Love thy enemy
- I like how I know nothing about him [Bashar al-Assad]. This is not proof that he has no personality but proof that I am ill informed by my media. I like how the only other Syrian leader I know is Nimrod, which literally means, I was told, mighty hunter in opposition to God. That’s as far as my primary knowledge of Syria goes without consulting Google. I basically only know that it is one of those once mighty empires that once existed in ancient history.
- I like how Bashar al-Assad still has friends. Unlike Saddam and Gaddafi those friend’s have come to his aid when others tried to bully him out of power and totally destabilize his country.
- Most of all, I love how even faced with the most sophisticated and well funded terrorist/freedom fighter organization [wherever you stand] in the history of the middle east he has not throw in the towel yet.
The West needs love too
- I love how the US likes to give other countries a helping hand ; even when they vehemently deny that they need one. A friend’s frown is truly better than a fool’s smile.
- France and the United Kingdom; I love how in spite of the fact that you once had a global empire, some would say caliphate of your own, you can still wholeheartedly lecture those who would like to relive your glory days themselves. Two rights definitely equate going backwards.
- Saudi Arabia, I love how you keep an iron grip on power and defend your cartel by selling cheap oil and driving out the competition. Proof positive that soft power has its place.
What should we do in the face of terrorism you might ask? I say; “Plant a tree, raise a child and love your neighbor as yourself. Against these things there is no law and no means to resist.”
