REVIEW: The Struggle for Iraq’s Future
By Lt. Col. Brian L. Steed, U.S. Army, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, February 11, 2015
MILITARY REVIEW: “Al-Ali pulls no punches when describing the incompetence and ignorance of the U.S. government, military, contractors, and businessmen who did much to create an environment in which the violent extremists and the incompetence and corrupt Iraqi politicians could destroy what was left of Iraq after the mismanagement of Saddam Hussein and the “evils” of the US sponsored international blockade. This is not a book for the faint of heart or the thin skinned. It is, however, a book that paints a unique picture–Iraq from the perspective of Iraqis.
“Citizens and service members need to read this book and take heed of the dangers that come from executing plans created from ignorance and developing policies at the behest of disgruntled exiles.”
