Quote of the Day

In our age there is no such thing as 'keeping out of politics.' All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.-- George Orwell

“I would rather be a swineherd at Amagerbro and be understood by the swine than be a poet and be misunderstood by people.” ― Søren Kierkegaard, Either/Or: A Fragment of Life

Fisk Unbound

The best commentary I've read to date on the big problem in the Middle East.

It is not surprising that Robert Fisk penned this, for he has done outstanding reportorial work since beginning his high-profile career at the height of "The Troubles" in Belfast in 1972.

The chickens have come home to roost as the Middle East seeks something, anything relative to its own long-due self-actualization and oil-centric autonomy.

Sykes-Picot is indeed dead, or is that a nuke falling on my head?
