[Extract] Johann Arnason and I emphatically disagree – not about Islam or the Middle East, but about America, what it stands for, and how it can be read.

The Iraq War is 'proof positive': an act of stupid imperialism by a country hooked on oil led by a crass Texan carpetbagger personally obsessed with occupying Baghdad.
