  • The Greatest Threat Iraq, Weapons Of Mass Destruction, And The Crisis Of Global Security Richard Butler The West may face no greater enemy than Saddam Hussein, and yet, as Richard Butler makes clear in The Greatest Threat, the West would rather bury its head in the Mesopotamian sands than deal with the problem.As the head of UNSCOM, the United Nations Special Commission that was supposed to regularly inspect Iraq for weapons violations after the Gulf War, Butler was the WestThe West may face no greater enemy than Saddam Hussein, and yet, as Richard Butler makes clear in The Greatest Threat, the West would rather bury its head in the Mesopotamian sands than deal with the problem.As the head of UNSCOM, the United Nations Special Commission that was supposed to regularly inspect Iraq for weapons violations after the Gulf War, Butler was the West s sheriff the one person on the ground with the authority to shut the Iraqis down if he caught them cheating And he was not the type to surrender to the Iraqis, not when he knew what was at stake But Butler s authority was undermined behind his back As he reveals in this outspoken, finger pointing, newsbreaking book, Kofi Annan agreed to Hussein s outrageous demands and then claimed victory Russia s foreign minister took secret payoffs from the Iraqis in exchange for his support The French, eager to do business with the dictator, undercut American efforts to force Hussein to comply And the result is that, despite Iraq s supposed defeat, Saddam Hussein has very likely resumed building nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons that could be used against Israel, Turkey, or even the United States.The Greatest Threat is arousing, disturbing reading for anyone interested in American foreign policy, in the breakdown of controls on weapons of mass destruction, or in the precarious state of international relations.

    One thought on “The Greatest Threat Iraq, Weapons Of Mass Destruction, And The Crisis Of Global Security”

    1. This is an important historical testimony about the weapons inspections of Iraq in the late 1990 s Butler led UNSCOM for two years and dealt with Iraq s various forms of non compliance, as well as significant weakness and delusion in the UN Anyone who thinks that Iraq was complying with the UN needs to check out this book Butler positively seethes with anger about his dealings with Tariq Aziz, who comes across as the ultimate liar and scumbag He also shows how various forces at the UN, from Kofi [...]

    2. I thought this was a pretty good book that documented why Richard Butler thought Saddam s Iraq was such a serious threat to world peace Although he ended up not being a supporter of the Iraq War, this book clearly shows how deceptive Saddam s government was when it came to the issue of WMD in Iraq, and the UN inspection process.

    3. Facinating account of what the UN inspectors had to go through when dealing with Iraq and the internal politics of the UN.
