Baffled by how US President George Bush’s war on al-Qaeda segued into war on Iraq? Canada’s leading expert on war unravels the tangled chain of events.

The terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001, unleashed an avalanche of incidents that slide inexorably towards war between the USA (and possibly its allies) and Iraq.

These events are clearly connected yet so hugely different in character and motive that even those who follow the news closely are bewildered by how the war on al-Qaeda in Afghanistan segued into war in the Middle East.

In Ignorant Armies, Gwynne Dyer, a peerless commentator on the causes and consequences of war, explains the strategies of the major players: American, Iraqi, Israeli, and Islamist.

Alarmingly, he demonstrates that despite the growing bellicosity from the White House, neither the US nor the other protagonists in this drama have a strategy that serves their own long-term interests.

Worse, they are unlikely to achieve even their short-term goals. But, Dyer argues convincingly, they are likely to smash a good deal of crockery on their way to finding that out.

Dyer has served in the Canadian, British and American navies. He holds a PhD in war studies from the University of London, has taught at Sandhurst military college and served on the board of governors of Canada’s Royal Military College.

Dyer writes a syndicated column that appears in more than 175 newspapers around the world.

Ignorant Armies by Gwynne Dyer is a 2003 first edition published by McClelland & Stewart, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

It is a 189-page 14x21.5cm paperback in good condition subtitled Sliding Into War in Iraq.
