A very good article by Maureen Dowd about the third - or is it fourth or fifth? - Iraq War, under the pithy headline
"Little will be heard from Arab leaders on atrocities of Islamic State against women."I love her because she once brilliantly said that the Americans should built a statue to Jacques Chirac in contrition for not heeding his advice about not invading Iraq. Yes indeed, allegedly adulterous and allegedly crooked though he is.
So of course counselled Vladimir Putin too - and many other people, including, I am pleased to say, me. I do not get everything right - I welcomed the Arab Spring, for example, and liked Tony Blair at first - but I got Iraq right.
