A blog on the current crises in the Middle East and news accounts unpublished by the US press. Daily timeline of events in Iraq as collected from stories and dispatches in the French and Italian media: Le Monde (Paris), Il Corriere della Sera (Milan), La Repubblica (Rome), L'Orient-Le Jour (Beirut) and occasionally from El Mundo (Madrid).
Every day's a good day to visit Prof. Landis' Syria Comment. Much to my surprise, one of my comments on France's relationship with Syria made today's front page over there. Modestly placing this aside (What? Me plug myself?) if you are interested hearing from a US-trained Syria expert on the scene, check out Syria Comment daily. You won't be disappointed and you'll enjoy genuine, informed and balanced insight away from the muddied waters of Ms. Ros-Lehtinen or Mr. Lantos. Be sure to leave a comment, too!
