What Mad Pursuit?

Khalid Wad Albaih, Terrorist vs. Terrorist, March 18, 2019.

The tales of the old gods - the Nordic and Greek alike - were on to something.

They speak of a number of gods of which some may be generally better behaved than others, but at some point each of them will reveal themselves to be spiteful, often vengeful, taking it out on the humans in the middle of it all.

Those were tales that explain our world today. While we look to one side mourning the terrorist act against two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, another takes place in Utrecht, the Netherlands. We know and have seen already that extremist viewpoints will jump to take advantage of both massacres while the humans pay the prize.

Khalid Albaih has made the game as clear-cut as the wasp-waisted and sharp shouldered figures on a Grecian urn. The players bring elegance and beauty to the game while ignoring the results of their actions piling up into the usefulness of a net.
