Next Book??

I saw Hitchens' review of this book today.

The book is The Occupation of Iraq: Winning the War, Losing the Peace by Ali A. Allawi.

This could be interesting. Hitchens' conclusion is that the problems in Iraq were inevitable. He thinks the US would have been drawn in at some point.

I think it's much easier in hindsight to see the signs of decay in the country. I knew there were problems in infrastructure and some ethinic tensions, but I certainly didn't appreciate the depth before the invasion.
