Description - The Greatest Threat Iraq, Weapons Of Mass Destruction, And The Crisis Of Global Security by Richard Butler

"A scathing indictment of the bumbling and cynical diplomacy of the United Nations peacekeeping efforts and a scary, vivid documentary on the distance that a madman's war-making obsession can travel when it goes unchecked." -The Houston Chronicle. The Greatest Threat is the "brutally candid" inside story of the West's failure to stop Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein from building weapons of mass destruction (Booklist). The West may face no greater enemy than Saddam, and yet, as Butler makes so clear in this riveting and troubling book, the West would rather ignore his regime than face the problem.As the head of UNSCOM, the special United Nations Commission assigned to inspect Iraq for weapons violations, Butler was the West's "sheriff"-but his authority, and the world's security, was continually undermined from behind his back. Iraq was left armed and dangerous, to its own people, to the surrounding nations, and to the rest of the world. The trade paperback edition of The Greatest Threat has been updated with a new chapter on new developments in the world's relationship with Iraq.
