Nagorno-Karabakh conflict: the OSCE Minsk Group is obsolete

The official framework for dealing with the Nagorno-Karabakh issue is the OSCE Minsk Group, but given its ineffectiveness in making concrete progress in the past two decades, it appears as though it’s time of relevance has passed. Clearly, the old method of dealing with the crisis simply hasn’t worked, and this is due to a […]

Yemen: the Afghanistan of the Gulf coalition

Yemen has the potential of becoming the Afghanistan of the Gulf coalition.

Vatican clergy and Ukrainian nationalism (II)

Part I The ‘Good’ That Comes From A Golodomor “Genocide” The ‘glue’ that holds the US’ plans together is the ability to rally Ukrainians against Russia, and this is where the Golodomor [Holodomor in Ukrainian spelling – OR] “genocide” myth is absolutely pivotal.

Vatican clergy and Ukrainian nationalism (I)
