It is Wednesday 9-December-2015. Only the day before former Albania's Finance Minister Arben Malaj has invited me to present "The Drama Of Albania" before his elite master's students at the Faculty of Economics of the University of Tirana.
In this carnage, both the Damascus dictatorship of Bashar Al-Assad, which is supported by the Iranian regime, and the ultra-Wahhabi "Islamic State" that opposes the civil resistance to Bashar, are guilty.
