Quotes

He said: "Kurds were wrong to keep silent then, and people here are wrong today to be cold toward Kobani. More and more people focus exclusively on their core community's interests, turning their backs on others. The Alawites marked the 'peace day' [Sept. 21] here this year by carrying [Syrian President BasharPresident Bashar al Assad's picture. To them, he fell victim to an international conspiracy and is fighting for his country."
..."We don’t have any problem here with the locals. It is all us," a member of the Jewish community said. "But there are so many Syrians here, and you see them walking around with long coats hiding their weapons. If one psychopath comes and kills us because we are Jews, who could say a thing? No one can give any guarantee here any longer that this is a safe place."
...Also I reflect on the words of Flora Slosson Wueller, author of "Prayer, Fear and Our Power." She writes: "True power is the opposite of force.”"
There are tactics and strategy on offer for the other side in such a conflict from Sun Tzu. "If the enemy is in superior strength evade him... If his forces are united, separate them... Put division between sovereign and subject... Appear where you are not expected."
