Just a few days ago, Trump announced the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria. There is no strategy for the Middle East, neither in Washington nor in Europe.

This monument that pays tribute to him presents a number of ...
The 39 Indians apparently killed by Daesh (the so-called IS) in Iraq must have come to the region like so many of us, dreaming of a better and secure future for their children. The list of Daesh's high crimes against humanity has been endless. But this must be one of their worst and most heinous. There's not ...

Westerns are so synonymous with the legend that is America that it's little wonder that from their heyday in the 1950s until today, they've played a key role in shaping our perception of ourselves, as well as the world's opinion of us.

The firing of US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was inevitable but Trump's leadership style of running the administration as his personal fiefdom likely means that the US State Department is just getting a change of face, not a change of culture. The “moron” quip might have been the first nail in the coffin for ...
The Xi administration is moving ahead with building up its air and naval forces to counter those of the United States. It will deploy top-of-the-line stealth fighters, while also aiming at building a new nuclear aircraft carrier.

So this International Women's Day, let's look to the Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom as a model that all of us, no matter our background, can follow.

As a practising pharmacist that has seen us change from 'counting pills' to provision of clinical services, its disheartening to see us devalued once again. We are not asking for more pay and during current economic times, we are grateful for our jobs and steady wages. But devaluing services patients have ...
While the answers are not difficult, implementing solutions have been nearly impossible – as those of us, like me, who have been “gender advisers” in the humanitarian world, know well. White men in powerful positions do not want to give up their power and privilege which, too often, includes sexual abuse ...
Many of us can suffer from this unknowingly. It might lead to low self-esteem, depression and anxiety.

In 1958, 73 percent of us trusted the government to do the right thing all or most of the time, according to a Pew Research Center Poll. Last year, 18 percent did.

Most of us can agree on current effects that are a threat to our way of life: air pollution, ever-growing mountains of trash and increased demands on diminishing water. A famous quote says it all, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.” We can't keep doing what we are ...
Call me a hopeless optimist, but I'm sure the United States and the rest of us will survive this insane presidency. I simply do not believe that Donald Trump will fundamentally change the U.S. or even the world. He's too chaotic for that. Above all, though, Trump is not America. I have come to this realization ...
Separately, the Pew Global Attitudes Project measures foreign opinion of the United States.

In a column on media distrust, I wrote that I have no interest in being trusted by that large cohort of us for whom facts command no respect and for whom truth is just a speed bump on the road to crazy town.

No phone while driving, a point worth repeating. The first rule of smartphone etiquette is obvious and yet too many of us ignore it on a regular basis: absolutely no smartphone use while driving.

The rebuttal of world opinion shows how far Poland's nationalist leadership has come in two years with its quest to defect from the European mainstream.

Many of us who are part of the human rights movement in Pakistan did not have to do the hard bits – the dangerous stuff – and we ignored the misery with a clear conscience since there was Asma for that. It was in masterly hands, being taken care of. The victims she stood up for have been orphaned, and ... Pentagon Papers

This is troubling at a moment when a recent Gallup Poll found that a mere 16% of people in Latin America approve of Trump and only 24% approve of US leadership writ large (a drop from nearly 50% in 2016).
