Public and secret documents tell the inside story of how the U.S. government lied about poison gas casualties in the Kurdish town of Halabja during the Iran-Iraq war to justify the U.S. invasion of Iraq. They also reveal the real motivations for war.

Dr. Sharat G. Lin writes on the Middle East and the global economy. He shows how duplicity in the name of "national interest" pervades U.S. foreign policy. After four years of war, the second longest in U.S. history, he also discusses the mounting threat to Iran and an alternative road to peace.
