The Chickens From Syria Are Coming Home to Roost

The scum of the earth has descended on Syria. These evil Jihadists are Western allies. Some countries are having regrets. How are they going to handle this policy U turn of sleeping with the devil? 



The West is now realizing it has made a colossal mistake in supporting the Sunni Jihadists. 

In the US criticism is mounting against Obama's inconsistent policies. The news that Western intelligence agencies have been in touch with the Syrian regime is an embarrassment. But what was even more embarrassing, but has hardly been noted, was a report in the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Rai. It quoted well informed sources close to Assad and reported that Germany, Switzerland, the UK, Italy, Austria and Spain have begun rapprochement talks with the regime in Syria that go further than just security and the re-opening of embassies in Damascus.

Romantic Realism: "West Side Story"

West Side Story was inspired by Shakespeare's play, Romeo and Juliet. The story is set in the Upper West Side neighborhood in New York City in the mid-1950s, an ethnic, blue-collar neighborhood



The story tells the rivalry between the Jets and the Sharks, two street gangs of immigrants from different ethnic backgrounds, Poland and Puerto Rico

West Side Story (1961) is an quintessential American musical with a book by Arthur Laurents, music by the master himself, Leonard Bernstein, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and conception and choreography by Jerome Robbins. The musical (1949) was inspired by William Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet. It is set in the Upper West Side neighborhood in New York City in the mid-1950s, an ethnic, blue-collar neighborhood. The rivalry between the Jets and the Sharks, two street gangs of immigrants from different ethnic backgrounds makes the story surprisingly contemporary. The dark theme, sophisticated music, extended dance scenes, and focus on social problems marked a turning point in American musical theatre. The story is set on the interface of the Left and Right view of man. The theme is well explored throughout the film.
