2002.12.08: Iraq: Go to War? and The Nuclear Question.. [Version 3] Obviously most relevant to the Iraq war question, this paper identifies what I consider to be the key points in public US and UK documents as of mid-October 2002 concerning weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. I isolate the US and UK characterizations of the Iraqi nuclear program and consider 'coercive inspection' proposals. In a section titled WMD Aside, What is the Bush Group After? I put the greatest weight on calculations of electoral success in November 2002 and November 2004.
2003.11.11: The Iraq War of 2003 and the Politics of Denuclearization. This paper traces steps in the decision to go to war against Iraq, showing how claims about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction were knit into US and British justifications. The period surveyed is August 2002 through October 2003.
