Library: DESTROYING WORLD ORDER: US Imperialism in the Middle East Before and After September 11

By Francis A. Boyle

Francis Anthony Boyle, a human rights lawyer and professor of international law at the University Of Illinois College Of Law, has dedicated his career to advocating for the rights of various groups, including Bosnia and Herzegovina, Palestinians, and indigenous peoples. Notably, he has been a vocal critic of U.S. interventionist foreign policy, particularly in the context of humanitarian intervention.

Boyle's critique extends to former President George W. Bush's foreign policy, where he asserted that the administration engaged in criminal activities alongside allies. In 2007, he expressed concerns about the administration's willingness to escalate conflicts with Muslim and Arab states. Drawing parallels, Boyle argued that the treatment of Muslims and Arabs post-9/11 resembled the discriminatory practices against Japanese and Japanese Americans after Pearl Harbor.

In his comprehensive analysis, international legal expert Francis A. Boyle delves into the imperial dimensions of U.S. policy in the Middle East, examining historical and contemporary aspects. Addressing crucial questions, Boyle explores whether the U.S. violated international law in the Middle East pre- and post-9/11 and assesses the impact of U.S. actions on the UN system established in 1948. He also considers the implications for world peace, American soldiers, freedoms, and economic well-being. Additionally, Boyle raises the question of whether President George W. Bush should be impeached for alleged deception leading the nation into war.

The book extensively covers U.S. involvement in Iraq during the Iran/Iraq war, the conduct of the 1990 Gulf War, and the more recent conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq. Boyle critically analyzes these events in relation to violations of neutrality laws, humanitarian law, laws of war, and the U.S. Constitution. The concluding chapter provides draft articles for the impeachment of President George W. Bush, encapsulating Boyle's perspective on the legal implications of U.S. actions in the Middle East.
