Si usted siente que después de las elecciones pasadas son los pacientes los que dirigen el manicomio, créame, no es el único. El lunático número uno es, sin duda, el mismo presidente, quien la semana pasada en Miami demostró una vez más que su concepto (o su comprensión) de la realidad no pasa de los “reality shows”.

If you feel that after the last election the inmates are running the asylum, you are not alone. The main lunatic seems to be the president himself, who last week in Miami showed once again that his concept (or his grasp) of reality does not go beyond, well, very bad “reality shows.”

[OP-ED]: The Middle East morass

 06/13/2017 - 14:50
Si la administración Trump desea estabilidad en el Oriente Medio debería ayudar a mediar un nuevo equilibrio de poder. Esto no puede suceder puramente en términos sauditas. Irán es un gran jugador en la región, con influencia real y su rol deberá ser reconocido. EFE
English

Donald Trump returned from his first overseas trip convinced that he had unified America’s historic Arab allies, dealt a strong blow against terrorism and calmed the waters of an unruly Middle East. Since then we have seen a series of terror attacks in Europe and the Middle East, and an open split within the Arab world. What is going on?

If the Trump administration wants stability in the Middle East, it should help broker a new balance of power. This cannot happen purely on Saudi terms. Iran is a major player in the region, with real influence, and its role will have to be recognized. EFE

 For human rights organization Amnesty International, Trump's proposed border wall - which even some members of the Border Patrol fail to see as an effective barrier - will only enrich criminal organizations involved in extorting money from immigrants on the Mexican side.
