Remember sanctions on Russia? Europe hopes you don't
It seems like an awful long time ago that one of the most prominent threats most Europeans feared was an increasingly aggressive Russia and an unstable Ukraine. To be fair, the concern of terrorist attacks, as well as the refugee crisis was well underway before the turmoil on its...

Is Turkey really the ally the West thinks it is?
When looking at the current state of the Middle East, there really isn’t one specific action or country for that matter that has caused the turmoil the region finds itself in. A common belief is that the region is overwhelmed with weak states that need foreign intervention to keep...
