Petulance: MENA, American Magicalism & Infantilism
I noted our old amigo Abu Aardvark has a comment on Israeli presence on al Jazeera (and an apparent continued American boycott) that is worthy of consideration, as usual.
I frankly am at a loss to understand how the present American Administration is proceeding in region, other than by pure infantile magicalism. Refusing to talk to "bad actors" and essentially adopting a politico-diplomatic strategy that amounts to "I am going to hold my breath until you change and like me" hardly seems to be an appropriate strategy of a great power. But then considering the cretinous demarches to date, perhaps not talking is best.

A burning desire to believe the world is stupid.
nah, I just think they're acting tough. They prolly think Al-Jazeera is the enemy too, and it would be kow-towing to appear on it. We all remember the 'bomb Al-Jazeera' memo. Daft fuckers.
