While Britain burnt, Turks behaved well, Brits wished for (Arab) Dictator or Army to crush rioting mobs

Even highly trained conflict transformation professionals who have cut their teeth on Afghanistan and Iraq are simply sighing – claiming that “these people” are just bad-guys."

Why is the king meeting us Jordanian youth, and taking notes?! [My letter to King Abdullah II of Jordan]
"Well, this is not the first time for King Abdullah II to go for close meetings with Jordanian youth, or for personal visits around the kingdom, but this time I was personally involved and sensed the spirit through my participation in King Abdullah II's meeting with 15 Jordanian youth last week, August 2, 2011.
