Katyn_massacre_1

A picture taken on July 17, 2014, shows the wreckages of the malaysian airliner carrying 298 people from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur after it crashed, near the town of Shaktarsk, in rebel-held east Ukraine. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said on Thursday that the Malaysia Airlines jet that crashed over rebel-held eastern Ukraine may have been shot down."We do not exclude that the plane was shot down and confirm that the Ukraine Armed Forces did not fire at any targets in the sky," Poroshenko said in a statement posted on the president's website.

By, Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey

By, Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey
Perhaps as American & European leaders warn that an AL-Qaeda or ISIS seeks the destruction of “our way of life,” we should come to see the Putin danger similarly, but unchallenged he actually has the capacity to deliver on the threat.

Blog Report: IS SYRIA-TURKEY WAR NEXT? By Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey
It is not war yet, but Turkey & allies have determined this time to respond differently & open door to potential military intervention.  More critically, Turkey’s Parliament adopted legislation effectively providing Erdogan Government & military to send forces across border and/or undertake whatever other measures may be appropriate.

Blog Report: KOFI ANNAN’S RESIGNATION NEW OPPORTUNITY FOR SYRIA PEACE? By Ambassador Mo
Assad, Kremlin & Beijing had counted on Kofi Annan’s diplomacy to effectively act as buffer against more sanctions or greater engagement.
