"Maybe you should learn the basics before you reinvent the damn wheel", I heard this on television today and I liked that phrase. I think there is something in there for all of us don't you think? On another note, I'm just about to finish the documentary on the Lebanese civil war and the guy who put it together has done a fantastic job. One thing which struck me as odd was that Jumblatt actually came across as quite likeable for a warlord. His mannerisms both in archive footage and whilst being interviewed were quite amusing and I enjoyed watching him weasel his way out of the tough questions with a mischievous glint in his eye. Bastard - no wonder Fisk keeps harping on about having dinner with the guy. Syria might have some truly diabolical minds operating its foreign policy but Lebanon wins hands down for political personalities with pizzazz and flare (Is that how we spell pizzazz btw?).
