Abstract

Officially Washington's current policy toward Iraq is to bring about a "regime change"—either through a military coup, or by means of a U.S. invasion, justified as a "preemptive attack" against a rogue state bent on developing and deploying weapons of mass destruction. But a U.S. invasion, should it take place, would not confine its objectives to mere regime change in Baghdad. The larger goal would be nothing less than the global projection of U.S. power through assertion of American dominance over the entire Middle East. What the world is now facing therefore is the prospect of a major new development in the history of imperialism.
