Destroying World Order: U.S. Imperialism in the Middle East Before and After September 11th (Paperback) by Francis Anthony Boyle

What are the imperial dimensions of U.S. policy in the Middle East, past and present? This hard-hitting commentary, well-grounded in fact and law, addresses these questions:

* Did the U.S. break international law in the Middle East before September 11th?
* ...after September 11th?
* How are U.S. actions affecting the UN?
*What are the implications for world peace for the American military, American civil liberties and American and international economic well-being?
*Should George W. Bush be impeached for lying in leading the nation to war?

The author further discusses U.S. assistance to Iraq during the Iran/Iraq war and U.S. conduct of the 1990 Gulf War, and the recent wars in Afghanistan and Iraq in relation to violations of the laws of neutrality, humanitarian law, the laws of war and the U.S. Constitution. The concluding chapter includes draft articles for the impeachment of President George W. Bush
