I recall being frustrated at many of the opinions of Alexander, however like Hassan I don't recall anyone trying to prevent Alexander's posts and have generally learned more from the exchanges than from many others. This exchange has been a rather interesting one for me. The most interesting portion is perhaps the perspectives that surprised me. As to whether Elga "doesn't care" about what happens to the Kurds, I cant imagine an attribution that would be further from who Elga is. She has (previous posts and personal emails) always struck me as a very caring person, for all of hu(wo)manity. As to Alexander being the "most informed" concerning the Kurds, 'history' and 'fact' are interesting things as well. Fact is not the only thing which informs opinion. Bias informs opinion often as much as fact and sometimes far more. Alexander, Peter, Roger, Elga, Hassan and the rest are subject to Bias's pressure. An anti-sanctions, antiwar member.
