What disappointed you about The Tail Wags the Dog?
In the beginning the author seems overly biased and repeated blames the Obama administration for much of the problems even though clearly the issues in the middle east are long running and complex. Further reading seems less factual and more propagandist in nature. Although I welcome alternative interpretations, I was not interested in what appeared to be agenda based propaganda.

Did Jonathan Coote do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?
It might not have been Jonathan Coote's idea to do vocal impressions of the various leaders, his director could have been responsible for that but whoever came up with it, the effect was ludicrous. It was simply intrusive to hear Churchill's opinions delivered in a pantomime Churchillian accent but the whole thing became downright surrealistic when the narrator bottled out on doing an appropriate accent for the Arab speakers -- probably on the grounds that it might sound 'racist' -- so while some Frenchman talks with a French accent and Obama comes across all educated mid-western, Yassir Arafat holds forth in classless, flat English. Complete nonsense. He didn't need to do any accents for any of them.
