More often than not, their work ethic puts ours to shame.

Azerbaijan is currently launching a massive attack against Armenia.

It looks like Turkey may have been stoking the fires there.

A Turkish fighter has shot down an Armenian fighter jet.

Turkey and Russia are both involved in this conflict. Iran is supposed to be working behind the scenes as well.

Yep...disputed territory. A region called Nagorno-Karabakh, it seems.

I'm guessing one side wants it to be purely Nagorno. ...the other side wants it to be Karabakh.
Or something along those lines.

Russia is backing Armenia. Turkey backs Azerbaijan.

There's some disputed territory but there's also an issue of a massive pipeline, which is why Russia and Turkey are involved.

The Trans-Anatolian Pipeline, maybe??
I picked it as likely....there's a few in that region, and they all seem to piss-off one group or another.

‘I think our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think that’s what I sussed when I was sixteen and twelve, way down the line, but I expressed it differently all through my life. It’s the same thing I’m expressing all the time. But now I can put it into that sentence that I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal ends. If anybody can put on paper what our government and the American government etc and the Russian, Chinese, what they are actually trying to do, and what they think they’re doing, I’d be very pleased to know what they think they are doing. I think they’re all insane. But I’m liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That’s what’s insane about it.’
- John Lennon, 6 June 1968.

Eyes
Like a sunrise
Like a rainfall
Down my soul
And I wonder
I wonder why you look at me like that
What you're thinking
What's behind

35% of all the US dollars ever printed, were printed last year.

Yet 40% of Americans do not even have a $400 dollar reserve fund.

How does the UK compare to that in terms of reserve funds. I mean from a numerical standpoint, because the $$$ is always valued lower than the £....??
