Reader comment on item: CrossTalk on Middle East: Shifting sands

It started with a fruit vendor - perfect! - I learned more from that one bit of information (and the disinclination of any of the rest of the panel to specifically contradict it) than from anything the rest of the panel said.

Indeed, what a missed opportunity to talk about French foreign policy. The great US 'empire', is aparently the only power that the left feels safe criticising.

By the end of the interview, it was even a bit of a challenge to talk about Tunisia!
