The Price of Victory: The Gulf War

Dr. Jamal A. Shurdom


The tragic events of the outcome of the bloody Gulf War, attracted the

attention of the world media. For whatever reasons, the Western media

succeeded in presenting the Gulf War only from an antagonistic and 

one-sided

perspective, obviously anti-Iraqi and personally, anti-President Saddam

Hussein.



Over 52 distinguished scientists and field experts contributed to the 

writing

of this book.



This book is an accumulation of scientific studies targeted to assess 

the

full scale damage done to civilian infrastructures by the Allied 

bombing.



It sheds light on the southern region of Iraq where much of the bombing 

took

place, and uses eyewitness reports about the strange effects of some 

very

sophisticated weapon technology used in the Gulf War. Besides the Iraqi

victims, other casualties were American, British troops and other 

people in

the region.



This book sheds light on the other side of the Gulf War story, from 

different

"unheard" political perspectives, in order to motivate the reader to 

compare

the outcome of these studies with other studies that the Western 

scientists

and experts have conducted.



More importantly, in this book, the outcome of the Gulf War has 

revealed a

different face of this most sophisticated technological and 

computerized war

against the Iraqi people. The story of the US and British who used 

depleted

Uranium (DU), better known as "the Gulf War Syndrome and the use of 

DU," is

being fully discussed. Over ten years later, little has been said about 

US

and British troops exposed to the use of antitank shells made from 

(DU), a

toxic radioactive substance.



This book calls for a World-Wide scientific effort to study and analyze 

the

devastating effects of depleted uranium (DU) used during the 1991 war 

against

Iraq, on man and environment.



This book will, also focus on the United Nations (UN) comprehensive 

economic

sanctions imposed on Iraq by the UN's Security Council in Resolution 

661 of

August 6, 1990. This book suggests that "perhaps the greatest problem 

now

facing the Middle East region is that of this horrified US led UN

comprehensive sanctions imposed against the Iraqi people." In this 

book, the

former US Attorney General, Ramsey Clark, describes the economic 

sanctions

as: "The most dangerous weapon of mass destruction."



The aftermath of the Gulf War presented a compelling spectacle of 

indignant

human suffering and an unacceptable devastation of the human perception 

of

humanity.



In the pages of this book the authors have tried, by the purely 

humanitarian

goal to diagnose the problem, come close to it, and suggest remedies 

and warn

of unpredictable future bloody consequences. It is up to world public 

opinion

and the members of the UN to decide how to react in the future to such

events.



This book is prepared, and edited by Dr. Jamal A. Shurdom, and 

published by

The Four Publisher, Inc., Winter Park, Florida, USA. It is designed to 

be

useful to researchers, scholars, students and public officials who need 

a

convenient compilation of different unheard views about the horrible

consequences of the Gulf War.



Since the Gulf War, Dr. Shurdom, the editor, has visited the State of 

Iraq

twice. He conducted a valuable field study research, visited schools,

hospitals, factories, farms, and downtown areas. He has talked with and

interviewed high ranking Iraqi officials and ordinary people from 

different

backgrounds in Iraqi society.
