Apparently, one aspect of American greatness that Donald Trump seeks to recreate is the Great Recession of 2008. He calls for a complete repeal of all the rules that were adopted to govern the financial industry in response to that crisis, restoring to it the freedom to create unlimited debt throughout the economy, with no requirement that serious attention be given to the ability of the indebted to meet their obligations

7--Aleppo turns in Syria's favor

In the past year, many countries have changed their position on the Syrian crisis in favor of Assad. For example, in December 2015, the Pakistani Foreign Minister said that his country opposed any attempt to topple Assad.

More recently, the President of Egypt, Abdel Fattah al-Sissi indicated his support for the Syrian government. "Our priority is to support national armies, for example in Libya to exert control over Libya territory and deal with extremist elements. The same with Syria and Iraq," al-Sissi said. Syria and Egypt were part of a political union from 1958 until 1961, known as the United Arab Republic. Although the war is far from over, it seems highly probable that the Syrian government will emerge victorious.
