Gwynne Dyers' strength is in his ability to analyze and discuss with amazing clarity subjects that are extremely complex. This book is another example of his outstanding intellectual skills. This book looks at Iraq from the point of view of 'terrorists' and what they hope to achieve as well as what America stands to gain or lose. Importantly it discusses the values of neo-conservative Americans and the potentially devastating effects and consequences their myopic ideas could have on the rest of the world. This book is a description of a global problem with disastrous results and a prescription of how to avoid them. Everybody with a stake in the future, i.e. children, must read this book. It is that important.
Gywnne has a great sense of history and how it adds much deeper understanding to political decisions/events. He has a great grasp of the complex relationships between nations, religions and world powers and describes them clearly, but often in ways that contradict the common knowledge of main stream media. He doesn't shy away from controversy and as a result, is often marginalized by the chief editors of the larger media empires (often a sign of good journalism)
