A Croatian To Compete For The UN Secretary-General Position

Croatia, the War, and the Future

Croatian candidate for UN Secretary General

The wheels are reeling fast towards the day, in about a year, when the world will know who is replacing Ban Ki-moon as UN Secretary-General. The race to succeed Ban Ki-moon is well under way as possible candidates line up through the media and political analysts – as potential candidates and the selection process fill the agenda of intense debates. The 2016 appointment will come during these times of the agitating and concerning resurfacing of tensions between East and West – this time over Syria and Ukraine (in particular); in the days many see as cementing a new Cold War between Russia and the West and these tensions continue creating the most difficult challenges the UN has had to face and deal with in more than a generation.

Thinking Aloud: Why Iraq Isn’t Arming the Sunnis

Not What You Might Think

May 30, 2015 by Darius 

The word is that the United States is getting impatient with Iraq over the fight against ISIS.  Specifically, the US is unhappy that Iraq is taking baby steps, at best, towards creating a strong Sunni fighting force to go against ISIS.  But the question remains: why on Earth would the Iraqi government do such a thing?

Despite periodic rhetoric to the contrary, Iraq’s government remains dedicated first and foremost to maintaining the dominant position of the country’s Shia majority.  Although Iraq’s Shias have long been numerically dominant, the country has been ruled by the Sunni minority for centuries.  Made-in-USA democracy brought the Shias to power in 2005.  Ever since, the Shias have been intent on consolidating their hold on power, and the Sunnis have been both ticked off and often downright oppressed.  It is interesting to compare the map of the 2005 Iraqi parliamentary…
