1 Clarke, Richard A. THE SCORPION'S GATE
Berkley 2006 042521298X / 9780425212981 Paperback Fine 
Some of us have learned to listen when Richard A. Clarke has something to s ay. As the long-time White House counterterrorism chief, he warned the U.S. Commission on National Security for the 21st Century in 1999 that terroris ts were coming. We listened, but when we passed the warning on to President Bush, he did not. Now Clarke comes with a novel that, even if you swallow only a portion of it, will keep you awake at night. It's basically about tu rmoil in the Middle East, threatening to lead to World War III between the United States and China involving -- guess what? -- oil. Reading The Scorpion's Gate will require you to contemplate the consequences of the fall of the House of Saud, indigenous democracy on the Arabian Peninsula in a successor government of moderate Islamists, the profound fissure between Sunni and Shiite Muslims, possible Chinese military intervention in the Middle East, America's disastrous energy policy, the costs of the Iraq War, the simple-minded U.S. understanding of the Middle East, and the political complexities of that region.
