Biographies of famous figures, accounts of battles, famous crimes and trials, political landmarks […]

Imagine, if you will, a brand new social media site which allows you to keep up with friends and family, create groups, publicize your own life and which have over three hundred fifty million active users. Of course, we all have one specific site in mind, but this one is meant to be different. How […]

Review: And The Mountains Echoed

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 5, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

Ask almost anyone in the Western world what they know about Afghanistan and you will hear tales of war, of invasion, of poverty and terrorism. The land, many believe, is a desert filled with nomads and surrounded by mountains where terror cells train their members for attacks against the West, especially against the United States. […]
