This book was a very astute insight into the Iraq war and the politics that made it. Follow the money and it leads to the reason most wars are fought The fallout was civilians robbed of their lives and their country in ruins.Education and the right to live in peace are gone and in their place are people with a great anger and a great need to control something by any means
