"Without a strong American opposition we are doomed"–Renowned author and Middle East expert Tariq Ali gives a speech at Saint John the Divine in New York on October 14th, 2003. His latest book is "Bush in Babylon: The Recolonisation of Iraq." His book combines Iraqi and Arab and Iraqi history and world politics. Without knowing the past, he says, it is impossible to understand what is happening today and the history is presented as a warning to both occupier and resister. Tariq Ali began his speech by talking about there being two ways to deal with 9-11, one being political and one military.
