This is the story of a small group of soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division’s fabled 502nd Infantry Regiment—a unit known as “the Black Heart Brigade.” Deployed in late 2005 to Iraq’s so-called Triangle of Death, a veritable meat grinder just south of Baghdad, the Black Hearts found themselves in arguably the country’s most dangerous location at its most dangerous time. Hit by near-daily mortars, gunfire, and roadside bomb attacks, suffering from a particularly heavy death toll, and enduring a chronic breakdown in leadership, members of one Black Heart platoon—1st Platoon, Bravo Company, 1st Battalion—descended, over their year-long tour of duty, into a tailspin of poor discipline, substance abuse, and brutality. Four 1st Platoon soldiers would perpetrate one of the most heinous war crimes U.S. forces have committed during the Iraq War—the rape of a fourteen-year-old Iraqi girl and the cold-blooded execution of her and her family. Three other 1st Platoon soldiers would be overrun at a remote outpost—one killed immediately and two taken from the scene, their mutilated corpses found days later booby-trapped with explosives. Black Hearts is an unflinching account of the epic, tragic deployment of 1st Platoon. Drawing on hundreds of hours of in-depth interviews with Black Heart soldiers and first-hand reporting from the Triangle of Death, Black Hearts is a timeless story about men in combat and the fragility of character in the savage crucible of warfare. But it is also a timely warning of new dangers emerging in the way American soldiers are led on the battlefields of the twenty-first century. From the Hardcover edition.

Owen W. Gilman Jr. stresses the US experience of war in the twenty-first century and argues that wherever and whenever there is war, there will be imaginative responses to it, especially the recent wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Since the trauma of September 11, the experience of Americans at war has been rendered honestly and fully in a wide range of texts--creative nonfiction and journalism, film, poetry, and fiction. These responses, Gilman contends, have packed a lot of power and measure up even to World War II's literature and film. Like few other books, Gilman's volume studies these new texts--among them Kevin Powers's debut novel The Yellow Birds and Phil Klay's short stories Redeployment, along with the films The Hurt Locker, American Sniper, and Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk. For perspective, Gilman also looks at some touchstones from the Vietnam War. Compared to a few of the big Vietnam books and films, this new material has mostly been read and watched by small audiences and generated less discussion. Gilman exposes the circumstances in American culture currently preventing literature and film of our recent wars from making a significant impact. He contends that Americans" inclination to demand distraction limits learning from these compelling responses to war in the past decade. According to Gilman, where there should be clarity and depth of knowledge, we instead face misunderstanding and the anguish endured by veterans betrayed by war and our lack of understanding.

Justice and the Just War Tradition articulates a distinctive understanding of the reasons that can justify war, of the reasons that cannot justify war, and of the role that those reasons should play in the motivational and attitudinal lives of the citizens, soldiers, and statesmen who participate in war. Eberle does so by relying on a robust conception of human worth, rights, and justice. He locates this theoretical account squarely in the Just War Tradition. But his account is not merely theoretical: Justice and the Just War Tradition has a variety of practical aims, one of the most important of which is to serve as an aid to moral formation. The hope is that citizens, soldiers, and statesmen whose emotions and aspirations have been shaped by the Just War Tradition will be able to negotiate violent communal conflict in ways that respect the demands of justice. So Justice and the Just War Tradition articulates a theoretically satisfying and practically engaging account of the reasons that count in favor of war. Moreover, Eberle develops that account by engaging contemporary theorists, both philosophical and theological, by according due deference to venerable contributors to the Just War Tradition, and by integrating insights from military memoire, the history of war, and the author's experience of teaching ethics at the United States Naval Academy.

SUMMARY Most readers in worldwide are thinking that Iraqis living in high life with great bounty. This thinking is related to Iraq is one of the top and front of oil countries in the world. In contrast the Iraqi citizens live below the poverty line for successive tragedies. Furthermore, many disasters have passed Iraq since the Iraqi-Iranian war which began in 1980 and continued 8 years. In addition, the occupation of Kuwait by Iraq in 1990 increased society problems. Following that, sanctions and the economic blockade period had continued more than 12 years. Moreover, the period of the invasion and occupation of Iraq which led by USA between 2003 and 2011. The worst, governments that came loyal to Iran could not control on administration corruption, murder and militias. 1/3 Iraqi families are homeless and abandoning the country to Europe. In addition, the poverty rate exceeded 30%. All of these circumstances have made Iraqis living on garbage heaps. Moreover, tens of thousands of graduated colleges, institutes and master's and doctoral degrees are still without work. In a country that floats on lakes of oil and gas. Therefore, this book and the following books will show readers worldwide the great tragedies experienced on the Iraqi people. Poverty, hunger, Children deprived of schools, diseases, epidemic diseases, unemployment, disabled and injured people by bombing cars, missing persons, ignorance and illiteracy. Now, Iraq has become worse after it was the flag at the forefront of the world. These reasons and others encouraged me to write this book and others. This book will review the following circumstances. Chapter 1: General introduction. Chapter 2: Invasion and occupation of Iraq in 2003 by USA. Chapter 3: Democrats responsibility. Chapter 4: USA and false democracy in Iraq. Chapter 5: Sunni provinces are safety valve of Iraq. Chapter 6: Society problems and diseases as results of invasion and occupation of Iraqi. Chapter 7: Who is responsible? Chapter 8: Urgent reforms are necessary to save Iraq. Chapter 9: general conclusions. Next book will explain in more details (Poverty in Iraq). We authored this book to focus on the most important psychological aspects, humanitarian and social and material hit the Iraqis as a result of the US invasion of Iraq since 2003: 1. Role of Ahmed Chalabi, (the godfather of the occupation), the leader of the Iraqi National Conference Party, its role in convincing the US administration and intelligence, in reverse and distortion facts that Iraq possesses weapons of mass destruction, which accelerated the US administration in the invasion of Iraq. 2. The book refutes US administration argument (allegation) that Iraq possesses weapons of mass destruction. After their occupation of Iraq, Americans themselves demonstrated that Iraq was free of these weapons. Disclosing the public opinion laid this allegation. 3. The book refutes the failure of the US administration to convince the Iraqis and the whole world to accept the false democracy. 4. This false Democracy encouraged growing of armed militias, Islamic State and terrorism (supported by Iran) in Iraq. After Iraq was free from them completely. 5. This false Democracy caused persecution of Sunnis in Iraq (displace). 6. The loss of security and safety after the dissolution of the Iraqi army, police, institutions and ministries by Bremer the American governor. 7. The increasing Iranian influence. 8. Displacement millions of Iraqis Sunni from their areas to Kurdistan and Europe. 9. The full destruction of infrastructure and the lack of electricity, water health and education services. 10. The increasing rate of unemployment. 11. Spread of financial and administrative corruption in all parts of state. 12. Spread of diseases among the community and at the forefront of cancerous diseases as a result of radiation emitted from bombs and explosives that led to distortions in births and the high proportion of infertility in women and men
