Absolutey a great book.
I just read this one, and Legacy of ashes. US seems to be in big trouble.
Good luck US.
Skip your two party system, and become a real democracy :-)
A more neutral view
US and Israel are the heroes, the international left (who ever they are) are the bad ones and the extremist Muslims must die.
He should have stopped the story before starting with the Hamas part. He should stop watching Fox
The mention of ISIS/ISIL or IS (Idiotic State) have chemical weapons, gain from Iraq. Since 2003 US led coalition forces search Iraq for WMD, and found nothing. Now some Jihadist invade Iraq, and find them in les than a year?? And where is the ISIS M1A1?
When democratic nations put their own soldiers on trial, for committing war crimes, we do that because we are free democratic nations. If we don't charge our owns if they commit crimes, we are no better than the foe, and will become like them. Remember, You are innocent until proven otherwise.

That I really thought, that it was a personal history from the author. It was so realistic.
He is easy to hear and understand. I liked the Afghan pronunciation, it helped.
religious, please read
The way that Richard make things logical
All of it.
It made me laugh sometimes, and wondering of, how the Christians, Muslims, Jews ect. can believe in a god.
I mistook the book for a story about the battle of Gallipoli.
I'm just a big fan of Peter Byrne
It was a story abut a great man, who spend most of his life, improving the life of the working class.
No doubt that Alec Campbell was a great man. But the battle of Gallipoli was a tiny bit of his life. Maybe not in his mind, but at least in time spend there. So the front cover of the book, is kind of misleading, since there where other things in his life, that took a great deal of his life. The Unions and the sailing. I was searching for a book about the battle of Gallipoli and about the daily life of the ANZAC troops. I just got the wrong book.
That It gave me some new reasons to be opponent of religion.
Mr. Hitchens could have been more clear in his reading. He mumbled a bit :-).
Unfortunately for me, I don't speak that well English. So there where some part of the book, that I didn't understand. But I can hardly blame that on Mr. Hitchens :-). After listening to his book, I began viewing a lot of his debates on the internet. I have then become a great fan of him. What a loss, that he just died. But searching on his name, gave me a lot of other persons with the same views. So all is not lost ;-).
