ISIS, US-led team fight for Syria town 2.10.2014 Asian Age: International
Turkish Kurds watch the fighting between ISIS and Kurdish forces to the west of Kobani, Syria, at the Turkey-Syria border— AP Kurdish fighters backed by US-led coalition airstrikes were locked in fierce fighting on Wednesday to prevent a key Syrian border town falling into the hands of Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) jihadists. It came as 30 children were reported dead in twin bombings that hit a school in the government-controlled central city of Homs, which has been devastated by the three-year civil war. Anti-jihadist airstrikes and heavy clashes in the besieged town of Ain al-Arab on the border with Turkey killed at least 18 people — nine militants and nine Kurdish fighters, monitors said.

Putins view of power was formed watching East Germany collapse | Mary Sarotte 2.10.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
25 years ago Russias president was a KGB officer in the chaos of Dresden. This explains the hardliner he is today Twenty-five years ago this week tumultuous scenes were unfolding in the East German city of Dresden: inside the central station, tens of thousands of people clashed violently with police, army and Stasi forces. And the chances are high that a 36-year-old KGB officer named Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin would have followed the chaos with his own eyes. The story of what happened in Dresden on 4 October was soon overshadowed by the peaceful fall of the Berlin Wall a month later. Yet understanding what Putin the KGB officer may have seen that day could hold the key to understanding how the Russian president sees the crisis in eastern Europe today. For someone who believed deeply in the cold war order, it was most likely an excruciating experience. It is clear that he returned home soon afterwards in disgust, full of bitterness that lingers to this day, with dramatic consequences. Thanks to ...
