in 2003, Amy urged caution in the Iraq war, warning that in Iraq, "everything, even freedom and wealth, has ethnic ramifications". Because Iraq's Shia folks formed a 60 percent majority long oppressed by Saddam, "democracy" could actually catalyze historic enmities, with elections not producing a unified Iraq but instead a Shia government that excludes and oppresses Sunnis. these circumstances would be ripe for the rise of "powerful fundamentalist movements" that are "extremely anti-American".

Unfortunately, this precise scenario unfolded.

Amy is truly a remarkable visionary!
