Unformatted text preview: I PE Assignment By: SALMAN ZAFAR ID: 07U0185 SEC: L Q; Pick any war conflict after WW2, what are its causes and how does this relate to the political economy of a country? ANS: IRAQ WAR Causes of war with Iraq are controversial, not only in America, but around the world. President Bush calls it the war on terror and, indeed, it is a war on terror. It all started recently with 9/11. September 11, 2001 is the day that Al Qaeda terrorists took overAmerican flights and crashed the planes into two of the World Trade Center Towers, the Pentagon, and a field in Pennsylvania (this plane was meant for the White House). Causes of war with Iraqinclude intelligence reports saying Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. They may exist and be hidden under all of that sand or they could have been moved out of the country. Saddam was committing brutal acts on his own people. Rapes and mass murders were common. Mass graves of his victims have been uncovered and reported on the evening newscasts over and over again. The Iraqi people were forced to submit to Saddam but they hated him.

Greed is one of the causes of war with Iraq--Saddam Hussein was sitting on one of the largest deposits of oil in the world. He had billions and billions of dollars in revenue. He had palaces, women and cars, everything a person could possibly want but he had no heart. He thought of himself and himself only--he gave no thought to the dire plight of his people--he made them live in extreme poverty because he chose to use the money for himself and to build a military--a military not for defense but for offense--instead of using his wealth to help his people, he told them, "Here, let's attack Kuwait and plunder it--as my commanders, you and your men can take all the plunder you want, kill anyone you want, rape any woman you want"--so they did....
