Musings On Iraq In The News


I was quoted by Paul iddon in “Is Iraq relying too heavily on elite special forces?” in Al Araby, and by Wladimir van Wilgenburg in "Shia paramilitary groups to enter Iraq's Tal Afar despite Turkey's Opposition" in ARA News. Was mentioned by Rudaw in "UN warns west Mosul residents at 'extreme risk'" and in "The fight for Mosul: An assessment of ISIS tactics, key vulnerabilities" by Mike Furlong for Fox News. That last article was also reprinted by Shafaaq News.

Several books on Iraq and the Middle East have mentioned my work as well. Iraq: People, History, Politics by Gareth Stansfield, Vanguard of the Imam: Religion, Politics, and Iran's Revolutionary Guards by Afshon Ostovar, Sectarian Politics in the Persian Gulf by Lawrence Potter, The Master Plan: ISIS, al-Qaeda, and the Jihadi Strategy for Final Victory by Brian Fishman, The Politics of International Intervention: The Tyranny of Peace by Mandy Turner and Florian Kuhn, ISIS: Battling the Menace by Patrick Cockburn, The Syrian Jihad: Al-Qaeda, the Islamic State and the Evolution of an Insurgency by Charles Lister.
