Tariq Ali on Barack Obama, Pakistan and Afghanistan

If the current euphoria over Barack Obama's trip to Ghana is an indication of how popular this US President is around the world right now, then listening to Tariq Ali's sobering assessment of the 'through train' of US neocolonialism in the so-called 'AfPak' region is certainly worth a watch/listen.

DISCLAIMER This is a clip of Tariq Ali speaking at the recent 'Marxism 2009' conference in London, and although I do agree with a lot of what he has to say, I am in no way a Marxist.
