It had the effect of drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap and you want me to regret it? The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter: We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam war.” This statement went further than merely boasting at the instigation of war and the ultimate collapse of the Soviet Union. In his memoir, entitled “From the Shadows,” Robert Gatesformer CIA director under Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush and secretary of defense under both George W. Bush and Barack Obamadirectly confirmed this covert operation began six months prior to the Soviet invasion with the actual intention of luring the Soviets into a Vietnam-style quagmire. Brzezinski knew exactly what he was doing. The Soviets were then bogged down in Afghanistan for approximately ten years, fighting an endless supply of American-supplied weapons and trained fighters.

“From their bases, the Saudi-trained imams propagated Wahhabism’s tenets: the supremacy of Shariah law as well as ideas of violent jihad and takfirism, which authorizes the killing of Muslims considered heretics for not following its interpretation of Islam. . . . Charitable assistance often had conditions attached. Families were given monthly stipends on the condition that they attended sermons in the mosque and that women and girls wore the veil.” Saudi Arabia’s government has begun to slow many of its most egregious practices. It is now being run, de facto, by a young, intelligent reformer, Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who appears to be refreshingly pragmatic, in the style of Dubai’s visionary leader, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum. But so far the Saudi reforms have mostly translated into better economic policy for the kingdom, not a break with its powerful religious establishment.

Teams want prospects who can grow into elite players, not necessarily guys who grew into themselves and posted quality production for years at the collegiate level. They're older and usually don't have as much room to grow. This predicament tanks Jordan Bell's stock a bit. The Oregon product played three years with the program, most recently averaging 10.9 points and 8.8 rebounds per game while shooting 63.6 percent from the floor. His coming in at 6'9" and 225 pounds makes it a bit hard to project his position at the next level. The good news for Bell? He came away as one of the combine's biggest winners thanks to his style and athletic testing, as DraftExpress ' Julian Applebome pointed out: "Bell's do it all defensive and rebounding style of play has definitely played well at the Combine, and it would not be surprising to see him potentially get looks from NBA teams at the end of the first round of some draft boards.

If there's one type of build we don't see enough of, it's the 80s and 90s sport bike resto-mod. We love those endurance-style racers with their chunky bodyworkharking back to a time when motorcycles were still fairly straightforward, and technology was only on the cusp of becoming complicated. It's a style that the Wrenchmonkees have pulled off spectacularly here—except they didn't pick an older bike for their project. Instead, this wild retro is based on an even wilder donor: the supercharged Kawasaki Ninja H2. The commission (and bike) came from Dutch gear manufacturer, REV'IT!. They wanted a bike that followed the same Tailored Technology' philosophy as their urban range; casual and stylish on the outside, high tech on the inside. REV'IT! already had a soft spot for the H2: their sponsored rider, Kenan Sofuoğlu, hit the 400 km/h (249 mph) mark on one just last year.

Save for the most fearless, rock-hurling shebab , everyone takes cover, or flees. This past Friday, I found out that popular protest Nabi Saleh-style is a very different affair. Little Nabi Saleh, population 500 (all from one family — the Tamimis), has had a reputation for militant protest since late 2009, when their spring and adjacent agricultural lands were stolen by Halamish settlement, a stone’s throw to the south. Several villagers have been killed in the course of these demonstrations, including Mustafa Tamimi, hit in the chest by a high velocity tear gas canister. I had no idea how militant peaceful, popular protest could be. Last Friday, a hundred villagers ranging in age from nine or ten to senior citizens pointed fingers, shook fists and waved flags in the faces of heavily armed police. They pushed the cops back, sitting down on the pavement when the teargas began to fly.

PETALING JAYA: When Dr Pablo Richard put aside his medical practice as a plastic surgeon to build watches instead, some asked if he was out of his mind. "Some people said I was crazy, that I had invested so much money and time to study medicine for six years, to just throw it away after practising as a surgeon for just three years," Richard told theSun during a recent visit to Kuala Lumpur. "I said it's not that I didn't like practising medicine, but it was not enough to keep me going. I liked it (being a doctor), but I didn't love it," said the 31-year-old who hails from Basel, Switzerland. "Timepieces have always been my passion since I was young, so I wanted to do this although the Swiss watch-making industry may already be saturated and controlled by the big brand names," he added. Richard said what he also likes about watchmaking is that it requires of him the same precision and high-technology instruments that he was accustomed to as a surgeon.

" Hart is also a willing defender. "Guys that have seen me play at Villanova know that I'm going to be the one that's defending, you know, down on the floor for a loose ball at the end of the game to seal a victory," Hart said, per Nadeau . "That's what I do and I think that's how I fit in." Teams looking for a future centerpiece probably aren't going to have much interest in Hart. However, teams looking for a solid role player who can bring toughness to both ends of the court are going to love him. I'd expect Hart to go in the late-first or early-second round of the draft and to become a valuable bench player as a rookie.

Industrial designs that make use of concrete may be all the rage in some circles, but the fact is that you will have difficulty finding any beautiful home that does not use wood elements. A popular building material that is just as effective in decorative use, wood brings an automatic warmth and coziness to even a modern space. The four homes featured in this post take a love of wood to another level. Not only are beautiful hardwood floors found throughout, but the natural grain carries up across the walls, into shelving units, cabinetry, and even across ceilings. The resulting style is lovely, bright, and welcoming in each case. Visualizer: dT Chu An open concept home works well with materials that come from the same family but do not match exactly. In this first home, wood is used from floor to ceiling but each different element has a slightly different grain or color.

In 1953 this film could describe most common applications for electronics because few everyday machines contained them. Your telephone, your typewriter, your oven, your food mixer, and a hundred other devices in your life were mechanical, not electronic. By contrast now it is rather uncommon for a device to be manufactured that does not contain some electronics, such has been the success of the microcontroller. We may not yet be living in a Jetsons -style future someone in the 1950s might have expected, but if you'd shown our devices to the engineers in the film, they might have commented that we're not far from it.
