“Under The Black Flag”—Taki Takes off the Gloves.
From Taki Theodoracopulos, a founding editor of The American Conservative:
I have never seen a more ridiculous situation, where the weak and the cowardly but extremely rich—the Saudis and Qataris—have managed to upset the whole balance of power once the military genius of George W. Bush offered them the opportunity by doing away with one of the few strongmen of the region who had managed to keep sectarian violence to a minimum.
The one man who stood in their way was Assad, and of course Iran was a problem too.
Needless to say I am 100% for Assad’s forces in view of his acceptance of Christianity and other religions, where as the former will behead and crucify anyone not adhering to a strict Islamist agenda the moment power lands in their blood dripping hands.
Let’s face it. We’re in a mess as long as we refuse to deal with Iran, an ancient country that could solve all the problems of the Middle East and rid us of that terrible plague that is Saudi Arabia. Let’s start by telling Bibi to shut the hell up.
