Re: "You can never be China's friend" : D. Goldman

Neverfail, You might want to look up Venice and Florence, and see how they were run in the renaissance. Not being democratic in the modern western model, they were nevertheless pretty democratic, in the sense that people had a true voice in the running of public affairs. And Portugal had its versio...

Re: "You can never be China's friend" : D. Goldman

Probably. But I would still like to know what those similarities are supposed to be... You very likely invited Cassowary to explain the comparison and I am also waiting to read his take. But the temptation for me to butt in is irresistible - so please pardon me if I appear rude. https://www.asiatim...

Re: The Milo Doctrine is working

I would not count any Muslim land as a friend of my country. YOUR country does not have a Muslim land right on its front doorstep that is demographically several times bigger than your own like we do Milo. The name of the country is Indonesia and so far our relationship with it has been fairly amic...

Re: "You can never be China's friend" : D. Goldman

Chinese people have no friends? What nonsense. I thought that particular observation by Spengler might be a little suspect too. Yet despite that possible omission; is he wrong in identifying Chinese society as one of dog-eat-dog competitiveness within: to the point where it is a society of ever amb...

China is far too big and too important for us to assess it and its performance in the superficial and irrational way used by David Goldman.
Did you expect an interview to produce an encyclopedia sized book on the topic?

Re: Caroline Glick

I told you exactly why Trump sent in the troops to Syria in my previous post. I put a link to Kurd Israeli relation in that post. You know what I think? You didn't even bother to read my post that you called "Bullocks". So from now I why should I take anything you say seriously? I can see that you ...

Re: "You can never be China's friend" : D. Goldman

Spengler's comparison was with a Sicilian Mafia cell. Complete nonsense. Where is Goodman going to find these things?... Did you read the link interview in full? I did. It is still nonsense. Comparing China with the Mafia? I would think that Israel is a lot closer to the Mafia than China, but I'm s...

Re: The Milo Doctrine is working

On the state of Syria and (more broadly) of the Muddle East: Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall; all the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't put Humpty together again. You forgot the part where we spent $2 trillion trying! You are right there Milo. (Yet come to ...

Re: The Milo Doctrine is working

As America leaves Syria, Iran is not happy as you think It is the conceit of the commentariat that Iran is a winner of the latest mayhem in the Middle East—the departure of U.S. troops from Syria and the subsequent Turkish incursion. Yet the clerical oligarchs seem anxious about all that is happeni...
