The timely implementation of the Iran deal and Tehran's full compliance with its various provisions to date should not be viewed as just an accomplished goal, but as a continuing process that could take several years to determine its viability and the extent to which it impacts Iran's foreign and domestic policy.
After five decades of its existence and as an alliance that consists of 28 independent countries -- including three permanent UN Security Council members -- the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is one of the largest and the strongest collective defense alliance of its kind.

There are good reasons why we must act urgently if Syria's refugee children are not to become a lost generation. The average time that a refugee is out of country is well over a decade. If we do nothing, then thousands of refugee children may reach adulthood without ever setting foot in a classroom.
Dave Baker is a used car salesman on a mission to make Canada a more fair and equitable place. Go ahead and take a moment. Be skeptical. It took me six months to overcome my initial aversion to the predominant narrative of auto sales. I was sure that there was a catch. There had to be a bait-and-switch somewhere along the way.
Falling oil prices, combined with the costs of war and of housing refugees, is threatening the Kurdish Peshmerga's ability to fight ISIS.
Bernie Sanders' campaign has been very busy since Sunday night's Democratic debate, first defending Sanders' health care plan against attacks from Hillary Clinton and now defending climate scientists against attacks by Donald Trump.

Muslims claim their religion teaches peace, harmony, love and goodness while the actions of some so-called adherents to the faith prove contrary. How can it be that on the one hand, the religion teaches good while some Muslims commit evil?
The slash in fighter pay signals the latest setback for the terror group and lends new support to U.S. claims that its strategy to disrupt ISIS' revenue stream is working.
The time for smoke and mirrors is coming to a close, globally, and it is obvious that Iran is being turned into a scapegoat boogeyman by the Saudis and their allies (including United States Republicans). Human rights violations from Saudi Arabia must be kept in check.
CHINESE PRESIDENT Xi Jingping has effectively acknowledged that increasingly China will be unable to remain aloof to multiple crises in the Middle Eas...
Not only is the education of 65 million children disrupted today because of emergency, crisis and conflict -- but new projections we are working on at the International Commission on Financing Global Education Opportunity show that these children will continue to fall behind.

Saddam Hussein in the 1990s and currently Bashar al-Assad -- the heads of the Baath party in Iraq and Syria -- both played the religious card.
