Talking Turkey

TURKEY - There was so much hope. When Finland and Sweden officially applied for NATO membership last May, abandoning decades of neutrality in Helsinki and more than a century of nonalignment in Stockholm, US and European officials celebrated the historic step as a major strategic defeat for Russia, stemming from its full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

‘There Is a Real Sense That the Apocalypse Is Coming’

USA - A former evangelical tracks the rise of white Christian nationalism — and looks ahead to where the movement goes next. The American Redoubt movement represents the many Christian nationalists who are saying, “We’re going to move to a part of the country where we can really gather together in a separatist Christian society, and we’re going to prepare for the coming Civil War and the collapse of the United States, so that when that happens, we will be ready to rebuild it in our image.” Trump’s power and influence are in question. They’re in flux at the moment. But I think Trumpism — and Christian Trumpism in particular — are alive and well.

Nobody told me we’re at war – NATO state's president

CROATIA - Commenting on the German foreign minister’s declaration that Europe is “fighting a war against Russia,” Croatian President Zoran Milanovic said on Thursday that this was news to him, and wished Berlin better luck than in WWII.
