The fact that Russia and President Assad are being "deliberately ignorant" of their own murderous intent towards the innocent people of Syria is what has been pointed out in this Video.... No one in the whole world wants terrorist activities of any kind, the whole world over.... And yet, Russia and President Assad "do not want" to acknowledge that their acts of violence against the innocent?, are actually acts of terrorism in themselves.... One thug is pretty much the same as the next, in every regard, when there are those that fulfill their promises of beheadiment of innocent victims that they have stolen, taken,????.... Acquired????.... From what ever parts of life that they have come from?.... And then the thugs in the air are only following orders from their thug Generals in Uniforms and in high places of Authority to go about terrorizing those that they believe are the terrorists at the basement variety of level of living, and in doing so?, include the innocent that are caught up in the whole conflict of it all and really don't care either way.... So long as they get their money and riches and high ranking positions kept in tact.... I really think that people in general, the whole world over.... Are really having quite enough of that kind of childish approach to life from these so called leaders.... So there is always the solution of having the likes of President Assad being formally arrested under International "Rule of Law" for the war crimes that they are quite clearly guilty of commiting and be put in Jail for the rest of their lives, simply because that is what they want for those that may survive their onslaught?, if they ever do?....

During UNGA, dozens of events occur each day which are focused on many global issues. On September 21, 2016 we took our Snapchat followers to the #LGBT Core Group Event with Vice President Biden and the Peer 2 Peer Extremism Challenge, where young people from around the world shared their innovative ideas to combat violent extremism.

There are plenty of headlines about the growing number of displaced people around the world  -- more than 60 million at last count. Twenty million are refugees. On the heels of the Leaders’ Summit on the Global Refugee Crisis that President Obama hosted at the UN General Assembly, we highlight three stories not often told about USAID’s critical food assistance to refugees: https://goo.gl/4E80a9.

Today, there are more than 21 million refugees across the globe; more than 4.8 million refugees alone have fled Syria since the beginning of that conflict. In addition, there are roughly 45 million internally displaced people today -- those who have fled their homes but remain inside their national borders.

Listen now to the newest episode of the Global Views podcast series as Erin Barclay, the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State in the Bureau of International Organization Affairs discusses the current refugee crisis and the global response with InterAction humanitarian worker Patty McIlreavy: https://goo.gl/xOFLZh. 
Over the past year global refugee issues have dominated our news feeds, our televisions, and our conversations. Many of us work on these issues every day and have for years, but to the average citizen, the global refugee challenges just became front-page news.

Africa Could Be the Great Economic Success of This Century

Africa is primed to be one of the great economic success stories of this century. Incomes are rising. Investments in infrastructure and technology are accelerating growth across a range of industries. Africa today is home to 700 companies with revenues greater than $500 million. Consumer spending is on track to climb to $1 trillion over the next four years. The workforce is projected to be the largest on the planet by 2040. The continent could make up a quarter of the global economy by the year 2050: https://goo.gl/ou32k7.

What do you think when you see pictures of migrants and refugees washing up on beaches, sleeping in parks, or covered with dust from bombings? Does it frighten you, tear at your heart strings, or even make you want to turn the channel? Over the past year global refugee issues have dominated our news feeds, our televisions, and our conversations. Many of us work on these issues every day and have for years, but to the average citizen, the global refugee challenges just became front-page news.

Today, there are more than 21 million refugees across the globe; more than 4.8 million refugees alone have fled Syria since the beginning of that conflict. In addition, there are roughly 45 million internally displaced people today -- those who have fled their homes but remain inside their national borders. On the margins of the 71st session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) two big events were meant to galvanize additional action on this crises -- the UN General Assembly Plenary Session on Large Movements of Refugees and Migrants held on September 19 and President Obama’s Leaders’ Summit on Refugees: https://goo.gl/Em74Wj.
