Abstract
Dubious about UN inspections, the Bush Administration is poised to undertake a high-tech military intervention to oust Iraqi President Saddam
Hussein. Although some critics dispute that Saddam poses an imminent threat, and opinion is divided on whether the Iraqi people and troops will support Saddam or surrender to U.S. troops, the U.S. is preparing to deploy a wide array of high tech hardware, as well as an anti-Saddam propaganda campaign in order to enhance their prospects of success. Many neighboring Arab countries face domestic antiwar pressure and have specific concerns about the destabilizing effects of war in the region and domestically, U.S. opinion is likewise divided.
