Abstract: The objectives of the study are to disclose the hidden agenda of the United States administration and the role of American strategy planning institutions in justifying the war on Iraq. It tracks the timeline of war planning towards Iraq occupation, starting from the Gulf War II, economic embargo and weapon inspection programs, through the latest war that ended up with full occupation of Iraq. The study analyzes the basics and strategic values of the United States’ motives in declaring war on Iraq, and how the American administration manipulates the mass media to lead the world astray during the conflict. Furthermore, the impacts of war on Arab and Islamic countries and the point of view of these countries regarding the war were also analyzed. To achieve these objectives, an analytical desktop approach has been adopted hereof as research methodology that relies on collecting information from readily available sources published in Arabic and English. The target is to unveil the truth about the publicly announced American incentives behind the war, and to explore the potential relationship between these incentives and the typical political ideologies about Muslims and Arabs pre-determined in the minds of the White House’s decision makers. In addition, the study investigated the response and stand of Arab and Muslim countries regarding the war. The temporal limit of the study starts from Gulf War II and extends to Gulf War III. The novelty of the study lies in its concentration on exposing the latent plans of the United States to takeover Iraq, and in its approach in collecting, synthesizing and management of the information in order to emphasize and enhance the research objectives. The outcomes of the study are varied and indicated to the following important points: poor performance and relatively insignificant role of Joint Arab Defence Council in managing the crisis and warding off the war; the American incentives were not apparently limited only to meet the short-termed political objectives of the war; but also to meet the long-termed objectives, such as controlling the oil resources of Iraq, ensuring the security of Israel, and enfeebling the recent widespread Islamic awakening in the region thought to be a serious threat to western systems; and the weakness of Arab and Islamic countries in taking serious decisions to stop foreign occupation of Iraq. Finally, this study calls for an effective political formula for cooperation between Arab and Islamic countries to protect their strategic interests in encountering United States’ plans in this part of the world.
