The Debate – Battle for Aleppo, with Jim W. Dean

Head to head with the professor


by Jim W. Dean, VT Editor     … with Press TV, Tehran

[ Note: I am always surprised to have these professor types running interference for the jihadis, claiming they are all peace loving citizens wanting to overthrow a dictator. It is getting late in the day for that old tired story.

But then again I am not overly surprised, as university professors know where their bread is buttered and are usually not about to rock the boat to disrupt that. They live and die on grant funding and help getting their books published and promoted.

It is these kinds of people who don’t see Aleppo being liberated, but rather being destroyed by the Assad regime and the Russians.

Thank you, Press TV, for letting me chew on this guy for half an hour. And thank God I am not in an academic community where you know who can hold sway over which profs get tenure and which don’t. VT may be non-remunerative work, but at least we don’t have to wear knee pads to work every dayJD ]
