A day after Newsweek magazine published a piece claiming that Ukraine had been invaded by "little green men" sent by Putin "steel in his eyes", striding "purposefully through a field of corn" then followed by a bunch of Russophobic hysteria, now we have the Guardian newspaper, proposing to stop "Putin" "with guns". In a word, war.
Libya is in focus in the UN Security Council as two separate resolutions were adopted today calling for an immediate and unconditional ceasefire and extending the UN Mission, UNSMIL, until September 15. This, in a country living at peace and in prosperity until Messrs. Obama and chief poodles Cameron and Sarkozy went on an imperialistic venture.
The war that everyone fears we are moving inexorably toward could not be a protracted war of attrition as WWII was. It would rapidly escalate into a brutal exchange of missiles, of aerial battles between US and Russian jet fighters, of US-NATO aircraft carriers and battleships sending sorties to fire rockets and drop bombs on Russia, Iran and Syria

Growing demand means that water withdrawal is set to increase by around fifty-five per cent by 2050, while today, already twenty per cent of aquifers are being over-exploited, some at a critical level.

The thing that always leaps out at me when I see Hillary is joy. Her smile exudes a sense of life that is both passionate and innocent at the same time.
