    Hmm just a thought but wasn't Lawrence run out of the Cairo Arab Bureau (FO), while the Gulf States including Mesopotamia by the India Office?? There's a whole debate right there about varying interests. Did Cox write a book or do we just have his letters??? Maybe Lawrence's article in the Times of 1920 might be more fitting than the Seven Pillars...

    I still like the statement and respect the man who wrote it! I also like this one too.:
