Is Israel to blame for the Iraq War?

American Goy | March 10, 2008

I am so tired of this old canard that “Israel had nothing to do with USA’s war with Iraq – in fact, it officially advised America against it”.


Quoting the Guardian newspaper:

The OSP (Office of Special Plans) was an open and largely unfiltered conduit to the White House not only for the Iraqi opposition. It also forged close ties to a parallel, ad hoc intelligence operation inside Ariel Sharon’s office in Israel specifically to bypass Mossad and provide the Bush administration with more alarmist reports on Saddam’s Iraq than Mossad was prepared to authorise.

“None of the Israelis who came were cleared into the Pentagon through normal channels,” said one source familiar with the visits. Instead, they were waved in on Mr Feith’s authority without having to fill in the usual forms.

The exchange of information continued a long-standing relationship Mr Feith and other Washington neo-conservatives had with Israel’s Likud party.

What was the OSP again?

Dick Cheney’s private CIA/NSA, the Office of Special Plans, designed to sort the CIA and NSA information on Iraq and only pick those which proved that Iraq had WMD. If the CIA had a report (as they did, multiple times) that Iraq was almost destroyed and had no WMD capability, no chemical, biological nor nuclear program, that information was ignored. Only information that “proved” Iraq had WMD capability was needed… and the CIA refused to supply it, because they are both patriots and professionals. 

And this is where the representatives from Israel come in – they literally came to the USA and provided the OSP with the “proof” OSP required to lie to Congress, and make Colin Powell lie to the UN.

I am sorry, but when on the one hand we have newspaper articles stating that “Israel advised the USA not to invade Iraq”, and on the other hand we have Israeli government officials visiting the USA to dump “proof” and “intelligence” that Iraq had WMD, what am I, a poor goy, supposed to think?

How about the fact that American citizens, who were American government employees in their previous jobs were advisers to the Israeli LIKUD government – did you know about that from the CNN? Perhaps there was no time to run the following story, as Britney Spears is much more important:

In 1996, he (Feith -AG) and Richard Perle – now an influential Pentagon figure – served as advisers to the then Likud leader, Binyamin Netanyahu. In a policy paper they wrote, entitled A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm, the two advisers said that Saddam would have to be destroyed, and Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and Iran would have to be overthrown or destabilised, for Israel to be truly safe.

May I urge you to stop by the most important article on this blog; pretty please with sugar on top?

We have American citizens, who are United States government officials, who base ALL their decisions on one thing – is this good for Israel?


Here is your proof

“He (Congressman Berman -AG) said Israel “is why I went on the Foreign Affairs Committee–” he corrected himself– “it’s part of why I went on the Foreign Affairs committee in the first place. I’m a great supporter of Israel.”

How blatant can you be? I became a member of the Foreign Affairs committee to help out Israel. And he is still a US congressman? Hello, Earth to Americans?! Anybody here still cares about this country or can we just sell it all to the highest lobby money bidder?

And of course behind the scenes experts are hard at work to make America attack Iran, because as we all know, not attacking Iran is anti-semitic and racist.

We really do live in a bizzarro world now, where up is down, war is peace, and actions that clearly harm American interests must be done because otherwise one is unpatriotic!

Says Hagel (Senator Chuck Hagel): “The political reality is that… the Jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up here.” Hagel then related a meeting he had in New York with a group of supporters of Israel who are pushing the U.S. to attack Iran. When Hagel said it hadn’t worked out that well in Iraq, a couple of members of the group said he wasn’t supportive enough of Israel.”

No shit? So how does an American react to this criticism?

When Hagel said it hadn’t worked out that well in Iraq, a couple of members of the group said he wasn’t supportive enough of Israel.

Hagel spoke firmly: “Let me clear something up here if there’s any doubt in your mind. I’m a U.S. Senator. I’m not an Israeli senator. I’m a U.S. Senator. I support Israel… But my first interest is, I take an oath to the constitution of the United States. Not to a president, not to a party, not to Israel.

Right on Mr. Hagel!

