Blaming Iraq’s Trade With Iran As the Failure of Iranian Economic Sanctions Is Laughable
In the summer of 2012 we noted a very interesting set of articles appear all over the media explaining how Iraq was undermining the economic sanctions on Iran. Of course, we must understand that Iran borders Iraq, and there isn’t much trade going on with Syria due to the chaos there with the potential fall of the Assad regime. But I’d like to ask whom Iraq is supposed to trade with if it cannot trade with one of its largest neighbors.Invest in the United States, Get a Green Card
People around the world seek to immigrate to the United States for various reasons. Though it is the dream of many foreigners to immigrate to the United States, it is not an easy task to obtain a Green Card and become a permanent resident of America.The Saudis Are Helping Dislodged Syrian Refugees – Are They Also Supporting the Rebels?
The Saudi government is encouraging its wealthy citizens to help out their fellow Sunnis which have fled Syria. Many have made it to the borders of Lebanon and Turkey. The Saudi’s are sending them money, lots of donations to help them out in this terrible crisis. The number of refugees coming out of Syria is growing by the day, it is already well into the tens of thousands, if it hasn’t already increased to over 100,000 people, one unconfirmed report said 200,000 but I can’t verify that in time for this article’s publishing.Divine Right: Born To Rule
What is the ultimate origin of the concept of ‘born to rule’ or of ‘divine right’? Why should someone who just happened to be the product of a particular sperm cell and a particular egg cell require worship as if they were a god? Does it have anything to do with real supernatural deities anointing those with the ‘right stuff’ genetics, those who they see fit to rule, or perhaps there’s a more intimate connection. Perhaps in fact it’s all nonsense.Islamic Sectarian Violence – Can the West Help By Remaining an Enemy to the Middle East?
Ronald Reagan once made a very interesting speech while he was in Europe talking to the other leaders of the world. He said that it was too bad that humans couldn’t all get together in a common cause, perhaps defending against an alien invasion, as it would bring all nations together. That is an interesting thought, and there is a lot of truth to that. To build a team, sometimes it pays to have a common enemy. The problem is if the common enemy is a common human, now we have all the makings for a major conflict.
