I would like to welcome you to our new publication — edited and contributed by Velabuster and me. The goal of this publication is to provide a medium through which we can express our views and thoughts about the pressing issues in our changing world. I don’t promise to be politically correct or orthodox in my writing. I will write what I truly believe and substantiate my claims and thoughts with evidence and other supporting material that I bring forth. I personally have a keen interest on international politics, especially in Europe, Middle East, and the post-Soviet States. I also will discuss social issues in some of my future writing. While people will find me to be right-wing when it comes to social and economic issues, I do not let labels limit what I think and argue. In the end, it is important for one to have an open mind and debate is the ultimate platform for that. I hope you all enjoy our writing in this publication — and feel free to leave comments and suggestions.
