The Case for Siding with the Iraqi People

(p.285) 20 Gulf War Syndrome Mark II
A Matter of Principle

Johann Hari

University of California Press

Gulf War Syndrome Mark II has not been officially diagnosed, but the political classes of Britain and the United States are now lurching into the advanced stages of the disease. Its symptoms are simple and—for Iraqis—deadly. The carrier automatically assumes that a majority of Iraqi people agree with his position on the invasion of Iraq. It seemed clear that most Iraqis wanted the war to proceed because this was a good case for invasion. It is testimony to how deeply ingrained Gulf War Syndrome Mark II has become that this fact sounds alien to so many, despite the evidence for it having been in the public domain for more than a year. It is not too late for liberals and leftists in the United States and across the developed world to support their allies in Iraq. Gulf War Syndrome Mark II is easily treated.
