    Crises everywhere and Trump and supporters are completely vapid

    NORTH CAROLINA - Follow the best minds one has ever read on media applications and the overwhelming impression one gets is a world that has lost whatever moorings it may have once had and seems to be careening towards one disaster or another, all more or less fomented by Western “leaders” who have become desperate to maintain various narratives of control and dominance. And this in particular in the case of the U.S. with Trump as President.

    New political equations in Greece

    Greece is one of the countries that continues to face a financial crisis. The crisis has begun in Greece since 2007 and continues. The recent general election in Greece has led to the defeat of the leftist government. As predicted, despite the adoption of austerity policies for 11 years, Greece is still one of the most austerity-stricken countries in the EU. Although Greece was supposed to emerge from the bailout by 2012, and step towards economic prosperity, heavy debts prevented the realization of this process. The European Union, the European Central Bank, and the International Monetary Fund loaned Greece a total of €289bn ($330bn) in three programs, in 2010, 2012 and 2015.

    Global response to Rohingya crisis astonishingly slow

    In the crammed and dingy refugee camps of Cox’s Bazar, where almost a million Rohingya refugees are currently languishing in impoverished conditions, women who were gang-raped by Burmese security forces nearly 10 months ago are now giving birth to babies.

    Europe’s chance in 2018

    With no looming crisis and only one major election in 2018, the coming year is on track to be one of relative calm for Europe, providing a rare opportunity for the European Union to make progress on long-term challenges, from climate leadership to migration. Three areas, in particular, stand out.

    Only by regaining control can we solve the migration and refugee crisis

    At the height of the migration crisis which hit Europe in 2015, a photograph circulated in social media showing a lone policeman standing arms across trying to block a country-road near the Austrian border while hundreds of migrants passed by him on both sides of the road. For me this picture was paradigmatic of the crisis: the sense of a loss of control and of being overwhelmed by developments.

    Kim and Trump have more in common than they think

    Calculated ambiguity and coercive diplomacy appear to be at the heart of U.S. President Donald Trump’s approach to dealing with North Korea. As a candidate, Trump seemed to revel in keeping his opponents guessing — for example when he announced his “secret plan” for dealing with the Islamic State terrorist group (ISIL).

    U.S. could face human rights crisis after Trump's xenophobic immigration orders

    Hidden among the promise of a wall and the withdrawal of funding to sanctuary cities is a much more insidious – and immediate – move to replace the ‘catch and release’ border policy with mandatory detention.

    America’s attitude toward Iran risks shifting Tehran’s East-West balance toward Russia

    Russia’s Foreign Ministry announced this week that diplomats from Russia, the U.S. and regional powers in the Middle East would meet in Switzerland this weekend to discuss the crisis in Syria. The U.S. State Department has said the talks are aimed at finding, “a multilateral approach to resolving the conflict in Syria, including a sustained cessation of violence and the resumption of humanitarian aid deliveries.” While diplomats from regional powers Saudi Arabia and Turkey are expected to attend, it is not yet clear whether Iranian representatives will be present. The key to Iranian cooperation with world powers on such a regional issue, however, remains the proper implementation of the nuclear deal.
