Doomed To Repeat?

Rashid Khalidi has a new book on western imperialism and Iraq. I heard him on the radio last night and I whole heartedly recommend Sean Hannity and Bill O'Liely read it. The problem is that Bill and Sean don't seem to have the attention span that would get them through. Imperialism has followed a remarkedly similar process since the French revolution. Khalidi's quotes from Napoleon, the British colonial authorities and Rummy are golden. Go to this site and read the 12 page summary. Resurrecting Empire: Western Footprints and America's Perilous Path in the Middle East, by Rashid Khalidi.
