Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

It could be, if we had the resident expertise in the community to provide a quality of analysis similar to what we do with other subjects we cover.

The problem with shergald's newspaper clippings is that he brings no expertise to the table, in fact he brings no evidence of higher brain activity to the table at all.

As I said before shergald flushed that comment down the memory hole, and as I maintain still, it would be possible to write a news aggregation spider that would add all the value shergald adds to European Tribune.

Actually, we probably do.

Let's see, just off the top of my head:

kcurie did his PhD in Israel in the not too distant past.
Also recently, stormy was a working in the middle east (and travelling regularly around it), and she speaks arabic.
gk is Jewish (I forget whether he's a dual Israeli citizen) and has displayed a wealth of obscure knowledge.
ceebs has knowledge of international law.

And so on and so forth.

And, in fact, these people regularly diary or comment on the I/P problem. We had lively in-depth discussions of the 2006 Lebanon war, for instance.

By laying out pros and cons we risk inducing people to join the debate, and losing control of a process that only we fully understand. - Alan Greenspan
