Who Is Senator Lindsey Graham?

This is going to be a nice and simple intro to Senator Lindsey Graham. Why him? Well, I stumbled across his name in a news article and realised that he was just a faceless blur to me. He may as well be a mannequin for all he meant to me. And I figured, as aContinue reading “Who Is Senator Lindsey Graham?”

We Can’t Forget Libya

It’s hard to believe that the Libyan Civil War only started back in 2014. It feels a lot longer, and it’s pretty sad to think that it’s never been resolved. There are a lot of parties involved, and I’m going to cover that here as simply as I can: The House of Representatives: Libyan NationalContinue reading “We Can’t Forget Libya”

But my guessContinue reading “What On Earth Are The Idlib Talks?”

What The Hell’s Happening With The Armenian Army?

Raise your hands if you’re from Armenia! I’ve got to admit, I’ve not had much exposure to Armenia. I don’t know a lot about the culture, or the economy, or the history. It’s what I love about writing this blog, I get to learn new things and share them with people. And today, I’ve foundContinue reading “What The Hell’s Happening With The Armenian Army?”

Argentinian Crisis – A Financial Quandary

When you think of Argentina, what do you associate it with? I always think amazing steaks! Argentinian steaks are so good, it’s unbelievable. And I would have thought that for a country that can export such a costly product, their economy would be stable. Maybe not brilliant, but okay. Turns out, I was wrong.

Portugal Offers A Helping Hand

With Britain leaving the EU, British travellers to European countries will find themselves in need of medical insurance, and this will really catch a lot of people out. Before now, British tourists were covered by the European Health Insurance Card, aka EHIC. This little card is great! But unfortunately for us Brits, we’re having toContinue reading “Portugal Offers A Helping Hand”
