Curtis: I would say the same thing about you. What did you get from the show? Where you impressed with Gidon? What does he know? His job is to provide analysis. I did not get any


Sarah, you obviously didn’t watch or listen to the clip at all.


Gidon Rose is a new Conservative who wishes to see more conflicts around the world. His analysis are shallow and lack the depth of an expert and a well red individual. His understanding of the glob is based on an ideological believe rather than on a historical geostrategic( American Values are more important than my believes) one. He is someone who favors conflict management rather than conflict resolution , very bad for American values, but not business which he represents. I hope that World Focus reconsiders relaying on him for future analysis, for he does not provide any

Ms. Giacomo, was not prepared, looked very nervous, lacked the ease necessary to provide the audience with good points and was intimidated by Gidon.
