I think that an educated person is free from prejudices and imposed…
If there is one thing that Donald Trump does not need exactly at this point in the impeachment inquiry is to alienate US Republican Senators.
But giving way to Turkey's President Erdogan and dropping the Kurds might cost Trump the impeachment battle.
Here, Trump simply miscalculated. His move to “bring the troops back home” from Syria by dumping the Kurds backfired…Continue

On the European continent, the modern Romanian state is the posterchild for undercutting pressures in civilizational tectonics, a picture that Samuel P.

Built at the confluence of Ottoman, Habsburg and Russian Imperial borderlands, Romania’s trifold cultural heterogeneity resonates still and parlays into current social-political divisions and governance…Continue
