A nation obsessed with the notion of war Jun. 28th, 2015 @ 08:29 pm
As expected, the anniversary of the defeat of Nazi Germany was turned into another militaristic show-off in Russia. The event was everywhere around the news. At some point the patriotic craze even reached ridiculous extremes, for example the Gazeta newspaper came up with a front-page title, "Germany Attacks the USSR!" With the word "LIVE" in the caption. One'd think, what? Not again!? But just as the reader is gearing up to grab their grandpa's dirk and rush to the nearest reservist gathering point, they venture reading past the title line.

Turkey election: ruling party loses majority as pro-Kurdish HDP gains seats

In a nutshell, Erdogan's AKP is about to lose the comfortable parliamentary majority that they were enjoying, and which had started giving them the impression that they're invincible. Curiously, the Kurdish party HDP has passed the gargantuan 10% threshold to enter parliament for the first time, and looks likely to suddenly end up with 78+ seats.
