QUOTE OF THE DAY: George Friedman, Founder and CEO of Stratfor

An atlas is more than a book. It is more than maps. It is an introduction to the way the world works. The oceans, rivers, mountains and deserts shape a nation, not only terms of its geography, but in terms of its soul. The soul of a landlocked desert nation is profoundly different than a temperate country with a long coastline. One lives in a constant struggle with nature, the other an easier, more comfortable one. What shapes the soul also defines relations with other nations. - George Friedman, Founder and CEO of Stratfor

Half truth is often a great lie... Benjamin Franklin!

Stratfor is CIA disinformation wall to wall, Texas funded and Texas based. No credibility whatsoever should be accorded to Stratfor, it's like Sorcha Faal & Debkafile....with this one, the CIA disinformation machine scored a home run. It has been picked up by hundreds of websites....

Debka is a fraud also. It should be completely ignored. Every time someone goes to the site, he is giving money to a bunch of scam artists. Debka invents fake news in order to get eyeballs....
To the best of my knowledge its one or two private people exploiting people’s interest in middle east related news. They make money from ads as the content is all invented by them. They are quite creative and make sure their stories do not sound crazy but it is all fiction with no real news.

Hello! I understand this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask.
Does managing a well-established website such as yours take a lot of work?

I'm completely new to operating a blog however I do write in my diary everyday. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able
to share my own experience and feelings online. Please
let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring blog
owners. Appreciate it!
