VIETNAM SCIENCE UNIVERSITY LEADS TERTIARY EDUCATION REFORMS

VIETNAM SCIENCE UNIVERSITY LEADS TERTIARY EDUCATION REFORMS

 

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

طهارة الثورة و نجس العمل السياسي!!!

يكثر الحديث في هذه الأوقات عن قذارة السياسيين و

عمالتهم لجهات أجنبية و استخباراتية سورية و عن تخليهم عن الثورة و الشعب في سبيل

تحقيق مصالحهم الأنية. و عادة ما توضع هذه الصورة على خلفية نقاء الشباب الذين

يحملون شعلة الثورة و يضحون بالغالي و الرخيص في سبيلها.


هذا التبسيط يجعلنا ننسى بعض الحقائق العامة التي

لا تتغير كثيراً بتغير الثورات:…

رأي في العمل المسلح

في الفترة الأخيرة كثرت الدعوات للعمل المسلح

سوريا للمطالبة بالمزيد من الديمقراطية و لإلغاء حكم الفرد. ضمت هذه الجهات تيارات

عدة من الشيوعيون و القوميون و الأخوان المسلمين و حتى…

التغيرات الدولية و الحركات الشعبية العربية

منذ سقوط المنظومة السوفييتية في تسعينات القرن

الماضي انحصر اهتمام الولايات المتحدة الأمريكية خصوصاً و الغرب عموماً على التأكد

من بسط نفوذهم على مناطق النفوذ السوفييتية سابقاً. السبب الرئيسي لبسط النفوذ هو

ربط هذه الدول بالمنظومة الغربية الاقتصادية و منع بروز قوى منافسة و تجنب أن تصبح

هذه الدول ساحات لحرب باردة قادمة في حال بروز أي قوى صاعدة كالصين و روسيا.…

Book review: A Better Basra. Struggling for Strategy and Sanity in Iraq

Caroline Jaine's account of her time as a communications expert for the British Foreign Office in Basra, Iraq is a frank, unpretentious and un-cynical tale of how the mother of three survived in the militaristic bubble of Basra in 2006. This smart and inexpensive ebook is a great read-especially for those not yet war-, conflict- and development-hardened souls who want to get a better idea of what it feels like next time academic experts talk abstractly about…
