Cohen Vs Hari: Volty’s Verdict.

August 26, 2007 at 8:07 pm (blogging, blogosphere, deviants, voltairespriest)

As promised to left wing blogging’s femme fatale, Red Maria, I now have considered in depth my verdict on the Cohen-Hari saga. And it is this.

Who gives a shit one way or the other? They’re both wankers from the same London media circles, from which originates most of the thud and blunder about “stoppers” versus “decents” in any case. Who cares whether one of them has recanted this view, whilst the other still asserts that one? We’re talking about two smug liberal journalists for Christ’s sake.

Send the two self-regarding twats on a tour of Kurdistan to see what actually happens in the areas which so many armchair Napoleons in the West (masquerading under the guise of “political activists”) seem to think they have the ideal solution for. That’ll help them both to put their dispute in perspective.

I hope that was unambiguous, and that my stance is clear.

    Why not Kurdistan? Why the regions that always get talked about? And what’s your point anyway?

    My point is that most of the horrors visited on the Iraqi people as a direct consequence of the US and British invasion have been visited on other areas of Iraq then Kurdistan. So its a bit of an odd thing to send the armchair warriors to that area.