John Sununu, republican:

It’s like a handful of pebbles in the shoe. It’s there all the time, and this process of not permitting anything that’s trying to tug in the other direction, to gain root and thrive, is almost automatic. And it’s not just AIPAC, it happens all the time, everywhere. Every congressman, every senator, before they win, is being soft lobbied on the issue. Whether it’s their friend that owns 40 acres down the street whose grandfather happened to have come from Kiev, goes in and talks to him about helping him, developing a social relationship on an issue that has nothing to do with the district, begins to communicate their interest. And rightly so– pulling on their end of the rope. It happens almost invisibly. But across the board. There is nobody who has run for office in this country who has not been soft lobbied the day they announce that they are going to run and not been hard lobbied after they win.

Again, I wrote all this before, but I need to harp on this because we Americans have the attention span of a 4 year old child on a sugar high, and perhaps we need our information spoon fed us. Well, consider yourself fed, AmericanGoy style.

Our government has been hijacked by extremists, who are putting the interests of Israel above that of the United States. Something needs to be done – and the first thing is to be free to talk about it, in the open, on TV, radio, newspaper columns, blogs.

The Left Wing, the phoenix that never shall rise in America

The left wing, being as clueless as the rest of America, looks for a conspiracy theory when this is all in the open. There is no conspiracy if everything is explained, it is out there in newspaper articles, in books; it is not a conspiracy when a person can use google for 10 minutes and find this all out. 

So the political left in this country latched on to the idea that this was a war for oil. Looking at it from the perspective of watching CNN, MSNBC and FOX this seems a plausible theory. After all, Iraq has supposedly 2nd most oil on the planet, 2nd only to Saudi Arabia – for the lazy or naysayers, link here.

Of course, we have the incomparable Mr. Weiss to destroy another canard for us in his analysis here.

He uses an upcoming book, Wrestling with Zion and quotes it:

This is one of those very difficult moments. Certainly one would not say that Jews have ‘taken control of U.S. foreign policy,’ but it’s certainly the case–and I think a very ominous case–that the Bush administration, to a much greater degree than any previous administration, has people in it who are ardent right-wing Zionists and who have actually been advisors in upper echelons of government. We don’t want to talk about ‘The Jews.’ But I think it is important to talk about people with a very strong militant imperialist sort of Zionist mentality.

The fact of the matter is that these people are substantially more powerful in this administration than they have been in any other. These are also the same people who are leading the United States into a kind of preemptive mode, which is so appalling and terrifying to the whole world.

I disagree with what Mitchell [Plitnick] just said on that subject. I think we have to learn ways to speak about the actualities of Zionism without falling into the abyss of anti-Semitism. That’s a very, very difficult question. It’s something that’s inhibited critique of Israel for many, many years. We have to be very forthright and say that this kind of rational critique of the Zionist project is really necessary. It’s necessary in order to prevent anti-Semitism, among other things.

Mr. Weiss explains it all:

Plitnick has succeeded in the years since the war began. He (and Stephen Zunes, and Norman Finkelstein, and Noam Chomsky) has stemmed the belief that Zionists had a role in the Iraq war policy, I believe out of fear that Jews would be persecuted if the connection were made. Other liberal Jews have gone along with this anti-intellectual ideology. Smart guys like Jerrold Nadler and Glenn Greenwald have fingered the neocons for their authorship of the war but declined to link their fervent Zionism to the war project. Jacob Heilbrunn came close to saying that the Iraq-planning neocons were motivated by Israel’s security in his book, They Knew They Were Right, but has seemed to back away from any such suggestion in his public statements on the book. Washington Post diplomatic correspondent Glenn Kessler bravely wrote, in his Condi Rice bio, that the Iraq war was planned in part to “help Israel,” but has this assertion ever been explored in the pages of the Washington Post? When Walt and Mearsheimer made that claim in their groundbreaking book, the Post repeatedly attacked them as antisemites, while the liberal Forward editorialized, “In Dark Times, Blame the Jews.”

Got all that?



Let me then just point out the obvious – at least to me – and analyze this for you. 

The Right Wing.

The pro-Israel lobby in the USA, the hardcore LIKUD sympathizers, the people who are really far to the right of the Israeli political spectrum, actively steered the USA foreign policy into a war with Iraq. These influential people were Jews, some of them American citizens, some of them Israeli citizens (those who shuttled to and from Israel to Dick Cheney’s OSP), but all working towards the same goal – to promote Israel’s goal (as understood by them), which was for America to take out Israel’s enemies. 

The Left Wing.

