-- -- -- -- -- W Washington I don't support they get so irons.
Well what really you know.
Were we just were picked up for a third season which is really exciting in this season has been going well -- not quite have done being shown but.
One of the things about that showed that was decided that the beginning.

And having covered Washington but also having grown up there.
-- is it really -- the most.
Allen west wing and the sense of the Aaron Sorkin show but I take -- DC you can imagine it's not glamorous.
The people dress terribly.
All citizens and this is the way it really is are all piled with the you know junk and old newspapers or whatever and everywhere there's just you don't.
Grasping for power even if power means that they can find -- -- to plug in a Blackberry because.
And more data over someone else and so if I think you know it's it's it's.
It's satirical and I think I'm glad the people finding it funny it's supposedly.
-- -- Like I have Netflix so.
About a mile away that we'll have joined Netflix I asked for my preferences my -- them out.
Yeah and that it that it provided -- with the brought by the recommended during for dog but we're going to -- their first and -- always annoys mail.
And on my heart.
I though I know yet there's -- familiarity is ridiculous.
My recommended viewing list included South Park and friendly -- and well that's not far off is.
Definitely not normal -- Not my favorite editor and a terrific by the way you know Richard can't -- -- People on Netflix could that they trio all right so then I go to my television and your apparently which I'm gonna rectified today.
On a similar call my friend -- -- album my stuff like.

Yes although it's all available on demand including -- -- season.
Also an HBO go which you can do you mean that -- this is -- -- -- or the laptop and Islam I think eventually and I tend to.
But HBO BS HBO Netflix -- the Hatfield McCoy if they don't hitter interface much.
Our corner until they're larger and frank Dodd-Frank Adrian Tom Friedman is working -- Yes I did and I would say it it it's of course about Syria and Iraq.
And I think it's paired with that probably unintentionally a really -- -- column on the same subject the -- today.

Telus -- wolf as you know -- -- saying how they're sort of they're twins and their and there are so look for them and -- Right.
Iraq yes and and that chaos couldn't -- it will soon no matter what we do we're gonna do.
Right as a very provocative piece and they recess period not Iraq.
And he comes from the point of view somebody.
Who is very wary about intervention in Syria but but it but explains that.
There really are the differences including the fact that the world has already behind American wind stop -- and that.
It's a move it really -- -- this -- nation already in civil war Iraq was not civil war until we we you know got there and turned it over so.
He makes -- case first for some kind of intervention was producing about all of them I think it's no one.
I don't think anyone is saying America should send troops there and the question is.
What else can we do is are we is it too late what we do -- we don't give a bunch of arms and end up.

Some big by the way he had supported turning -- democracy didn't turn out so well he's totally right.
-- -- to thank you bringing us up to that -- and and Keller who also and says in this piece.
That he's embarrassed that he originally did support the war in Iraq.
Try to say that's almost -- material because the whole region.
Actually does have a chance of blowing up of bad situations and stabilizer of the civil war.
You know it just affects everything it a rounded from -- Egypt who ran them and you know and the fact that look these are both the Smart analysts -- farm policy in the fact that they see so much nuance and can't.
