Francis Anthony Boyle is a human rights lawyer and professor of international law at the University Of Illinois College Of Law. He has served as counsel for Bosnia and Herzegovina and has supported the rights of Palestinians and indigenous peoples. Boyle has been critical of the U.S. interventionist foreign policy, especially humanitarian intervention.
Boyle was a critic of the foreign policy of former American President George W. Bush. In 2007 Boyle claimed that the G. W. Bush administration had been conducting criminal activities alongside associates in allied countries and that the administration would welcome conflict with Muslim and Arab states. He also claimed that American treatment of Muslims and Arabs since 9/11 was similar to that of the Japanese and Japanese Americans after Pearl Harbor.
American international legal expert Francis A. Boyle examines the imperial dimensions of U.S. policy in the Middle East, past and present. In a hard-hitting commentary well-grounded in fact and in law, Boyle addresses these questions: Did the U.S. break international law in relation to the Middle East before September 11th? After September 11th? How are U.S. actions affecting the UN system which it helped to launch in 1948? What are the implications for world peace? For American soldiers, American freedoms and economic well being? Should George W. Bush be impeached for lying in leading the nation to war?
This book discusses U.S. assistance to Iraq during the Iran/Iraq war, U.S. conduct of the 1990 Gulf War, and the recent wars in Afghanistan and Iraq in relation to their violation of the laws of neutrality, humanitarian law, the laws of war and the law of the U.S. Constitution. The concluding chapter includes draft articles for the impeachment of President George W. Bush.
