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
He talks and acts as if he's Il Duce Mussolini or Milosevic, with lots of sword-rattling and big threats. Coming from someone of substance with some military and foreign experience, it might have some impact. From this minor racist politician, it is just hot air for the domestic audience. He is your basic ethnic nationalist cheerleader, which is why the Israeli right and ignorant love him so much, as with all populist demagogues. Outside Israel, he is seen as an ignorant loose cannon of an unpleasant racial hue and all diplomatic doors close. Yep, he sure is the right man to represent Israel, he shows the world its true face. He any military or foreign experience at all, or is he just a loud-mouthed bouncer in a suit?
