WeThePeople

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt again prove to be the supercouple of America. If not of the whole world. Aren’t they just called „Brangelina“ for that? So they did not stand back in the earthquake desaster in Haiti and donated a sum of 1 million dollars for the victims. That is exactly the amount China […]

Foreign Policy Watch

17 Januar, 2010 (18:29) | Politics | By: pooq

At least this blog leads from special Syrian politics blogs to a more general foreign politics blog. Nevertheless I am caught in politics again and there is no end in sight. Politics always is a dangerous theme (what is not?) as one is easily branded as a conservative or liberal. But I remember that I […]

Syria Comment

17 Januar, 2010 (17:01) | Politics | By: pooq

„Has Obama Outsourced the Job of Chastizing Israel to Turkey?“ the author asks as the US government has been quite silently in the latest disgruntlement in the Syrian-Turkish relations. In the end Israel had to apologize for it’s treatment of the Turkey’s ambassador. Israel for years has been the key stone of US politics in […]

This Day in Syria

17 Januar, 2010 (16:22) | Politics | By: pooq

I think this blog is the Syrian version of those „this day in history websites“. So I am curious whether they would find a news for every day in history. And what would they post in the next year on the same day? Well, actually there seems nothing important in the history today but on […]

The Majlis

17 Januar, 2010 (14:53) | News, Politics | By: pooq

This blog obviously seems to be a news blog. And the header of the current post is: „Taliban leader Hakimullah Mehsud likely injured in drone strike“. An US drone has attacked a former religious school near Razmak in North Waziristan. In this attack a handful suspected Taliban had been killed and Hakimullah Mehsud has been […]

Waq al-Waq

15 Januar, 2010 (19:45) | Politics | By: pooq

Waq al-Waq. I don’t know what that means. And the subtitile is not very helpful for me: „Those of you who are familiar with the story cycle of Sayf bin Dhi Yazan, or the work of Muhammad Mahmud al-Zubayri or even, and I’m reaching here, Yaqut al-Hamawi’s Mu’ajim al-Buldan will understand.“ But the author has […]

Wings Over Iraq

15 Januar, 2010 (19:10) | News, Politics | By: pooq

„They’re Heading for the Medical Frigate…“ „They“ requested „the US Navy’s hospital ship, the USNS Comfort“ to help the victims in Haiti and the whole Caribbean area which has lately been struck by earthquake. So the „Medical aid for the Haiti earthquake is now a military-style op“. I haven’t considered neither noticed that before as […]

Kings of War

15 Januar, 2010 (16:48) | Politics | By: pooq

As far as I remember even in medieval times there have been few kings at all. And after that era their interest in participating themselves in a war did strongly cease. So who are they, the King of wars? „Are you experienced?“ (Yes, your majesty) So here we go. Mark Urban, „one of our finest […]
