Two Jews kvetch about the Middle East

Stratfor Founder and Chairman George Friedman and Chief Geopolitical Analyst Robert D. Kaplan discuss the fraying of nation-state entities and the rise of sectarianism across the Middle East.

In my humble, there is a lot of sense in what they are saying. Worth your time for sure.

Oh, and I purely loved some of the comments to the clip, like this one:

I call bullshit. Two Zionist war criminals sit talking nonsense about the "rise" of sectarian violence. The sectarian problems did not just "rise". They were created by a program of US and Israeli-sponsored targeted assassinations and bombings.

The *current* divide between Sunni and Shia has been coldly and deliberately created by the murdering Zionists as part of their plan of conquest.
Erm... should cause you more interest in watching that, I think.

As if Friedman didn't have enough trouble, now he's a Zionist war criminal. That argues for moderating comments.

It is interesting that Google, frequently punishing bloggers for every imaginable offense, is so lenient toward the rabid commenters on Yuotube. Hard to figure what is going on there, but it's probably a result of becoming too big and too encumbered by lawyers...
