A All About Me!
Now those of you who know me well would recall that I am not by profession or even by design a military analyst or military expert, or even a political expert one at that (if you can call being a Human Resources professional as is also involved in ‘wars’ between Management and Staff, and to draw a ‘thin line’ between getting your next salary payment (if you annoy the Management) and to see ‘professionalism and ethics are played’ in dealing and in handling with staff problems and grievances!)
However, I do read a lot of news papers (at least 4 daily including from the UAE). I watch BBC world, CNN, Euro News etc. and to get the flavour from the other side Al-Jazeera TV, Al-Arabi, MBC, LBC, Press TV and other Arab channels. So you may say ‘I am informed’ – especially as I also spend at least 2 hours a day on the Internet glossing and grouping all the news from different networks.
So please forgive the layman’s views on what he considers ‘his informed opinions and ideas on this war – though I can hear it being said – ‘those of you who think they know everything, are upsetting those of us who know that we do!’
