He’s offered to do a deal with Isis. No, not David Cameron. Not Obama, of course. I’m talking about Walid Jumblatt, the Lebanese Druze leader. He’s demanding that the Lebanese government swap Islamist prisoners for 21 soldiers and policemen held by Isis and Jabhat al-Nusra.

​What's going on in the Middle East? No, I don't know either

​What's going on in the Middle East? No, I don't know either | Global politics | Scoop.it
The fact that the UK is, pretty much, useless (except for optics) in the fight against IS, hasn’t stopped the domestic media from producing wall-to-wall coverage. I followed the Guardian’s live blog yesterday (Sunday) and it was far from riveting stuff. “RAF Tornadoes return to Cyprus without finding targets,” was the biggest story. That’s right up there with “Thomas Muller plays for Bayern Munich, but doesn’t score” - a headline I don’t expect to see on the sports pages.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

 It seems that in the game of Middle East geopolitics and conflict, anything could happen next. Somewhere, a select few are gaining from this continuous tumult, while the 99.9 percent suffer.

“First of all I would like to make one thing quite clear… I never explain anything,” exclaimed Julie Andrews in Mary Poppins. In this case, it’s just as well.
