A season of gift-giving, merry carolers singing songs of good tidings, and more time spent with family can bring comfort even in times of war or a pandemic.

    Former Secretary of Defense Mark Esper laid blame for the coup in Afghanistan on both President Biden and his former boss, President Trump. Esper said that withdrawing from Afghanistan was the 'right policy objective' but the US should have compelled the Taliban to uphold its side of the peace agreement before leaving. 'Just because negotiations began under the Trump administration does not ignore the fact that President Biden owns the situation implementation of his withdrawal,' Esper told CNN on Tuesday.   Trump signed a peace agreement with the Taliban in February 2020, a deal which Esper called 'good enough.' In that deal, the US had agreed to withdraw forces and release some 5,000 Taliban prisoners if the militant group agreed not to allow Afghanistan to be used by terror groups to attack the US or its allies.   Esper said he implored Trump not to reduce the US troop presence further below 4,500 until the Taliban upheld its side of the deal. Last October, when Trump said he wanted to get troops out by Christmas, Esper wrote a formal letter recommending against...

    BAKU, Azerbaijan (AP) — Azerbaijan on Tuesday completed reclaiming territory ceded by Armenia under a Russia-brokered peace deal that ended six weeks of fierce fighting over Nagorno-Karabakh. Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev hailed the restoration of control over the areas as a historic achievement. “We all lived with one dream and now we fulfilled it," Aliyev said in an address to the nation. “We won a victory on the battlefield and on the political arena, and that victory opens a new era for our country. It will be an era of development, security and progress." Nagorno-Karabakh lies within Azerbaijan but has been under the control of ethnic Armenian forces backed by Armenia since a separatist war there ended in 1994.

The agreement saw the return of a significant part of...

    Jared Kushner, senior White House adviser, speaks during a news conference in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room at the White House in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Thursday, Aug. 13, 2020.Oliver Contreras | Sipa | Bloomberg via Getty Images A deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates to normalize diplomatic ties should be celebrated as a "historic step," despite the lack of support from Saudi Arabia, according to White House senior advisor and U.S. President Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner. Under the accord announced Thursday, which the U.S. helped to broker, Israel agreed to suspend plans to annex some areas of the occupied West Bank. It also shores up opposition against Iran, a regional power in the Middle East which the U.S., Israel and the United Arab Emirates all view as the main threat to stability. Saudi Arabia, a close U.S. ally and a hugely influential power when it comes to regional policy toward Israel, has remained eerily quiet on news of the accord. "I do think that we have other countries that are very interested in moving forward," Kushner...
