    Interesting book that came out last year.

    IMO a book like this coupled with the study of Ayatollah Khomeini would make some great theories. Bush's blunders aside...these people (hardliners) are determined to run their country their way.
    Hard to argue that they don't deserve to run their ancestral homeland except the whole world has their claws in Iraq.

    There is a lot of truth in the excerpt you posted. The colonial powers (GB & France0 viewed this as a way to expand their empires. The tribal issues go beyond Iraq into other countries in the ME.
