In the aftermath of the Arab Uprisings, the world created by Sykes and Picot has emulated Humpty Dumpty and fallen off the wall. All planes, drones, missiles and men will not be able to recreate that world again.
As Sykes and Picot toss and turn in their graves, the Middle East is going through its own version of the Thirty Years’ War.

The case of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is challenging. He’s been in power for nearly 15 years, which puts him in the top 25 of longest-serving leaders. But he’s only 49 years old. His father, Hafez al-Assad, ruled until he was nearly 70. Can Syria or the world endure another two decades of despotism from the younger Assad?
Bashar al-Assad is not going to age out of office any time soon.

A person such as Abu Sayyaf would have a broad knowledge of the Islamic State’s entire system of management and control, exactly what has made the movement so spectacularly rich.
With the war in Iraq and Syria going nowhere, the US has tried to spin a failed attempt to capture an Islamic State leader as a success.

Indian women still do not have equality. Selective abortion, discrimination and rape are dark spots on society. Therefore, it is imperative that India’s education system pushes for equality between men and women. 
Five years after the Right to Education Act, India needs clear goals to give its children the education they deserve.

Arguing with Holocaust deniers may be pointless, but trying to understand their motives and arguments is not.

The crisis in Greece comes from a simple fact: The Greeks took on debt recklessly and the Germans lent them money carelessly.
As the Greek debt saga plays on, the US talks tough and China flirts with its neighbors.

In World War II, the firebombing of German cities killed 600,000 German civilians, including 75,000 children. The fire bombings of Tokyo and other major Japanese cities killed upward of 300,000 people, predominantly civilians, and this doesn’t include the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. 
Wartime commemorations are the functional equivalent of mounting the heads of victims on pikes.

Despite the fact that we live in the least violent time in our history, recent years have seen a sharp decline in levels of peace.
Reducing violence-related spending by as little as 25% could free up $2.3 trillion to invest in peace-building.
