The new book, "IKE's Gamble"

The whole premise of this new book is flawed.  It is predicated on the assumption that Eisenhower intervened in Suez in order to appease or help Nasser while in reality he wanted to project US imperialist power and to limit the ambition of the British in the Middle East.  And he so exaggerated IKE's approaches to Nasser, when Kennedy was the one who did make more approaches to Nasser before being restrained by 1) US imperialism; 2) Zionist pressures; 3) American reactionary alliances in the region.
