    Pre-emption is the central policy guide to understanding how the zionist neo-conservatives think, strategize and advance their agenda and shape the nation discourse on security and foreign policy. It Is without a doubt that without 2 dozen zionist elites; the 2003 war on Iraq would not have happened. That is a terrifying testimony to the the israel lobby ability in gearing a nation for wars and deals against its interests.

It Is without a doubt that without 2 dozen zionist elites; the 2003 war on Iraq would not have happened. That is a terrifying testimony to the the israel lobby ability in gearing a nation for wars and deals against its interests. Because of their dedication, relentlessness, money, organization, vast media empire and their unethical use of disorientation the nation and its people's feelings during times of crisis. The neo-conservatives were able to manufacture a toleration for the idea of going to war against a nation that truly was not a threat to the US on behalf of another. in the first chapter, the author refuted the arguments(called them rightfully so, as red herrings) that the US went to the war for oil interests in a very convincing manner, citing that the main beneficiaries of oil contracts post war were NON-US companies. In the 2nd chapter, the author explains the origins of neo-conservative "ideology" and organization. The author believes they are grouped on the basis of interests(protecting israel and ensuring its primacy) more than shared economic ideology. their organization is more of a "flex net" with a gravitational core and people-elites- who interchangeably mix their private and public loyalties to advance certain agendas. This flex net helps them affect even hamstrung the executive branch of the state while protecting them from its accountability. In the 3rd chapter, the author explains how the iraqi war was sold to both the state institutions and the public based on flimsy evidence, the clout over the state-department, creating parallel institution to circumvent the CIA and provide the fabricated reports needed to sell the war. the 9/11 so-called connection, the hoax anthrax, the iraqi defectors who were fed lies. stumbles and problems occurred, but they were successful at pursuing the war they always egged for at the end. In the last chapter, the author refuted long-held neo-conservative arguments about the "one-ness" of the israel and american interests. mainly stating that it is an engineered view built on successive efforts of the israeli lobby in the US. The author gave plenty of examples were interests not only were dissimilar but actually harmful to the US(the oil sales and military hardware sales, the trade embargo on certain nations). a generous, must read book on Iraq and the neo-conservatives.

    Why did the United States invade Iraq? In The Israel Lobby, by John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt, the authors attribute much of the responsibility to the neoconservatives. The Road to Iraq is a must-read book for those wanting a more detailed analysis of this neoconservative involvement.

According to Stephen Walt, professor of international relations at Harvard University, The Road to Iraq is 'a superb analysis of how and why a small band of neoconservatives helped push the United States into a disastrous war,' and Ahmad's 'analysis is nuanced, his research comprehensive, and the story he tells is profoundly disturbing.'
