Michael Scott Doran "Somebody elses Civil War"
just doing some study for a political science exam next wk (notes are already 37 pages of typed notes and I'm still not done - gaaaahhhh brain pain) and I read a really interesting and relevant article by a guy called Michale Scott Dorran. It's about the ideology of extremist Islamist groups, focusing specifically on Osama Bin Laden. It focuses on the rationalisation behind Al Qaedas attacks on the US and looks at how previous US administrations policy in the Middle East in part precipitated these attacks. I am unable to post it because its about 18 pages long - but its an easy read - so I'd be happy to e-mail the PDF file to anyone thats interested. I realllllllllly recommend you read it!
