Description
Months after the triumph of Operation Desert Storm, the questions remain: what is Iraq's military capability? Where did Saddam Hussein get the armaments to provoke the Gulf war? What did he have and what does he have left? The Death Lobby answers these questions and exposes the truth behind the bribery and subterfuge that brought about deals with companies and commercial contactsfor arms and embargoed technology - and the conspiracy ofsilence in London, Washington, Paris, and Bonn, where repeatedwarnings of Iraq's true intentions were ignored ...Through his exhaustive research, Kenneth Timmerman proves that Saddam Hussein could never have brought about the Gulf war without the co-operation of Western governments and the decaying Soviet empire. His remarkable investigation has prompted questions in Parliament and has, at last, focused world attention on the insatiable greed and ambition that compromised world peace.The inescapable truth today is that yesterday's lessons have still tobe learnt... world peace still hangs in the balance ... the warningscan no longer be ignored.'Filled with carefully researched information about how greed for profits leads companies to support an unscrupulous dictator...' Simon WiesenthalThoroughly readable ... The Death Lobby describes a global arms supply system that is almost completely out of control...' Bulletin of Atomic Scientists - from Amzon
