History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.
Just in the interests of symmetry the Paris Peace Conference due to take place next week should have waited two more years. It won’t of course, not even four more months, because the organisers are aware that not only would U.S. President Obama be replaced by President Trump but French President François Hollande has announced he would not seek re-election in the upcoming 2017 French presidential election. For both of them properly screwing Israel before their term ends is a last hurrah.
Why two years? That would be the centenary of the Paris Peace Conference of 1919, otherwise known as the Treaty of Versailles.

Thank you Shirlee for bringing it to our notice.

Random thoughts loosely connected by the U.S. election
This week someone called me ‘White’ and clearly considered that to be an insult. Unless her Facebook profile picture was a lie or she was a black Rachel Dolezal, she was no less Caucasian than me. It did get me thinking. Continue reading
