports of the latter have been sketchy and lacking in substantive foundation. Ritter, conversely, has been vindicated as U.S. troops have become bogged down in a bottomless pit with no end in sight. For the first time, poll figures reveal that Americans believe the current price being paid in loss of life and injury to be unacceptable.
Ritter's conclusion in this timely work is, apropos his style, straightforward, directly to the point. When the subject of regime change is broached, Ritter believes that it needs to be achieved right here at home. Regime change begins with new American leadership with the vision to see the entire picture rather than deal in tawdry image creation and spin control.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent book - Ritter understands what defines patriotism 27 octobre 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Despite the attempts at assasinate his character during 2003-2003, Scott Ritter has been proven correct about Iraq and its lack of WMD. He is correct that we the citizens and the Congress are culpable for beleiving the Big Lie. Right-wingers will certainly try to disparage this book, but in today's climate loyalty to political party seems to take precedence over loyalty to country and to the U.S. Constitution. IMO, Scott Ritter is trying to stand up for the enlightend ideas and principles that founded our nation, and his book was a refreshing read of what has gone wrong, and what we need to do to fix things in 2004. Regime change at home, no more Big Lies.
Not only does Ritter painfully point out that the details showing that the Iraq invasion was a war of aggression, and as such illegal under International Law, but he successfully articulates that the US under this administration is looking very much like the earlier periods of fascism in Germany and Italy (mid-late 1930s). As an American I find these parallels repugnant, but an objective analysis of the facts suggest we are in fact following in those same footsteps.
Indeed, the neoconservative quest for "global dominance" will never happen, and may ultimately lead to economic failure of the US. The founding fathers were absolutely adamant that the US reject the temptation of Empire - as the histories of Empires all end the same way: Military overextension and subsequent economic decline. It's time to revisit the real meaning of the Constitution, the wisdom of the founding fathers, and the ideas and principles that founded our great nation.
As Ritter points out, simply waving the American flag and loving America is not enough - democracy requires active participation of the citizenry. Regrettably, Ritter is right 'America is going through a crisis of gigantic proportions. It is a struggle for the ideological soul of the nation. Bush and his posse have set a course for the future that dramatically departs, in words and in action, from the values and ideals set forth by our nation's founders." (page 201)
FYI to the media: During WWI, Teddy Roosevelt - a true conservative, and a species of politicians that is now all but extinct once said - "To annouce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." (page 8)
As pointed out by Ritter, Bush and the radical neoconservatives are the real traitors to both the American public and the ideas for which our country has stood for since the 1770s. Indeed, the US will quickly become an internaitonal isolated, bankrupt, and Authoritarian nation if this group of ideologues is not removed during next year's elections. Thank you Mr. Scott Ritter, for helping others understand that patriotism means - to protect the ideas espoused in our Constitution, from enemies both foreign and domestic - you are an American patriot.
I highly recommended this book for open-minded individuals (that includes *true* conservatives who care about our country and disavow the madness of the PNAC doctrine).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An excellent history book 22 août 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
A wonderful book chronciling the events leading up to the second Gulf War and Scott Ritter's role in it. Scott Ritter had the courage to speak out about what he believed was an unjust and immoral invasion of a sovereign nation and he always back it up with facts that are constantly ignored by the major media broadcastors. This book is highly entertaining as well as informative and it inspires Americans to take their citizenship more seriously because there are people out there(Republicans) who are working hard to take our Democracy away from us.
