The method of Thomas Friedman

The man travels the globe to find someone who can provide simplistic and dumb cliches like the ones he vomits three times a week:  "Nader Mousavizadeh, a former senior United Nations official and the co-founder of Macro Advisory Partners, a geopolitical advisory firm, and he offered another framework: “The real struggle in the region,” he said, “is between arsonists and firefighters.”"  This is as saying that the conflict is between good guys and bad guys or between "cowboys and Indians".  How sophisticated is the mind of Thomas Friedman?
