How can Iran be trusted? They are taking the world powers to the cleaners and should not be awarded for doing so

The world today is irrevocably global. And we are so interconnected that what happens in one part of the world impacts the rest of us.

Now for some positive news out of Iraq - An ancient market from A.D. 750 still a meeting place in the heart of Baghdad. Glad ISIS has not managed to ruin it:-)
The Iraqi capital's ancient and well-preserved Shorja market has long been a meeting point for Iraqis and a barometer of the political and economic situation in the country.

Often wonder how voters, all over the world, can buy this kind of spin. And even worse when they are being outright lied to by spin doctors. 
Forget about the Arkansas days, the small-bore scandals, her health care plan, and most everything else from the 1990s. A consensus is forming within the Republican Party that the plan of attack against Hillary Clinton should be of a more recent vintage, rooted in her accumulation of wealth and designed to frame her as removed from the concerns of...

    Dagens marknad är ofrånkomligt global. Med Europa i skuldkris är det läge att titta på nya marknader inte bara för export men finansiering. Saudiarabien och Gulfstaterna erbjuder enorma möjligheter. Följaktligen underlättar jag för företag att lyckas där. Vad jag kan göra för er beror på vad ni vill uppnå i regionen. Har ni en innovativ produkt med goda möjligheter? Forskningen är ännu inte klar och ni har behov av långsiktig finansiering? Då kan vi titta på möjligheten att få investeringar från affärsänglar och/eller riskkapitalbolag i området. Distributör, kundmöten eller etablering där är andra områden där jag kan vara behjälplig.
