    Afghan Migrant Situation and European Reaction

    We often forget that a significant proportion of refugees who now knock on the door of Europe are Afghans.

    Why Putin has pulled Russia out of Syria

    Back in September 30 2015, when Vladimir Putin unexpectedly announced the deployment of the Russian air force in Syria, the consensus was that this would prove to be a costly mistake. Critics argued that airstrikes alone would not make any tangible difference to the facts on the ground. The seemingly endless US-led air campaign against Islamic...
