Actually - what I said was that

  "Nicola is 100% familiar with the reasons why he is
  the last person on the planet to assume any authority
  on [the subject of deescalation]"

I would call that more of an "observation" rather than an "attack". I'm 
confident Nicola understands and appreciates that distinction.

Cheers, Steve.
