This chapter analyses the interaction of the four narratives when faced with the short-term policy issue of the 2003 Iraq War. Three very different pictures emerged from the narratives' representation of the Iraqi conflict: one of imperialist aggression, one of illegal conflict and one of regrettable war. This chapter explains that there was no sustained attempt within the Irish debate to initiate and develop a European discourse vis à vis this conflict and discusses the fissure between the Irish and Global discourses over attitudes towards the United Nations.

Keywords:   Iraq War, narrative, imperialist aggression, illegal conflict, regrettable war, European discourse, United Nations
