Have you read, "The game of Nations."
by Miles Copeland?
He was an American advisor to Nasser
and it was written during that time.
Not a very pretty picture of American foreign policy.

Thanks for the ping! Very interesting. Ike thought if he pressured Israel, the UK, and France to withdraw that Nasser and company would be grateful to the US and become our buddies against the Soviets in the Cold War (similar to what the current administration is doing in trying to get Abbas and company to be our "buddies" and be "democratic"). Nasser and company laughed at us and became more pro-Soviet. We never seem to get it, that most Arab countries don't want to be "buddies" with the USA, what they want above all else is the elimination of Israel, one way or another.
