East is East, and West is San Francisco, according to Californians. Californians are a race of people; they are not merely inhabitants of a State.
When fairy tales are written in the west, they're known as folklore. In the east, fairy tales are called religions.
You have to look at the history of the Middle East in particular. It has been one of failure and frustration, of feudalism and tribalism.

It is not in the interest of the German people or in the interest of world peace that Germany should become a pawn or a partner in a military struggle for power between the East and the West.
James F. Byrnes

Tommy Lee Jones
I was a news reporter for 16 years, seven of them a foreign correspondent in the Middle East, Africa and the Balkans.

Tell that to your desk.
