EARLY COMMENTS ‘This is a magnificent exposé of the lies that propelled the criminal attack on Iraq.’ John Pilger ‘As the controversy over the war and its aftermath deepens, this is an immediate, detailed and illuminating analysis that brings together a remarkable range of material. Milan Rai does us all a service by providing so much of the evidence that is fuelling that controversy.’ Paul Rogers, Professor of Peace Studies, Bradford University SUMMARY Building on the success of his previous book WAR PLAN IRAQ, anti-war activist Milan Rai has charged up new and disturbing facts that the warmongers would rather we forgot about. 95 per cent new material, REGIME UNCHANGED is an angry battery of arguments for preventing the re-writing of history. The first half of REGIME UNCHANGED documents step-by-step the way in which Washington undermined and finally shut down the UN weapons inspectors’ efforts to disarm Iraq peacefully, just as they were on the brink of a new and decisive phase of inspections. It sets out in full for the first time the mystery of the Most Censored Document of 2003: the UNMOVIC Draft Work Programme, launched and torpedoed on the day President Bush issued his ultimatum to Saddam Hussein. The second half of the book presents damning evidence that leading members of Saddam Hussein’s Ba‘athist regime were deliberately restored to power in Iraq in the first month after ‘liberation’. A pattern familiar from US and UK policy in liberated territories after the Second World War (documented in REGIME UNCHANGED): denigration and demobilization of the resistance movements and restoration of collaborators and leaders of fascist regimes. REGIME UNCHANGED demonstrates unequivocally that this was a war based on lies. This was not a war for disarmament or for ‘regime change’, but for power.
