The Middle East : A Complicated Place

I already had a draft of an entry for today, but it can wait. You are probably sick of me going on about music, so this is a good time for a brief diversion.

The Middle East is complicated. I am not going to attempt to go into why or how except to share this cool animation of The Imperial History of the Middle East.

It's no wonder that things there are not easy. I think that anyone who thinks there is an easy solution to anything in the Middle East is underestimating the complexity of the situation. Then again, maybe I'm overgeneralizing.