The left wing in America – intellectuals like Finkelstein, Chomsky and Zunes, and many, many others promote the idea that the Iraq fiasco was an oil grab, and try to steer the discussion away from the fact that the neocon movement is mainly a Jewish-American movement, of a particual brand of American-Jew – that of a hard core pitiless right winger, whose main aim is to promote Israel’s goals over any other nation’s (even those that they are the citizens of – e.g. the United States). 

Bonus Material – the charge of anti-semitism.

I am an American; I am an American citizen. Everything I do in the political sense has one prism – just like pro-Israel people ask themselves first and foremost “Is this good for Israel”, I ask myself always, first and foremost “Is this good for the United States of America”. 

In my view, our country’s unquestioning support of Israel is not good for America.

Enough said.

One must realize, when reading articles such as the ones found on this blog, or Mr. Weiss’ blog, or Silverstein’s blog, that Americans who are Jewish have an incredible range of political opinion and it is not a monolithic blob of people, robotically following their master’s voice from Israel. There are extreme right wingers (aka LIKUD supporters), there are centrists, there are left wingers, the hippies, communists, etc etc. Just like you cannot say that because America invaded Iraq, that all Americans are evil bullies, and stupid to boot.

Just like Israelis themselves represent a whole gamut of political views, from extreme right wingers thru centrists to left wingers, hippies and communists. There were Israeli Defense Force generals and lower ranks who openly advised for the USA to NOT attack and occupy Iraq. Mossad specialists also advised the same, just like the CIA in this country.

The trouble is that the US government officials in power now, under bush jr., ARE evil, stupid bullies – hard core right wing.

The trouble is that the American Jews present in this administration, are not just sympathetic to Israel, but ARE ALSO hard core right wing LIKUD supporters type – no Finkelstein is present in that crowd, believe you me.

I believe that criticizing Israel, the country, is valid.

I believe that pointing out the influence of the pro-Israel lobby power in the United States is being a patriot and adding to the discussion.

I believe that a question needs to be posed to Clinton, Obama, John McCain, the American Congressm, in fact, all American politicians – what is your view on the United States support for Israel and what do you think the USA gets out of it?

I believe Americans need to know these facts and decide what their country should do – regarding not just Israel-Arab conflict, but a whole slew of issues.

In a democracy, secrecy is it’s greatest enemy.

Lets fight it.

Let us stop being American citizens, who watch American Idol, Lost and internet porn, and start being American Citizens, who give a damn about this nation.

After all, we live here. It is our sons and daughters dying in Iraq. It is our tax money. It is our nation.

Israel To U.S.: Don’t Delay Iraq Attack

Sharon Government Urges Prompt Action Against Saddam

CBS News, August 16 2002

Israel is urging U.S. officials not to delay a military strike against Iraq’s Saddam Hussein, an aide to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said Friday.

Israeli intelligence officials have gathered evidence that Iraq is speeding up efforts to produce biological and chemical weapons, said Sharon aide Ranaan Gissin.

“Any postponement of an attack on Iraq at this stage will serve no purpose,” Gissin said. “It will only give him (Saddam) more of an opportunity to accelerate his program of weapons of mass destruction.” …

  1. Of course Israel’s interest is present in American foreign policy, considering that Israel is “the most reliable ally of the US in the Middle East”, according to many.
    But saying that it was an “Israel war” is an oversimplification. The US would have never gone to war had it not had a specific stake of its own down there. Oil, geostrategy, whatever you like to call it.
    Now let us analyze seriously the geopolitical area. Was the war in Israeli interest? Yes, but not only. We may safely say that it was also in Saudi, Kuwaiti, Iranian interest…
    And what about Afghanistan? Was it also in Israeli interest? Hardly to say. The countries which pop up for their direct enmity with the Taliban regime (and which were already providing aid to the Northern Alliance)are Russia, India, Iran…
    Paradoxically, only Iran appears in both theaters as an interested beholder/player to see both regimes down and influence the new governments. Which is precisely what is happening!
    So we might ask: Were US wars against Afghanistan and Iraq “Iran wars”?

    Comment by Enrique Ferro | November 21, 2010

    • Hmmm, Enrique, since it surely was not oil (a fungible commodity), were the multiple invasions done for Iran or Israel? Such a tough question eh?

