Reader comment on item: Lebanon's Liberation Approaches

Submitted by Arlinda DeAngelis (United States), Feb 22, 2005 at 23:15

Dr. Pipes in his infinite wisdom has again analyzed not only the Syrian connection to murderous terrorism and incompetence and tyranny but to the inherent failure of dynasty in the Twenty-first century. Connecting North Korea and Syria is brilliant.

Dynasty reigns supreme in the bedlam of the theocratic tyrannical Middle East ... from father to son. If the son doesn't inherit the father's skills, too bad for the country, too bad for region. This kid sounds like a first rate moron and, yet, he rules a country! The Syrians have gone back eons to dynastic Egypt.

I find it amazing that the Middle East along with it compatriots, the Euros, complain and whine and castigate Israel for even stepping foot or an inch or two out of the borders of their small democracy but are silent on the Syrian incursion into Lebanon. The world is indeed a strange place.

Dr. Pipes undoes the tangled webs of Middle Eastern politics and makes their failures come alive.

Bravo, Dr. Pipes. Bravisimo!
