About the only reason to hope for a Clinton victory is her flawed opponent, Donald Trump. Yet despite his many failings, he remains superior to Clinton when it comes to foreign policy.

Going To War Should Be A Last, Not First, Resort For The U.S.

A couple of Rand Corporation scholars have discovered America's problem vis-à-vis Russia: Washington isn't willing to use its military as much. This has given Moscow an apparently unfair advantage in challenging America. Maybe Washington should reconsider its policy, they suggest.

Hevel and Kayin in Srebrenica

Mirnes Kovac

It is important to learn what makes some people, who otherwise look "normal" to hate others, who take part in crimes or simply stand by and witness systematic killing and elimination of others. The core teachings of our holy books seem to provide clues of this primordial sin of human from the very beginning of our existence on earth.

Dancing With Arab Mujahedeen In The Hills Of Bosnia

Yehia Ghanem | Posted 07.08.2016 | World
Yehia Ghanem

Aside from the growing negativity towards the US in Afghanistan, its role in Bosnia had also come to be viewed suspiciously. In the autumn of 1994, during my coverage of the war there, I received information from a reliable source that bands of Arab mujahedeen had arrived from Afghanistan seven months before.

How The Taliban And The US fell Out Of Love

Just as the Western media had been unwittingly misinformed about the relationship between the Taliban and Osama bin Laden, so too had it failed to grasp the ideological differences between the Taliban and Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda.

What Does American Bread Say About Our Culture?

No matter where I go in the U.S. -- New York City, Washington, D.C., small-town bakeries, or the most elaborate artisan bread stands I can find -- I don't find that warm, steamy stuff of my childhood. And that leaves a little hole in my heart.

Muhammad #Ali's Humility, My Greatest Lesson

Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey | Posted 06.04.2016 | World
Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey

Muhammad Ali defined my assimilation as an American and growth as global citizen. He was so different that we might have expected him to go to the grave screaming of his greatness. However, we all saw a piece of ourselves in him, and his greatest character strength was that he saw in everyone he met a connection to the higher.

I was 16 years old when I ran for student government in my high school. After a long and trying campaign, I won. Until a boy made a joke that I should be impeached and assassinated because I was a foreign-born Muslim.

Why I Didn't Study Abroad

After years of fleeing, I've come to a conclusion that every version of myself eventually reaches: traveling is never the escape that we romanticize in books and movies. Living in another country for a few months or a year is incredibly difficult, stressful and confusing.

How to Be a Good Loser: A Guide to Being a Refugee

Dragana Kaurin

It's generally not war that refugees choose to remember, but the people who help you. My mother's colleague who snuck us out of Serbia, French volunteers who took refugee kids camping, and those who came to welcome us at the airport when we were resettled in Ohio; those are the people I think of daily. I hope Basel finds such people on his path too.
