Syrian Red List and One Man's Failing Eyesight

The sock puppet on Peter Tompa's blog who he insists is the ageing Arthur [Houghton  III] writes insultingly (September 26, 2013 at 12:33 PM ):
"...Mr. Barford has once again revealed himself for being the fool he is. He evidently has forgotten, or never knew, or hardly cared, that countries must ask for an MOU for one to be entertained".
Well, if you look at the post of mine which is being discussed, admittedly it's right down the bottom, so those of short attention span may not have got that far, it says in black on white (and I have my screen set at large font size myself):
Obviously it is not really a very effective way of implementing the Convention if it can only be achieved by Syria asking the US very nicely to help it keep looted heritage in the country, when the US has been stomping about with its World Policeman hat on for the last few weeks, threatening to blast Syria into Kingdom Come. That's just dumb.
Can you see that? ACCG-Sock-puppet-Arthur in his haste to be insulting can't.

It is "Life" that is "a walking shadow" in the quote Sock-puppet-Arthur cannot quite seem to remember from his Macbeth. Looking at the strange spectacle of the overall tone of the gentleman's many recent "contributions" to the heritage debate on Peter Tompa's blog, I have another apt one for him, building on the same metaphor:

[...]  big manly voice,
Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
That ends this strange eventful history,
Is second childishness and mere oblivion,
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.
As You Like It, Act II Scene VII.
