Article: Obama's Last Gasp Imperialism

Article: Obama's Last Gasp Imperialism | Global politics | Scoop.it
Article: Obama's Last Gasp Imperialism - A lot of damage can be done between now and January 20, 2009. There is no reason to mourn or rejoice Obama's departure because he will be followed by someone who likes his foreign policy as it is. That person will also like Americans as they are: mostly intelligent but uninformed even if they wish to know what is happening around the world.

Taste of His Own Medicine: Erdogan Accuses Europe of Dictatorship, Cruelty

Taste of His Own Medicine: Erdogan Accuses Europe of Dictatorship, Cruelty | Global politics | Scoop.it
Just days after taking a hard line on the EU-Turkey deal, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused the EU of “dictatorship” and “cruelty” for closing their borders to migrants.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Erdogan Sultan is a dangerous megalomaniac. He belongs in a lunatic asylum, along with Frau Merkel for being so sollicitous with him. As for his tantrum over the refugees, it should be asserted that they didn't actually use Turkey, it was Turkey who uses them by opening its borders and sending them to Europe through its myriad of smuggling gangs in order to subject the EU to his blackmail over a "free zone" in Syria, and to extort money and formal facilities such as free visa and an easing of EU-accession negotiations.