  2. The Transparent Cabal
    The Neoconservative Agenda, War in the Middle East, and the National Interest of Israel (Hardcover)
    by Stephen J. Sniegoski (Author), Paul Gottfried PhD (Preface), Paul Findley (Foreword)

    “This is a riveting book.” —Paul Craig Roberts, PhD, syndicated columnist; former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury; and former associate editor, Wall Street Journal

    “The time is right for an unvarnished examination of the origins, history, and agenda of the neoconservative policy bloc in Washington and in Tel Aviv. The Transparent Cabal helps to provide one.” —Lt. Col. Karen Kwiatkowski, USAF (ret.), PhD

    “The timing of Dr. Sniegoski’s book could not be better. The only aspect of U.S. Middle East policy not in controversy is that no one knows what to do; Sniegoski’s book may help the debate break through this barrier.” —Joseph Douglass Jr., PhD, author, America the Vulnerable: The Threat of Chemical/Biological Warfare and Red Cocaine: The Drugging of America

    “I have known Dr. Sniegoski for many years. He is a thorough researcher with a capacity for independent thought and the courage to advance and defend his analyses.” —Wayne S. Cole, PhD, professor emeritus, University of Maryland

    “Sniegoski leaves no stone unturned in exposing the Israeli-neocon alliance and its catastrophic consequences in the Middle East. Timely and important, his book should provoke a much-needed debate about who truly benefits from current US policies in the region.” —Jonathan Cook, author, Israel and the Clash of Civilisations

    “That the security of Israel has been central to the foreign-policy worldview of the neo-conservatives is one of the least discussed and most taboo aspects of the movement. Sniegolski has long been among the most dogged researchers who have tried to bring this to light.” —Jim Lobe, Washington Bureau Chief, Inter Press Service (IPS).

    “Sniegoski breaks new ground and pulls no punches in his analysis of the neocon-driven policies that brought about war with Iraq. He broadens the inquiry into many areas that desperately need sunshine and clarity.” —Philip Giraldi, former CIA officer, partner in Cannistraro Associates, national security consultants, and contributing editor, The American Conservative

    “Telling the truth in America today is more professionally risky than ever before, but happily Sniegoski couldn’t care less. His rendition of recent American history is utterly absorbing.” —Thomas Woods, Ph.D., New York Times bestselling author, The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History

    Product Description
    Although it is generally understood that American neoconservatives pushed hard for the war in Iraq, this book forcefully argues that the neocons’ goal was not the spread of democracy, but the protection of Israel’s interests in the Middle East. Showing that the neocon movement has always identified closely with the interests of Israel’s Likudnik right wing, the discussion contends that neocon advice on Iraq was the exact opposite of conventional United States foreign policy, which has always sought to maintain stability in the region to promote the flow of oil. Various players in the rush to war are assessed according to their motives, including President Bush, Ariel Sharon, members of the foreign-policy establishment, and the American people, who are seen not as having been dragged into war against their will, but as ready after 9/11 for retaliation.

    A Gift to the American People
    by Roberta Gilbert “Roberta Gilbert” (Falls Church, VA)

    Stephen Sniegoski’s book, The Transparent Cabal, is a great gift to us all. A scholar of history, almost nothing he asserts is undocumented. In this shocking expose of events and actions that may turn out to be the undoing of America, he shows, among other things:
    1. How a “figurehead” leader who is not really a leader and his administration, can be taken over by other interests, to our own detriment.
    2. How not everyone in high office has the best interest of the USA at heart.
    3. How a political party can be inflitrated and taken over so that its foundational viewpoints are not heard or listened to
    4. How name-calling and smear can be very effective at stifling honest debate and the truth
    5. How taking sides with other countries, surrendering our neutrality in world affairs is not a good idea
    6. How national security has been threatened by the takeover.
    This book should be read by every American. We cannot afford not to know what is in its pages.

    By Michael Santomauro “What sort of Truth is it … (New York, NY USA)
    Sniegoski’s achievement in writing this book is to show how the neocons left the Democratic Party, which of course was mother’s milk to all Zionists, and joined the Republicans over the issue of an aggressive foreign policy in the Middle East!

    I like how straightforward Sniegoski is about the neocons’ Jewishness and Israel-centric agenda. Most non-Jews won’t be able to stretch their ego to accept the power Jewish groups have over their lives and who calls the shots in the United States in the political arena.

