Item description for Ethics and the Gulf War: Religion, Rhetoric, and Righteousness by Kenneth L. Vaux...
The war on the ground and in the air over Kuwait and Iraq was not the only Gulf War being fought in early 1990, argues the author of this book. George Bush and Saddam Hussein were also battling for public opinion and for the perception of legitimacy for their actions, and in doing so, both men appealed to the "just war" theory of their religious traditions. The book discusses the great "just war" traditions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, evaluating the key events of the war in the light of the religious rhetoric used by both sides.
