"These letters have made no attempt to be objective. My goal was to give you the other side of the story, the non-statist side you are not likely to get anywhere else." —p164

From the Summary...
   - Few Americans have any idea what their government has done in foreign countries.
   - We are in a war between Europe and the Islamic world. European rulers started the war a thousand years ago in the Crusades, and the U.S. got into it during the Barbary Wars two centuries ago on 'the shores of Tripoli.'
   - In the Mideast, religion and politics are the same thing. This is a religious war.


Book Cover Uncle Eric Talks About The Thousand Year War The Thousand Year War in the Mideast
How It Affects You Today

by Richard J. Maybury

The Thousand Year War in the Mideast has been the cause of great shocks to our economy and investment markets. Oil embargoes, the Iranian hostage crisis, the Iraq-Kuwait war, the Caucasus Wars over the Caspian Sea oil basin, and September 11, 2001 are recent events in an ongoing war that began over a thousand years ago in the Mideast. Each has devastating effects on the world economy and investment markets. Unfortunately, the conflicts are likely to continue for decades to come.

Mr. Maybury explains how events on the other side of the world that occurred a thousand years ago can affect you more than events in your own hometown today. To successfully manage your career, business, and investments it is imperative that you understand the political and social history of the Mideast. Forewarned is forearmed.
