The Syrian army is rapidly closing in on the rebels who are in control of the city, leaving a narrow corridor through which civilians are escaping on foot; Russian and Iranian support are tipping the balance in Assad's favor.01:04 06.02.16 | 1 comments
I haven't had much regard 4 Freidman's positions since he supported invasion/occupation of Iraq as cure all to middle east problems. His "new" suggestions regarding US withdrawing from working toward peace 4 Israel/Palestine is simply a return to the Bush years of a hands off policy except for the continuing annual $3 billion stream of financial aid to Israel from the US taxpayer. In other words Friedman supports the status quo of walls, illegal settlements, 2+ year siege of Gaza, & land grabs. Who knew!
