Syria conflict: Jordan's Zaatari refugee camp from the air - BBC News
Many of those forced to leave their homes during the Syrian conflict have taken refuge in neighbouring countries, and 80,000 of them are now living in a three-square-mile piece of the desolate Jordanian desert - home to the sprawling Zaatari refugee camp. King Abdullah says his country is at "boiling point" because of the influx of refugees.

Foreign Affairs Expert Leslie Gelb: Masters in Business (Audio) by Bloomberg View | Free Listening on SoundCloud
Leslie Gelb, wrote Pentagon Papers. Which Ellsberg leaked (Whistleblower) - // Back in the days, national interests and force was expressed in war and seldomly in economic embargos (Napoleon tried that against British Empire) and there were economic skirmishes (oil/diesel, rubber) in the run-up to WW2 and the first couple of months before USA officially entered WW2. TODAY! National interests are only expressed in economic terms with trade embargoes, tariffs, trade deals and protectionism. Only little military skirmishes here and there and when, the nation tries to hide them from the publics eye (through rouge nations for hire army/special forces, a nations secret services supplying the underground arms trade that doesn't show up on its balance sheet or one of their nations manufacturers. West excluded Russia from recent G8 summit in Munich and made it G7. Russia/Europe/USA playing game of chicken of economic escalation. Or using corporate actors & new cyber war!

Today's Uncertain Future Calls For Observation and Patience, Not Boldness and Strategy |
Not one of the signature foreign policy initiatives conceived in Obama’s first term has borne fruit. When it came to making a fresh start with the Islamic world, responsibly ending the “dumb” war in Iraq (while winning the “necessary” one in Afghanistan), “resetting” US-Russian relations, and “pivoting” toward Asia, mark your scorecard zero for four. There’s no doubt that when Kerry arrived at the State Department he brought with him some much-needed energy. That he is giving it his all — the department’s website reports that the secretary has already clocked over 682,000 miles of travel — is doubtless true as well. The problem is the absence of results. Remember when his signature initiative was going to be an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal? Sadly, that quixotic plan, too, has come to naught.

Auschwitz: Night Will Fall von Hitchcock über Holocaust und KZ - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Schreckliches Superlativ "German Concentration Camp Factual Survey", das war der nüchterne Titel des britischen Projektes, Alfred Hitchcock war als "beratender Regisseur" vorgesehen, der aus den Schreckensbildern einen Film formen sollte. Doch der Starregisseur war in Hollywood und kam erst Ende Juni 1945 in England an, knapp zwei Monate nach Kriegsende. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt waren zwei Dinge passiert: Es war klar, dass die Deutschen nicht gedemütigt werden sollten, sondern gebraucht wurden, als Bollwerk gegen die Sowjets - sie sollten nicht als die Monster gezeigt werden, die sie waren. Und, auch das macht der Film deutlich: Die Juden sollten nicht als die Opfer gezeigt werden, die sie waren, weil die Situation in Palästina für die Briten immer problematischer wurde, je mehr Juden in das Land drängten. Der Film, der zu grausam war für diese Welt, wurde nie gezeigt. Realpolitik hatte den surrealen Horror ersetzt.

Mikrofonpannen: Verbale Entgleisungen und Lästereien am Mikro - SPIEGEL ONLINE - einestages
Frustaustausch unter Politikern: "Ich kann Netanjahu nicht ausstehen, er ist ein Lügner", klagte Nicolas Sarkozy gegenüber Barack Obama auf dem G20-Gipfel im Jahr 2011. Doch der US-Präsident hatte wenig Verständnis: "Du bist ihn leid, aber ich habe jeden Tag mit ihm zu tun." Dank eines offenen Übersetzungskanals konnten die anwesenden Journalisten den Gedankenaustausch über den israelischen Politiker Benjamin Netanjahu fleißig mitschreiben.

Civilian Death Toll in Ukraine reaches 800, over 2,000 wounded. These deaths "have gone virtually unnoticed by the outside world." : worldnews
+ An attack that killed 10 people at a UN-run Gaza school was a "moral outrage and a criminal act", UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has said. It constituted a "gross violation of international law", Mr Ban said. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the US was appalled by the "disgraceful" shelling.
