New NPIHP Documents Show Iraqi Responses to US Deterrence Signaling before 1991 and 2003 Wars

Jun 06, 2013

The Nuclear Proliferation International History Project, along with the Conflict Records Research Center, have released 26 Iraqi documents from Saddam Hussein’s regime on the Wilson Center's Digital Archive. The documents, along with full English translations, illuminate Iraqi responses to US deterrence signaling before, during and after the 1991 Gulf War and the 2003 invasion of Iraq. They were released for “Deterring New Nuclear Weapons States?,” a workshop co-sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson Center and Stanford University’s Center for International Security and Cooperation (CISAC).
