As the newly installed puppet regime in Iraq beings its period of rule, the resistance coming from within the Iraqi population grows bolder each day. With attacks being carried out against coalition forces, the assets of multinational companies and Iraqi collaborators, it seems that the resistance is far from a rag-tag bunch of malcontents. Tariq Ali argues that the US administration's latest imperial adventure has ignored the history of imperial conquest and that their bribes and threats to the "coalition of the shilling" will soon unravel if the resistance is not overcome. This outcome, Tariq Ali argues, will not come easily if at all.
Tariq Ali, born in Lahore, Pakistan is an internationally renowned writer. He is based in London where he is an editor of New Left Review. He's written more than a dozen books on world history and politics. In his spare time he is a filmmaker, playwright and novelist. His books include the worldwide bestsellers The Clash of Fundamentalisms: Crusades, Jihads and Modernity, The Clash of Fundamentalisms and Bush in Babylon. He spoke to a packed house in Melbourne Town Hall at an event organised by the Victorian Peace Network on June 28 2004.
