The agreement was over former-President Barack Obama's decision to accept 1,250 economic refugees that had fled to Australia, in exchange for a number of immigrants from Honduras and other war-torn countries in America. Trump told Turnbull that he felt like a "dope" in the argumentative call that was leaked to the Washington Post in August. "This is going to kill me. I am the world's greatest person that does not want to let people into the...

ABU DHABI (SYNDICATION BUREAU) - The idea that the Syrian conflict was "winding down" was so widely believed that even sober-thinking analysts found it difficult to challenge. But what a difference a week can make. The war, instead, has reached a new peak. Within the space of a mere few days, Syrian rebels shot down a Russian jet, Kurdish fighters downed a Turkish helicopter and pro-government groups attacked United States-backed forces. Meanwhile, the US killed tens of pro-Assad fighters and over a dozen Russian citizens, the Syrian army shot down an Israeli F-16 and Israel downed an Iranian drone and launched its largest air strikes on Syria in decades. All that happened against the background of intensive regime attacks on opposition pockets in Ghouta and Idlib, which led to the death of an estimated 1,000 civilians in one week alone. No, war in Syria is far from winding down; instead, the last week has demonstrated how it has become a lot more complicated.
