U.S. lawmakers are increasingly concerned about Russian troop movements on the border with Ukraine and the prospect of an additional land grab, as both houses of Congress voted to slap sanctions on Russia and extend loan guarantees to Ukraine.
The Russian incursion into the sovereign country of Ukraine — an intrusion that allowed the vote for Crimea to secede — is another step in Russia's quest to restore the USSR.wa
President Obama on Monday angrily denied a cover-up by his administration in downplaying the role of terrorism in the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and accused Republican lawmakers of carrying out a partisan "sideshow" by investigating it.
Palestinians will oppose Israel nonviolently if the Jewish state proceeds with plans to build settlements between Jerusalem and the West Bank, the top Palestinian official in Washington said Friday.
Negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians can’t go anywhere good. Both Arab and Jew know it. President Obama poses as the honest broker, but he too knows that talk of a lasting resolution of differences is 100-proof moonshine.
That didn't take long. Less than a day after President Obama's re-election, the administration breathed new life into the United Nations' previously comatose treaty regulating guns.
Former Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi has been named U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's special envoy for the troubled Sahel region of Africa.

As the U.N. General Assembly convenes this week in New York, several leaders of mostly Muslim nations are suggesting that the world body consider sanctions on blasphemy, amid widespread protests against an amateur movie that denigrates Islam's Prophet Muhammad.
A year after President Obama largely defused a diplomatic showdown at the United Nations over Palestinian statehood, his difficulties with the Muslim world are multiplying rapidly as he prepares to address the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Sunday acknowledged deep differences with Russia over how to handle the crisis in Syria, saying she would continue to try to persuade Moscow to back increased international pressure on Syrian President Bashar Assad, even if such a step is unlikely.
The United Nations estimates that since the Syrian uprising began a year ago, more than 9,000 Syrians have been killed. A recent assessment by Council on Foreign Relations Senior Fellow Elliot Abrams puts the total number of Syrian refugees at almost a half-million. Worse, it appears that Syrian president Bashar Assad's forces are continuing to torture, imprison and kill Syrian civilians.
The role of religion in promoting links and dialogue across cultures and across continents moved into the spotlight earlier this month as the U.N. General Assembly marked the second annual World Interfaith Harmony Week.
American diplomats led a walkout at the U.N. General Assembly on Thursday as Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad issued a sweeping attack on the United States and major Western European nations, calling them "arrogant powers" ruled by greed and eager for military adventurism.
The World War II Allies recognized by war's end a need to establish a world organization as a tool to "maintain international peace and security" - providing a voice for all members. Created Oct. 24, 1945, it worked well initially. By the 1970s, however, nondemocratic member states realized this tool could be manipulated to counter the interests of democratic members. Today, the original intention of the democratic founding members of the United Nations has been drastically undermined. After a 65-year journey, the United Nations' good intentions have become a road less traveled - one over which a nondemocratic cabal runs roughshod.
