Appointment in Baghdad

Buckley Jr., William F.
January 2002
National Review;1/28/2002, Vol. 54 Issue 1, p16
This article focuses on the U.S. offensive against the Baathist regime in Iraq. It will take time and effort for the U.S. to make the anti-Iraqi President Saddam Hussein case to the world so that international resistance is softened up. It is argued that the groundwork for the Iraqi campaign must begin now, starting with the U.S. State Department's getting over its contemptuous neglect of the Iraqi opposition. The administration of U.S. President George W. Bush ultimately cannot shrink from its challenge in Baghdad.
