We’re moving to Monday updates from now on.  Friday seemed rather random, and quite frankly it’s nice to have Sunday afternoon to bang out an article, especially as I prepare to repatriate to the United States where Sundays are days off.  Expect a piece on Monday about Mosul, ISIS, and the future of the Levant.  It’ll be super!  In the meantime, enjoy this stock photo of a penguin plotting world domination.  cropped-world-domination.jpg
