COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY NATALIE NOUGAYREDE IN THE GUARDIAN

 

“I see light in the darkness”

Thank you, Reverend Nougayrède.

How do you write such lines and expect anyone to keep reading?

I guess one should be a little grateful for providing a warning about the nature of the stuff to follow.

The words about Putin and Aleppo seem from a geopolitical fantasy world about Middle Earth or the Kingdom of God, bearing absolutely no relationship to what is happening.

Al Nusrah – an al Qaeda affiliate and bloody terrorists just as surely as ISIS – is entrenched in East Aleppo, and Putin is going after them, working with the forces of the country’s legitimate government, unlike America who bombs where they are not even legally present.

Oh, but I forget, al Nusrah is blessed and supported and supplied by America – and, as it happens, Israel, who takes their wounded to hospitals in northern Israel for treatment.

Undoubtedly, that fact provides the motivation for writing this fantasy.
