Arthur Borden's A Better Country demonstrates why America was right to confront Saddam Hussein. This book analyzes the public debate over Iraq to show how partisanship has obscured the purposes of the war effort and promoted a mistaken image of American power both domestically and abroad.
A Better Country reminds us that, stretching back to the presidency of Jimmy Carter and before, there had been a broad consensus over the touchstone issues of Iraq, the Middle East, and the unmentionable reality of oil - until political argument became degraded by charges of betrayal and wholesale deception.
Written by a veteran of World War II and of the many political crises since, this book is underlined by a personal narrative about the meaning of American and of American power at its best. It renews the principle that, in rising to address security risks in an uncertain world, America itself becomes a better country.
