Who lost Iraq?

And those peripheral elements who fought for him may well continue to do so with renewed vigour, out of revenge."

Enron: a cautionary TNC tale

Yasir Arafat – A Symbol of Freedom

"On going US-led forces operation in Iraq, the systematic destruction of Iraq, the helpless and weaken conditions of Arab Leaders, all this made Yasir Araft disheartened and mentally and physically distressed. Yet he never compromised with the Israeli authorities."
