Author Thakur, Ramesh Title War in Our Time: Reflections on Iraq, Terrorism and Weapons of Mass Destruction Volume/Issue No. 4 Publication Date 2007-04-08 Place of Publication Tokyo Publisher United Nations University Press Pages 7 Language eng Abstract n this policy brief, based on the book with the same title, Ramesh Thakur argues that Iraq confi rms that, as with terrorism, a war of aggression is an unacceptable tactic no matter how just the cause. What was meant as an awesome demon- stration of limitless American might and willpower turned out to prove the limits of American power in defeating even a small band of insur- gents fi ghting urban warfare with their own bodies as the primary weapon-delivery system. The fallout with respect to Iran suggests that the United Nations cannot contemp- tuously be brushed aside as irrele- vant and disposable in one crisis, only to be lifted out of the rubbish bin of history, dusted off and put to use in another.
