Originally posted 2008-05-25 11:08:38 -0400, this piece appears to relate to the current happenings in and around the Middle East at this time. In light of the recent speech by President Obama, I thought it would be good to resurrect and ask folks to read through. -- GH

What follows is an excerpt reprinted from the piece Danse Macabre 03: The Return of Ja(a)far [Donald Rumsfeld], which was published by ePluribus Media in December 2006.
With all the back-and-forth rumbles about Iraq, Iran, peak oil, the "long war" and such, I thought a reprint of this particular section would be enlightening. It briefly review a paper written by Rudy Jaafar regarding that author's perspective and commentary about the US role in the determination of the social and political future of the Middle East.
I strongly urge people to read the original piece by Rudy Jaafar in its entirety, and request that people add -- in comments -- any additional insights or references that could help educate the public about the regions cultures and history.
