What are the political aspirations of the Oil Fields?
The medievals were only too right in taking nolo episcopari as the best reason a man could give to others for making him a bishop. Give me a king whose chief interest in life is stamps, railways, or race-horses; and who has the power to sack his Vizier (or whatever you care to call him) if he does not like the cut of his trousers.

Government is an abstract noun meaning the art and process of governing and it should be an offence to write it with a capital G or so as to refer to people.

Turkey has announced that they have started an offensive against Syrian troops in the Idlib area. They stressed that they don't want a military confrontation with Russia.

Syria denies Turkish claims that one of their planes has been downed.

There is another theory which states that this has already happened.”
