Another American (Stanford ) "Intellectual":


Peaceful solutions not effective in Iraq

By Bo Cowgill

last updated April 7, 2003 10:03 PM

Future world leaders at Stanford can learn something from the war with Iraq. Something besides the need to respect international opinion and use violence only as a last resort.
Leaders should also be able to identify threats to stability and confront them, even when doing so is challenging and unpopular and before violence is imminent. Leaders should also know when easy solutions such as deterrence or diplomacy have outlived their effectiveness and when serious action is warranted.

The situation with Iraq is an example of an emerging threat that peaceful solutions cannot handle. Recent history shows that Iraq is a threat to the United States and to our allies, as well as to the stability in the Middle East. It is also clear from the historical record the ineffectiveness of deterrence and diplomacy in dealing with this threat.

On many occasions, Iraq’s government publicly stated its desire to attack the United States and its allies. Even in the face of war, it has yet to backtrack.

The most recent public announcement was Hussein’s November 2000 call for all Arabs to attack the interests of the United States, British and Israeli interests worldwide. According to the Middle East Intelligence Bulletin (Jan. 2001), in December 2000, Iraq’s state-controlled media announced, “a number of Arabian Gulf states are likely to face explosions and operations against U.S. forces in these countries.”

In June 2002, a Kuwaiti newspaper quoted top adviser to Hussein saying, “The time has come to take the fight to their own homes in America.”

Another adviser said, “If [Osama] Bin Laden truly did carry out the September attacks as they claim, then as Allah is my witness, we will prove to them that what happened in September is a picnic compared to the wrath of Saddam Hussein.”

These threats to the United States and our allies have been repeated throughout the 1990s — even before former President George Bush’s inauguration. In 1991, they were acted upon when Iraq attacked Israel and Kuwait. At no point has Iraq shown any signs of changing its combative rhetoric.

Meanwhile, Iraq has sought chemical, biological and nuclear weapons on many documented occasions. It doesn’t matter who armed Iraq in the 1980s. The use of these weapons against American troops or civilians in 2003 would render significant damage and must be prevented.

In spite of economic sanctions and inspections, nuclear weapons are a realistic goal for Iraq. The significantly weaker North Korean economy was able to pay for nuclear weapons and make them while being inspected by the United Nations. What would be different about Iraq?

The threat from Iraq is obvious, and there is no realistic way to impede this threat short of war. Deterrence and diplomacy would fail as an alternative to war. If nothing else, the current situation demonstrates that Hussein cannot be deterred. In the past few months, Hussein has chosen almost certain death above complete cooperation or resignation. He was likewise resistant to deterrence in the Gulf War in 1991, when he faced a much stronger American force and an unclear post-war fate.

Deterring Hussein has failed in the past. Why would it work in the future if Iraq becomes a nuclear power? Even if Hussein could be deterred, nothing prevents him from covertly giving weapons to people who can’t be deterred — like the Sept. 11 hijackers.

Any diplomatic solution that leaves Iraq in charge of its own disarmament is bound to fail. If promises meant anything to the Hussein regime, there would be no concern about his disarmament to begin with.

This is true even with inspections. Iraq is too large to inspect in the first place — the significantly smaller North Korean regime was able to develop nuclear weapons in spite of ongoing United Nations inspections and a paltry economy. Iraq’s history of lack of cooperativeness with weapons inspections makes thorough inspections even more unlikely.

Even a tougher inspections regime would not work. The world cannot pay indeterminate attention to Iraq, and the United States cannot indefinitely sustain its military buildup. Without a military buildup, it’s doubtful that Iraq would have taken steps towards disarmament at all.

When deterrence and diplomacy fail, there are only two remaining options: Act now, or wait for Iraq to fulfill its promises. It’s a pity that the United Nations could not see the ineffectiveness of more diplomacy, but nearly all opposition countries released a statement saying, “We hope our posture on Iraq will not affect normal relations with the U.S..”

The move exposed the shallowness of the “alienation” U.S. allies felt over our stance. Defense policy is about national security, not about being popular. Attacking Iraq was the right decision.

we need to form like our own distribution joint cause the majors aint really working for the artists or the fans. Like we need to connect, be able to ship stuff to anywhere around the country and the world, while minimising the costs.
