It is irresponsible and foolish to speculate who outwitted whom in the world where there are lots of problems, where cooperation between Russia and USA is needed so much, and to stoop to the level of such cheap statements...

I have seen writers, apparently sympathetic to the Cuban Revolution, claiming that Raul Castro has 'betrayed' the Revolution, or that an avalanche of US capital is about to arrive and take over the island.

André Villas-Boas is a master in football management. Those of us who have followed his career closely understand how important he is in this area and how much more he will contribute in future. The recent victory of his Zenit Saint Petersburg is a very good example of his qualities.
For Pakistan it has been a long slow descent into hell. The brutal, mindless mass murder of 133 children at a school in Peshawar on 16 December confirms that we have arrived. Much has been written and said about the depravity and inhumanity of the attackers. But no net of words can capture just how far these people have fallen from the human norm
