Europe Acts as Vassal State of Washington in Terms of Sanctions: Former US Official

Many questions have arisen questioning Europe's ability to act independently after US Vice President Joe Biden recently announced that the US had forced EU countries to impose economic sanctions against Russia despite the fact that many of them were opposed to such measures.

The sanctions have more negatively impacted the EU economy, rather than Russia’s, as Russia has other alternative trade partners in the East and in the South American region, said Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan Administration, in an interview to Radio VR. He added that the sanctions could have positive effect on Russia’s economic development as they would make “the [Russian] Government realize that the dependency on Washington and the dependency on Europe is a strategic error of the highest magnitude.”

The possible creation of a training camp for Syrian opposition fighters in the former Soviet republic of Georgia is inefficient for the fight against the Islamic State (IS), Lionel Beehner, Ph.D. candidate in political science at Yale University, has told RIA Novosti.

“It is hard to imagine the Georgians training thousands of Syrian fighters. Most of the training and cooperation will be done clandestinely, given the regional sensitivities and the real threat of ISIS [IS] seeping into the Caucasus … if they are pushed out of northern Syria and Iraq,” Beehner said on Monday.

The man who died thrice and yet liveth!

Culled from Punch
This is an appeal for help. The story tells of the grace of God and the endurance of love between a man and a woman. I was privileged to witness both aspects as it played out in Garki Hospital, Abuja.

Death Number One
Mr. Ikechukwu Obiora was rushed to the hospital after he collapsed. He was unconscious, desperate and dying. He had suffered a stroke and had rivers of blood inside his brain. After the emergency brain scan, we rushed him into the theatre and put two drains in his head to remove blood clots. This released the massive pressure on his brain. However, he remained unconscious, dead to the world and had to be transferred to the intensive care unit for a machine to breathe for him. We intubated him by passing a tube through the mouth, the neck, his throat and into the lungs. This helped him breathe and so sustained his life.
