The Mess They Made
I just powered through this book, and it was well worth the money. Dyer's book on the Iraq war is very analytical, quite objective, and gets to the heart of the matter. He discusses the likely scenario's following the U.S. [defeat] withdrawal, and the ramifications for the region. Question: Want to really know why the U.S. is in Iraq? Read this book.
Answer: It 'ain't just about the oil.
You can also find his columns updated semi-regularly here.
