There is a new voice for West Asia, and it appears to be a very sensible voice, producing such informative articles as the one I feature below.
Operating only from a couple of months ago, August 2021, I gave it an early welcome by sharing an article from Pepe Escobar featured there. A very good start. I have since made The Cradle site one of my regular gotos for West Asia news and can confirm my earlier view that this is a valuable source for such news. The driving force behind The Cradle appears to be Sharmine Narwadi, well credentialed for the task and long known for her journalistic work about this troubled region. I can think of no better placed source for that task, and the willingness for Escobar to associate himself or at least his work with it bodes well for its authority and success. Welcome, The Cradle.
