  •  no problem but I would suggest Juan Cole (0+ / 0-)

    as an excellent resource for information on the area.  As far as the attitudes of our foreign policy establishment, I find they make quite a few missteps in the long term in a number of areas.  IMHO it comes from political appointees frequently getting in over their head vs the foreign policy professionals but that is just my opinion.  

    I would recommend Edward Said as a resource also to understand general Western attitudes towards that region at least since 1918 and I would argue since 1812 or so.

    OTOH I am weary after a long day and I may not be making a great deal of sense at this point. Thank you for your clarification; it is appreciated
