The most recent Hamblin-Peterson column for the Deseret News appeared three days ago. I’ve simply been too busy, too much on the road, and too distracted, and I failed to mention it. But here’s a link to it now:
The Middle East has been a mess for several generations, but — O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay! — the Trump administration has recently pitched in to make it even worse. Here are some recent links on the subject:
“Syrian government troops have began advancing north following a deal struck with Kurdish-led forces to hold off Turkey’s military offensive, as Kurdish authorities reported the escape of hundreds of people with links to ISIS from a detention camp in the area.”
This, I’m afraid, is the kind of thing that you should expect to get when you elect as president an intellectually lazy man with weak morals, few if any discernible constant principles, and a business and personal history of disloyalty, infidelity, and betrayal.
Unfortunately, our only serious alternative for 2020 is an increasingly unhinged Democratic Party whose frontrunners at the moment are themselves people who have serious problems telling the truth and who have been moving further and further to the lunatic left.
