    Captain Vietnam: Bestower of Tumors

    al-Sisi's shift towards alliance with Iran, Russia, Syria, etc. continues to surprise me, and to frame an attack as solidarity with Christians no less...wild. Can't believe his purported nationalism is actually living up to its word. I'm still skeptical, but this is could be a different kind of hope for the region. I thought for sure in 2013 that Egypt was going to be another Saud/US puppet. If there is such a thing as a silver lining in MENA this must be about as close as one can get.

    And the shite side of nationalism whereby a people whose culture has survived four and a half millennia are reduced to borders drawn by imperialists in the 20th century CE. fucking ridiculous.
