Naval War College Review


The United States and its allies once more stand on the brink of war with Iraq. What makes this war different, however, is that its primary goal is to replace the dictatorial regime of Saddam Hussein with a democratic form of government.

While there is consensus to remove Saddam and de- stroy his weapons, there is disagree- ment among the experts as to how to accomplish it.
