Continued diatribes, Springtime for Baybars and Damascenes, Its Winter for Hama and Homs

August 2, 2011- I have not forgotten the fictional Madame Bassma Kodmani of the fictional Arab Reform Initiative.  She will be dealt with anon.  Once I am done with her, you will be convinced that the only real Bassma Kodmani is some “patrone” in Montmarte.  Every culture has its famous duos, sometimes husband and wife,…

From Agincourt to Hama, Let the caissons go rolling along

August 2, 2011 – It is beautiful.  Shiniy Syrian Army tanks rolling in to that malignant tumor of a city, Hama.  I am disappointed by the low fatality figures, however.  The more scum dispatched, the fewer the salafists.  I understand that hypocrite western countries are going to impose more sanctions against Syria for maintaining its…

A Newer Modest Proposal – Fertilizer

August 1, 2011 – I don’t think that using them for anatomical instruction will work.  Some Dr. Abu-Kildare will take note so many have bullet holes in their abdomens that he’ll wind up blowing a whistle and possibly getting on the slab himself.  Hmmm.  So, I thought about it.  I liked the idea of just cremation in…

A New Modest Proposal

August 1, 2011 – So Obama is “appalled” by the violence in Syria.  Is he appalled by the murder of at least 300,000 Iraqi civilians?  Has he said it?  We have revealed the disinformation campaign being waged by the U.S. State Department.  It would all go away if Dr. Assad rescinded all agreements with Iran and…

Addenda et Corrigenda

July 21, 2011 – Sorry. I do make typo mistakes.  On July 25, 2011, I mistakenly suggested that those  who are spreading a message of “secularism” be sent to Davey Jones’ Locker.  I meant: “sectarianism”. Please forgive me. ZAF

Syria’s New Organ Donor Program

July 31, 2011 – Fresh back from another trip to my dacha in Kalkaska; refreshed and feeling creative.  I have a new (used) pontoon boat which needs some work.  I was hoping some of my family would accompany me for that purpose, but, disappointment was the order of the day.  Well, I hope that the message…

The Day of Judgment is at Hand for the Traitors of Hama

July 31, 2011-The Syrian Army came down like the wolf on the fold.  Finally, the Hamlet-like president of Syria took the action he should have taken months ago.  Hama will be shown that its miserable road blocks made of papier-mache and old tires are no match for soldiers in T-72 tanks.  Oh, but the Hamawi traitors…

Anthony Shadid: Fiction Relayed as Fact

July 26, 2011- Just got back from a session with this Lebanese oyster-head charged with violation of a Personal Protection Order.  As he and I engaged in some preliminary discourse to settle the boundaries of his education, I asked him if he could speak in Literary Arabic.  He answered in the affirmative.  While I had…