    The fact is that 40% of the billionaires in the United States are Jewish or come from interfaith backgrounds where one side of the family is Jewish. This in a nation that represents 25-30% of the global economy.

    According to J. J. Goldberg (the former editor of the Forward) in his book Jewish Power he boasts that 45% of the fundraising for the Democratic party and 25% of the funding for the Republican party come from Jewish funded Political Action Committees. Richard Cohen of the Washington Post has recently updated this data to read 60% for democrats and 35% for republicans fundraising come from Jewish funded Political Action Committees.

    Since the 1930s according to Forbes business magazine, 25%-30% of the
    wealthiest families in America have been Jewish.

    In Canada the sixth biggest economy in the world, Jewish-Canadian billionaires represent 49% of the Canadian stock market. And Jewish-Canadians of wealth are notorious heavyweights for political donations in U.S. politics, in effect helping the cause for the Zionist entity, through the military might of the U.S.

    The U.S. Jewish population is only 1.8%, less than 2%. BUT who REALLY knows? The Jewish lobby is so powerful, that they are the only group to have successfully petitioned the U.S. Census Bureau not to be counted in their compilation!

    Historically, Jews wherever they have resided have always wanted and have been officially undercounted for political purposes.

    It is my contention they are one of the most powerful groups in the world. And should be studied and understood by books such as this one. BUY IT NOW.

    History will always link the Iraq War with the term ‘neoconservative’, August 28, 2008
    By Dennis R. Jugan (Johnstown, PA United States)

    Stephen Sniegoski, a diplomatic historian, is uniquely qualified to write about the neoconservatives’ involvement in the prolonged Iraq War originating in 2003. He accurately predicted their activities and allegiance in this entanglement in 1998, three years before the acts of 9-11 and two additional years before a traumatized nation yielded to a nescient, misdirected President, his Vice President/administration, and an ostensibly compliant bi-partisan House and Senate.

    The author presents a tight outline which he cogently expands in intelligible detail, maintaining that the origins of the American war on Iraq revolve around the adoption of a war agenda whose basic structure was conceived in Israel to advance Israel’s interests. The pro-Israel neoconservatives and a powerful Israel lobby in the United States fervently pushed its agenda. Ironically, he extracts his most persuasive evidence from an extensive neoconservative paper trail that’s been clearly recognized by a discreet cadre of vigilant Americans for years. Thus the title, “The Transparent Cabal.”

    Dr. Sniegoski asks the appropriate question: “Who are the neoconservatives?” He provides insightful answers on their pertinent activities since 1972, those who shaped and mentored them, their immediate family/interconnected family networks, their prominent periodical publications, their past and present leadership, non-Jewish minority members, their persistent rise to positions of political influence and authority, their embrace of Christian Zionism, and their close ties to the extremely conservative Likud Party in Israel. He reveals their tactical affiliations with key, heavily endowed influential think tanks, and a vast number of powerful Israel-centric lobbying organizations that reactively finance and nurture their continued success.

    Many readers will recognize his references to writers of previous books, articles and columns — many of Jewish heritage — who bravely fight against well financed, mainstream media-dominant opponents and their psychological surrogates active on the Internet. These opponents perniciously engage in personal attacks and retribution, indiscriminately applying irrelevant anti-semitic labels. They persist at attempting to sway public discourse by spreading misinformation, disinformation, or conversely, NO RELEVANT INFORMATION to the public.

    In various places throughout the book, the author notes curious relationships with current and former elected and appointed officials. He writes about the ongoing 2008 presidential campaign in a postscript, citing past and existing direct influences on specific candidates by the neoconservatives, the Israel Lobby and its supporters.

    The book concludes with a summary of the paucity of benefits compared to the predictable losses of the American people over recent years. These are the real consequences of the Israel-inspired plan to “drain the swamp” (a euphemism for destabilizing perceived enemies then establishing precarious nominal democracies) that began with our misadventure in Iraq and was to proceed with subsequent U.S. military interventions in Iran and Syria. The few meager benefits and the enormous losses to the United States are compared to the strategic advantages that the State of Israel derives directly from our five-year induced military involvement in Iraq and our concomitant departure from past, longstanding policies of diplomacy and stability in the Middle East.

    Sniegoski counsels, “it is hardly controversial to propose that elites, rather than the people as a whole, determine government policies, even in democracies.”

