Huntington's Conflicts, Fukuyama's World - My Sunday column, on Russian grand strategy and Ukrainian turmoil, doubles as the latest installment in my semi-recurring series dedicated to the idea that ours is still essentially a Francis Fukuyaman world — that is, a world in which the West’s combination of liberal cosmopolitanism and democratic capitalism has no ideological rivals worthy of the name. To elaborate a little on that theme and its significance, let me quote from a Walter Russell Mead essay that ran in the Journal late last week, under the Fukuyama-invoking headline “Putin Knows History Hasn’t Ended”: … this episode is confirmation that the problem that has haunted Western statesmanship since 1989 is still with us. Both President Obama and the many-headed collection of committees that constitutes the decision-making apparatus of the EU believe that the end of the Cold War meant an end to geopolitics.….This is not so much an intellectual error as a political miscalculation.

A total of 217 Labour, Conservative, Liberal Democrat and nationalist MPs voted against war, on an amendment saying the case was "not yet established", with early estimates putting the Labour rebellion at 140 - up 17 from the vote last month. The government's own motion, allowing for military action, was easily carried by 412 votes to 149. It is thought 83 Labour MPs voted against their government. And with thousands of anti-war protestors outside Westminster - and at least two interrupting the debate from the public gallery - it has proved one of the most tense and unpredictable nights in recent political history.

Building relationships, creating value CEO insights blog <a href=" RSS feed</a> Global Annual Review 2013 Atlas of Urban Expansion Massive urbanization, accompanied by the rapid expansion of cities and metropolitan regions and the sprawling growth of megacities the world over, is one of the most important transformations of our planet. Much of this explosive growth has been unplanned. Cities in developing countries have been unprepared for absorbing the many millions of the rural poor that are still crowding into informal settlements. These cities are now scheduled to double their urban population in the next thirty years, and possibly triple the land area. And while in industrialized countries the great transformation into an urban society is largely completed, there are growing concerns about continuing low-density sprawl and its deleterious environmental consequences - the effects on carbon emissions, energy use, and the loss of prime agricultural lands. Urban expansion, in short, is now a global concern.

Testosterone Enanthate - Steroids Profile Testosterone Enanthate a long acting form of the parent hormone testosterone. In this particular case, the parent hormone has been attached to the Enanthate ester to delay its release into the bloodstream over several days. Background Testosterone was first synthesized by being isolated from an animal source in 1935. Many different esters, including enanthate, have been attached to the parent hormone since then. Testosterone Enanthate is the most popular form of testosterone prescribed everywhere in the world except for the United States, where the very similar Testosterone Cypionate is typically preferred.

Impeach Tony Blair: As Iraq burns, Parliament should put this deluded liar on trial, writes SIMON HEFFER By Simon Heffer for the Daily Mail Published: 00:29 GMT, 17 June 2014 | Updated: 00:30 GMT, 17 June 2014 With allies of Al Qaeda running amok in Iraq and heading for Baghdad, the disastrous legacy of Britain's entanglement there with the invasion of 2003 becomes ever more blindingly obvious. Obvious to everyone, that is, except the man who ordered it.
