This wasn’t the first instance of Cher tweeting about ISIS or Iraq—not by a long shot. “WE BLEW [MONEY] & LOST LIVES…In Bush’s [bullshit] War, But [America] MUST Pull [the] World [together] & Rid It Of ISIS. Cher’s position on the ISIS war isn’t as hawkish as, say, rapper Flavor Flav’s, who has called for a large international coalition, led by the United States, to invade Syria and Iraq and crush the terror group. Her more recent foreign-policy analysis has, however, earned her at least a few golf claps from the Washington, D. C. , national-security and foreign-policy community. “I think Cher is putting her finger on a real U. S. foreign-policy failure and I applaud her astuteness, and for recognizing it. ”. Gartenstein-Ross went on to concur with Cher’s assessment that it was a huge mistake that the Obama administration... “Cher recognizes that in a world where sub-state actors play a much more important role in politics…sometimes you have to engage those actors directly… If I could turn back time , I would find a way to fund the Sunni tribes. Despite her criticism of President Obama’s ISIS strategy, Cher is a hardcore liberal.
MARIUPOL, Ukraine — It was the worst five-day shift for the Donbas Battalion of Ukrainian volunteers in a long time: one soldier was killed, three were wounded. The front between Ukrainian and Russian-backed rebel positions was less than a kilometer wide and lay across a ghost village of shattered buildings called Shyrokyne, currently one of the hottest spots of Ukraine war. Driving to inspect front line artillery positions on Wednesday morning, the battalion's chief commander, nicknamed Gal, looked gloomy. The dull knocking of artillery could be heard in Shyrokyne, a village shelled day and night, where terrified people live in basements. “If we leave things as they are now, this conflict would last for decades, as it has in Karabakh,” the commander said, referring to the ethnic conflict over the Nagorno-Karabakh between Armenia and Azerbaijan. “Since the last Minsk peace agreement we have not had a single day without enemy fire,” he said. “Separatists shelled us with 100 mm and larger shells, which are supposed to be banned. Look at the holes in the ground and in the walls of our base,” Gal told The Daily Beast, pointing at a former summer resort hotel called Mayak, a half-ruined building currently serving as one of the front line's key positions, 12 kilometers away...

A few weeks ago, the man formerly known as the Bond King, Bill Gross, tweeted that shorting German bunds would be the trade of the century. As a result of a massive bond-buying program by the European Central Bank (ECB), the yields not only on German bunds but on all European debt had plunged to ridiculously low levels. Europe's Negative-Yield Market Threatens Every Nation Trillions of dollars of European debt were trading with negative yields. Speculators were front-running the ECB knowing that they could buy bonds and sell them back to ECB. Over the last couple of weeks, German bunds have sold off in one of the biggest bond routs in history.
