Re: Two conflicting views on Syria's future.

We're talking about the Islamic Middle East here . . . All of these geopolitical ruminations will come to naught. ISIS and any number of savage outfits will arise out of the sands like snakes to destroy whatever they perceive as not being compatible with what they believe is the true way to Allah. ...

Re: Two conflicting views on Syria's future.

I have tried to convince Sertorio that Syria has a bleak future but unfortunately Sertorio still insists on riding his favorite hobby horse. Don't knock riding favorite horses it can be lots of fun.... On a serious note, those Suni Arabs brought in by Erdman are supplying more "rebels" and with Tur...

Assad, an minority Allawite (a sect of Shia Islam) has used the "civil war" aka another site of the continual SuShi war to clens as many as was possible Sunning Arabs from Syria and replace them with Shia Musls. 2. With as many as half a million killed in S...

Re: US Foreign Policy

I think that Trump is right to allow Turkey to enter the fight on behalf of the Sun Arabs (and for its own...). The balance was destroyed with the removal of Saddam Husain of Iraq - a first class blunder of the US making. That allowed the Shia Arabs to take over and try to dominate the ME. Taking do...

Re: Bashar al-Assad's Syria

Actually more like mercenaries for benefit Erdugan being their longstanding enemy it makes sense to join forces with Bashar. They worked for the US before but Trump is not interested anymore. In fact by genius or chance he has found the only formula that has and can bring about stability (but not p...

Re: Israel

This is several weeks old - sorry, but I just came across it . . . "Noblesse Oblige" http://anthropoetics.ucla.edu/views/vw630/ ". . . increasingly, Jewish history, and even the historical destiny of nationalism, is being made in Israel itself." Thanks Jim. Interesting point of view but a hard read...

Re: Caroline Glick

Had you bothered to read Glick's article, you would have discovered that the "Jewish controlled" news media are generally supportive of left-wing interests , which as she points out are in opposition to Republican (including POTUS) support for Israel. I read it Jim. Despite being allegedly supporti...

Re: Caroline Glick

Dagbay, I doubly curse the memory of Adolf Hitler. Not only because the bastard sent over 6 million Jews to their death but because by so doing he made the emergence of a Jewish state inevitable. I draw your attention to Resolution 181: passed by the United Nations General Assembly in November 1947...
