    Article written in 1999, sorry it doesn't mention Clinton, and Bush II was only a gleam in Haley Barbour's eye. It talks about the failure of Arab armies in modern wars. It adresses areas I cound interesting.

    Why terrorism as opposed to direct confrontation is a preferred method of warfare.
    Why Iran with nukes i would not be a real problem, militarily.
    The cultural difficulties in building a midern army (aplicable to the issue of building an army in Iraq).
    The issues of saving face and 'humiliation' is addressed also.

    It might provide some insights on current events.
