Overview of A Better Country: Why America Was Right to Confront Iraq

Arthur Borden's A Better Country demonstrates why America was right to confront Saddam Hussein. This book analyzes the public debate over Iraq to show how partisanship has obscured the purposes of the war effort and promoted a mistaken image of American power both domestically and abroad.

A Better Country reminds us that, stretching back to the presidency of Jimmy Carter and before, there had been a broad consensus over the touchstone issues of Iraq, the Middle East, and the unmentionable reality of oil-until political argument became degraded by charges of betrayal and wholesale deception.

Taking by turn the key points of argument-from weapons of mass destruction and the inspectors to containment and the imminence of the threat from aggressive Iraq-Borden argues that even the Administration failed to present clearly the true nature of the security risks facing America.

From George Bush and Hans Blix to Meet the Press and the New York Times, this book provides a lively account of how America-over its airways, through its newspapers, and thus within its living rooms-argues out the great issues of the day.

Written by a veteran of World War II and of the many political crises since, this book is underlined by a personal narrative about the meaning of America and of American power at its best. It renews the principle that, in rising to address security risks in an uncertain world, America itself becomes a better county.
