Paper instructions:
Need to answer both question. They are techinically “essay” questions, but the professor doesnt care how long is it as long you supports your answers.

1. If wars arise from incomplete information, what prevents states from revealing their true capabilities and resolve to adversaries? For example, before the 2003 invasion of Iraq, why did Saddam Hussein hide the fact that he did not have weapons of mass destruction? Why did some countries believe that he had no such weapons, while others were certain that he did?

2. The authors of your textbook suggest a number of factors that could reduce the likelihood of war (raising costs, increasing transparency, outside enforcement, dividing indivisible goods). Which of these factors could powerful states such as the United States influence to reduce the likelihood of war? What barriers might prevent the United States from taking these steps?
