Download Hour1 Download Hour2 Americans who believe Bush when he says that US forces have been sent to Iraq to liberate the people there are no doubt surprised that Iraqis are putting up a fierce resistance, outgunned though they are. Many people in this country may be naive about the motivations of the powerful men who control the fates of nations, but the peoples of the Middle East are not. They have been subjected to several centuries of invasion and colonization by outsiders claiming to be liberating them when their real interest was liberating their land and resources. This week we hear from two Middle Eastern scholars analyzing US foreign policy, the war on terrorism and the invasion of Iraq from the perspective of those who have been on the receiving end of the west's tender and liberating mercies.
