This blog is now a book
This blog is now a book with the title "Iraqi Letters: 2004-2006" available from Amazon.
This is what it says on the back cover:
The US invasion of Iraq in 2003 will be seen in the future as a turning point in the history of Iraq and the surrounding countries in the twenty-first century.
This book was written by an Iraqi with an eye for the consequences of that adventure by the United States driven by a variety of different forces within the States and elsewhere. It also unleashed a wide range of other forces. It addresses a number of issues relating to that event:
· The performance of the US Administration and army in Iraq and the numerous mistakes or misdeeds committed by both
· How Iraq itself and the different conflicts and forces operating in Iraq at the time were portrayed by the mass media
· The reasons the US invaded Iraq
· The American people
· Whether there were any solutions to that mess
