A Gulf In Thinking

It is easy to have no dog in this fight.
My favourite quotation of all time is the one attributed to Henry Kissenger about the Iran-Iraq War: "It's a pity that only one of them can lose." I find that line endlessly useful.
But as Saudi Arabia demands that Qatar close Al Jazeera, and stop funding media critical of the Saudi regime such as Middle East Eye, where are the free speech warriors of the West?

  1. What is Laura Pidcock's favourite quotation from Henry Kissinger? What does she know about Al Jazeera or Middle East Eye? Could she find Qatar on a map?
