Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani has called for collective efforts among Islamic countries to deal with the problems gripping the Muslim world, saying the issues must be resolved through “non-military” solutions. “If there is a problem in the Muslim world, we should make efforts [for the issue] to be resolved through non-military means,” the Iranian chief executive said in a Tuesday meeting with Sudan’s new Ambassador to Tehran Adel Ibrahim Mustafa. Rouhani further said “the problems and challenges facing the Islamic world have to be resolved through the participation of Muslim countries,” adding, “We hope not to witness war and bloodshed in the region in the future.”
The U.S. is killing far more people than intended in some drone strikes, according to a report likely to raise new questions about the Obama administration’s reliance on drones in its battle against Islamic terrorists. The Intercept, in a wide-ranging set of articles on the U.S. drone program, reported that in one five month-period, nearly 90 percent of people killed by strikes in an operation in northeastern Afghanistan were not the intended targets. The news outlet reports documents detailing Operation Haymaker show that the campaign, that lasted between January 2012 and February 2013, killed more than 200 people, but only 35 were the intended targets.

Putin has announced that his operation in Syria is more successful than the operations of the West.

Russian President Vladimir Putin defended his air and cruise-missile strikes on terror targets in Syria as two Saudi Arabian officials softened their government’s position on the fate of Bashar al-Assad.
Putin discussed his Syria campaign on Sunday with Saudi Arabia’s Defense Minister Mohammed Bin Salman, who signaled a willingness to let al-Assad remain in power longer, while the foreign ministers of both nations also met to consider the situation in Syria.
Wow, that’s a step.
Whatever your (western propaganda) view of Uncle Vlad, this is a great interview wherein he once again shows why he is so incredibly popular in Russia and formidable in the world. Bully for him!
At a time of icy relations with the U.S., Russian President Vladimir Putin gives a rare – and surprising – interview to 60 Minutes. Charlie Rose reports.
