featuring Niall Fergusonvia LawFare
Thursday, February 15, 2018

These days, everyone seems to meet online.

Real Target Of Erdogan's Olive Branch Could Be US Clout

quoting Fabrice Balanche via Al-Monitor
Thursday, February 15, 2018

A veteran Kurdish politician went so far as to suggest that Afrin would become Turkey’s “Vietnam.”
