Trump says IS leader ‘killed in US operation’ in Syria

President Donald Trump announced on Sunday that fugitive Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi died in a raid by U.S. special forces in northwest Syria, in a major blow to the jihadist group. Baghdadi killed himself during the raid by igniting a suicide vest, Trump said in a televised address from the White House. Test results from the aftermath of the raid had positively identified Baghdadi, he said. “He was a sick and depraved man and now he’s gone,” Trump said. Baghdadi had long been sought by the United States,…

Nude photos of Diane Shima Rwigara threaten to derail her bid to unsit Incumbant Paul Kagame

35-year-old Diane Shima Rwigara is about to find out how hard running for President of Rwanda can be. On Friday, May 5, 2017, the nude photos of Rwanda’s leading female presidential candidate leaked on the Internet. As we went to press, there are no strong leads on how the pictures surfaced online but there are whispers that it was a job from her ‘enemies’- the ruling party.

There Will Be No Palestinian State Under Netanyahu’s Watch

President Trump should not be swayed by Netanyahu’s duplicitous argument, however convincing it might sound, that he is committed to a two-state solution when in fact he has opposed and will continue to reject in principle the creation of an independent Palestinian state under any circumstances. Netanyahu’s repeated assertions that he is ready to negotiate with the Palestinians unconditionally is hollow because he knows that President Abbas will not enter into negotiations unless Israel suspends the continuing expansion of settlements and the creeping annexation of Palestinian land, which prevents the…

Trump Presidency several times more dangerous than Obama’s

Trump’s Daunting Foreign Challenges

If nothing else, the 2016 elections have once again reaffirmed America’s solid democratic system. Without any major incidents, tens of millions of Americans went to polling stations across the land, voted for the candidate of their choice, and readied themselves, as always, for the peaceful transfer of power. I believe that even those who were deeply disappointed with the results of the election will sooner than later rise above the fray, put the nation’s interests first, and work to build a more wholesome union. 60 SHARES Share on Facebook Tweet…
