Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

When Saudi Arabia and several other Arab states broke diplomatic relations with Qatar, because of their support for ISIS and Iran, that never made sense.  First, ISIS gets more support from Saudi Arabia than it gets from Qatar, and Iran and ISIS hate each other.

Trump, being a fool, took credit for this development which was really all about the power play between Riyadh and Tehran and not about terrorism.  Now, ISIS has attacked Iran, killing more people than were killed in London.

A smart president would use this to leverage better relations with Iran.

We have the walking comments section from a Yahoo! article as president, so that won't happen.  Nor will he acknowledge what the Islamaphobes overlook: more Muslims die at the hands of Islamist terrorists than non-Muslims.
