New Book On War Against Iraq
Book Highlight: Review:
The Price of Victory: The Gulf War
Dr. Jamal A. Shurdom
The tragic events of the outcome of the bloody Gulf War, attracted the
attention of the world media. For whatever reasons, the Western media
succeeded in presenting the Gulf War only from an antagonistic and one-sided
perspective, obviously anti-Iraqi and personally, anti-President Saddam
Over 52 distinguished scientists and field experts contributed to the writing
of this book.
This book is an accumulation of scientific studies targeted to assess the
full scale damage done to civilian infrastructures by the Allied bombing.
It sheds light on the southern region of Iraq where much of the bombing took
place, and uses eyewitness reports about the strange effects of some very
sophisticated weapon technology used in the Gulf War. Besides the Iraqi
victims, other casualties were American, British troops and other people in
This book sheds light on the other side of the Gulf War story, from different
"unheard" political perspectives, in order to motivate the reader to compare
the outcome of these studies with other studies that the Western scientists
and experts have conducted.
More importantly, in this book, the outcome of the Gulf War has revealed a
different face of this most sophisticated technological and computerized war
against the Iraqi people. The story of the US and British who used depleted
Uranium (DU), better known as "the Gulf War Syndrome and the use of DU," is
being fully discussed. Over ten years later, little has been said about US
and British troops exposed to the use of antitank shells made from (DU), a
toxic radioactive substance.
This book calls for a World-Wide scientific effort to study and analyze the
devastating effects of depleted uranium (DU) used during the 1991 war against
Iraq, on man and environment.
This book will, also focus on the United Nations (UN) comprehensive economic
sanctions imposed on Iraq by the UN's Security Council in Resolution 661 of
August 6, 1990. This book suggests that "perhaps the greatest problem now
facing the Middle East region is that of this horrified US led UN
comprehensive sanctions imposed against the Iraqi people." In this book, the
former US Attorney General, Ramsey Clark, describes the economic sanctions
as: "The most dangerous weapon of mass destruction."
The aftermath of the Gulf War presented a compelling spectacle of indignant
human suffering and an unacceptable devastation of the human perception of
In the pages of this book the authors have tried, by the purely humanitarian
goal to diagnose the problem, come close to it, and suggest remedies and warn
of unpredictable future bloody consequences. It is up to world public opinion
and the members of the UN to decide how to react in the future to such
