It has been raining for almost a week and temperatures are under freezing. Israel functions as usual, but life must be miserable for the half million Syrian refugees in the Middle East. The camps are flooded and the tents are flying in the wind, the water must be contaminated with Coli and the childen must all sick. For once, no one blames us. I too must be sick, mentally sick, for feeling my enemy's pain.
I dont know who will emerge victorious in Syria, but for the next dozen years they will be too weak to wage war against us. This three year long and ongoing Arab spring has one clear effect: Arab countries are falling apart and the old dictators replaced by unoperable coalitions. As Assad said, Al Qaeda terrorists have left the West and Russia, and moved to subvert and destroy Muslim regimes. I have never heard or read of this process as an explicit Western strategy to defeat Muslim terrorists, but it is working as such. If I were an American pundit, I would take credit for this process.
