According to Sen. Lindsey Graham, they are coming over here to kill us all. That’s right, every … single … one … of … us. Then there’s Mike Huckabee, who says that partnering with Assad wouldn’t be like hugging each other and riding off into the sunset like in Casablanca. Ummm, that doesn’t happen in Casablanca.
So here’s a photo essay on what it’s like to walk through the square on a bustling Saturday night. Guess what? Nobody tried to kill me. Well, maybe the monkey that took a swipe at me. Nobody sticks out as an Westerner than me, Whitey McWhiteson.