    Yet this war has a supporting cast of middle Americans. Many of them were traumatized by the events of 9-11 and reactively saw an act of patriotism in supporting retaliation against a falsely perceived enemy in Iraq. It’s time to reconsider false arguments preceding the Iraq War that have only been cosmetically modified until the present day. It’s time to dismiss incongruous ideas formed in the cauldron of confusion after 9-11.

    Given today’s realities, it DOES take patriotism and courage to insist on formally normalizing an entangled, unreciprocated military alliance with an Israeli government that burdens the taxpayers of the United States, promotes angst among its people, and imperils its military forces worldwide.

    VOTERS: Know the facts before you choose your elected officials on November 4, 2008 and embrace Thomas Jefferson’s ideal of ‘eternal vigilance’ as citizens of the United States.

    totally disagrees with official 9/11 line

    Essay “Treason, Betrayal and Deceit: 9/11 and Beyond” 9/10/09:

    “The official 9/11 Commission’s work and report were at best an incomplete exercise. Many people dismiss the findings of the Commission, and that includes its co-chairs [ Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton ]. Many others who utterly distrust the 9/11 Commission report, dismiss the US Government’s explanation of it, and point to both an official cover-up and an “inside job,” include veteran fighter pilots, EMTs (Emergency Medical Technicians), air defense experts, experienced commercial pilots, demolition experts, architects and civil engineers – none of them professions that inherently attract and retain the gullible and credulous.

    Several things are very clear to me from a careful assessment of both official and critical evaluations of the 9/11 attacks. First, the striking aircraft alone simply could not have brought down either of the two buildings in the manner in which they fell, much less a third building which was not hit by a plane (I expect the one intended to do that as a “cover” had ended up in that Pennsylvania field), given the available physical evidence and a wealth of expert testimony. This means the attackers had assistance on the ground, and it had to have been active before the attacks occurred: preparing buildings for controlled demolition is not something done haphazardly in the midst of chaos.

    Second, only two intelligence agencies had the expertise, assets, access and political protection to execute 9/11 in the air and on the ground: our CIA and Israel’s Mossad. Only one had the incentive, using the “who benefits” principle: Mossad. And that incentive dovetailed perfectly with the neo-con’s agenda and explicitly expressed need for a catalytic event to mobilize the American public for their wars, using American military power to destroy Israel’s enemies. Only the unexpected strength of the Iraqi resistance kept Syria and Iran from being attacked in the second Bush Administration. Thus, the evidential trail for 9/11 and the wars in Afghanistan & Iraq run from PNAC, AIPAC and their cohorts; through the mostly Jewish neo-cons in the Bush Administration; and back to the Israeli government. None of the denials and political machinations can alter that essential reality. Terms such as treason, betrayal and deceit do not overstate the case against them.

    Finally, we need to take a hard look at why the mainstream media (MSM) have paid more attention to Sarah Palin’s wardrobe than they have to dissecting blatant falsehoods, discrepancies and inconsistencies in the US Government’s treatment of 9/11 and its aftermath. And the reason is that on this issue, all are on the same side, and the official line is the one they all prefer – “all” meaning the PNAC alumni who took over the Bush Administration’s national security apparatus and their counterparts in the Obama administration, AIPAC and the rest of the numerous Jewish PACs, the MSM owners and Israel.”

  4. We must not forget the exchange on CBS between Bill Clinton’s (inevitably Zionist) Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, who was then the US ambassador to the United Nations, and Lesley Stahl of CBS in a Sixty Minutes interview on 12 May 1996.
    Albright was maintaining that sanctions had yielded important concessions from Saddam Hussein.

    Stahl: “We have heard that half a million children have died. I mean, that’s more children than died in Hiroshima. And you know, is the price worth it?”

    Albright: “I think this is a very hard choice, but the price… ­ we think the price is worth it.”

    They read that exchange in the Middle East. It was infamous all over the Arab world.

    Iraq sanctions lead to half a million child deaths

    Economic sanctions imposed on Iraq since the ending of the Gulf war have been responsible for the deaths of more than half a million children, according to a new study. The study also shows that severe malnutrition is widespread among children in the capital city of Baghdad.
    The study, by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations, is published as a letter in the Lancet (2 December, p 1485).
