The Long Road Home from Iraq
A Video Lecture Delivered on April 9, 2008.
Dr. Jack Miles, Pulitzer Prize winning author of God: A Biography and bestselling sequel Christ: A Crisis in the Life of God, was MacAurthur Fellow 2002-2007, and in 2008 joined UCI as Distinguished Professor of English and Religious Studies. A Senior Fellow in Religion and International Affairs of the Pacific Council, Jack observes that since tribalism and religious interests in the Sunni, Shia, and Kurds take precedence over any sense of nationalism, being "the Iraqis," withdrawal will need to account for these differences, the destabilization of U.S. invasion created in the Middle East, the importance of diplomatic relations with Iran, and how this affects "oil," the ultimate motive.
