    In pictures: Obama’s 8-year journey through Europe

    This week, the U.S. president visits the U.K. — followed by a stop in Germany — likely for his last time in office, slowly bringing to a close a long, mixed relationship with Europe that began when Barack Obama was a history-making candidate for office.

    Was von Europas Strahlkraft geblieben ist

    Europa ist für die meisten Georgier ein Gefühl, ein Wohlstandstraum, ein Spaziergang durch das hübsch frisierte Touristenviertel von Tiflis. Kaum abseits der Bars und Boutiquen aber wird das Leben karg, Kinder schnorren Zigaretten, Familien leben in halbfertigen Hochhäusern. Die zahllosen Satellitenschüsseln leiten fast nur russische Sender nach...

    Obama sees another foreign policy goal crumble in Syria

    President Barack Obama’s most tangible success in his push to stop Syria’s bloodbath — a cease-fire struck in late February — is rapidly turning into a failure. His fiercest critics in Congress, meanwhile, are basically saying, “I told you so.” The always-fragile truce “may be breaking down” the president acknowledged Thursday while...

    ‘Dangerous times’ for Europe’s journalists

    Fool me once

    IN HER colourless suit, Angela Merkel looked like a grey mouse, too ashamed to face the German public after her cowardly decision to permit investigation into a comedian who had insulted the Turkish president. She is the epitome of hypocrisy and double standards. Her migration policy is an act of political suicide which has empowered...
