    We don't hate world-police, but the West esp. U.S. has been showing too nave and simple minded for that job. You often interfere in the exactly wrong direction and only make things worse.

    and then exacting from the contributors--to whom a little means so much--a double share to guard the treasure!

    Is Syria an example of this benevolent patience?

    This now sends timing communications. The discussions cannot last forever. What is the verdict?
