2018 With inputs from agencies She said the government had failed to upgrade the syllabus and was unnecessarily trying to change it, While Mulayam was perceived to be a leader having appeal all across the state from Ghaziabad (western Uttar Pradesh) to Ghazipur (eastern Uttar Pradesh) Akhilesh has not grown in political stature despite his five-year stint as chief minister The running family feud within the Yadav clan has substantially squandered the SP’s political capital Similarly scandals during Mayawati’s stints as chief minister have alienated a large section of the BSP’s Dalit support base which was assiduously built by Kanshi Ram On the face of it the possibility of Akhilesh-Mayawati combination seems quite distant to take on a resurgent BJP which has expanded its base among non-Yadav OBCs and non-Jatav Dalits As compared the SP and the BSP the BJP efforts at social engineering backed by robust organisational structure is guided more by pragmatism than “irrational exuberance” of Kalyan Singh era As it appears today much will depend on the outcome of by-elections in Gorakhpur and Phulpur If the social bases of the SP-BSP indicate a sign of seamless merger against the Hindutva forces it may encourage Akhilesh and Mayawati to undertake a new political experiment in a manner as Nitish Kumar and Lalu Prasad Yadav did in Bihar Significantly the alliance in Bihar between the JD(U) and the RJD happened only after the combination defeated the BJP in a series of by-elections before 2015 Hence the by-elections in two Lok Sabha seats could be precursor to a new political experiment in the offing in Uttar Pradesh Given the temperamental nature of Mayawati and cavalier political conduct of Akhilesh it appears next to impossible if the social coalition will take off the ground Will Mayawati play second fiddle to Akhilesh It is highly unlikely that the BSP chief would let Akhilesh take primacy in the state’s politics Of course given the history of hostility between both the camps it appears quite difficult to forge a coalition of mutually acrimonious social groups and channelise them into a anti-BJP political platform But politics often defy predictable course And there is little doubt if the by-elections outcome pave the way for a coalition it will indeed pose a formidable challenge to the rise of the BJP in Uttar Pradesh A car salesman

Despite the BJP’s aggressive Hindutva campaign after demolition of the Babri mosque, the Ancient Athenian historian Thucydides is proving surprisingly relevant.C. which pitted the Melians (who believed that right is on their side and some higher power will help them prevail in their just fight for political independence) against a stronger Athenian military the representatives of which argued that Melos should just surrender rather than try to fight It has become a textbook study of the tug-of-war between idealism and realism in military and political decision-making “In the History Thucydides shows that power if it is unrestrained by moderation and a sense of justice brings about the uncontrolled desire for more power” according to the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy “There are no logical limits to the size of an empire Drunk with the prospect of glory and gain after conquering Melos the Athenians engage in a war against Sicily They pay no attention to the Melian argument that considerations of justice are useful to all in the longer run… And as the Athenians overestimate their strength and in the end lose the war their self-interested logic proves to be very shortsighted indeed” National security adviser HR McMaster who is one of the Trump administration’s most notable Thucydides buffs summed up the book’s point even more simply in 2013: “War is human People fight today for the same fundamental reasons the Greek historian Thucydides identified nearly 2500 years ago: fear honor and interest” Write to Olivia B Waxman at [email protected] Leon Panetta served as the director of the Central Intelligence Agency from 2009 to 2011 and as secretary of defense from 2011 to 2013 Through the fall of 2011 the main question facing the American military in Iraq was what our role would be now that combat operations were over When President Obama announced the end of our combat mission in August 2010 he acknowledged that we would maintain troops for a while Now that the deadline was upon us however it was clear to meand many othersthat withdrawing all our forces would endanger the fragile stability then barely holding Iraq together Privately the various leadership factions in Iraq all confided that they wanted some US forces to remain as a bulwark against sectarian violence But none was willing to take that position publicly and Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki concluded that any Status of Forces Agreement which would give legal protection to those forces would have to be submitted to the Iraqi parliament for approval That made reaching agreement very difficult given the internal politics of Iraq but representatives of the Defense and State departments with scrutiny from the White House tried to reach a deal We had leverage We could for instance have threatened to withdraw reconstruction aid to Iraq if al-Maliki would not support some sort of continued US military presence My fear as I voiced to the President and others was that if the country split apart or slid back into the violence that wed seen in the years immediately following the US invasion it could become a new haven for terrorists to plot attacks against the US Iraqs stability was not only in Iraqs interest but also in ours I privately and publicly advocated for a residual force that could provide training and security for Iraqs military Under Secretary of Defense Michèle Flournoy did her best to press that position which reflected not just my views but also those of the military commanders in the region and the Joint Chiefs But the Presidents team at the White House pushed back and the differences occasionally became heated Flournoy argued our case and those on our side viewed the White House as so eager to rid itself of Iraq that it was willing to withdraw rather than lock in arrangements that would preserve our influence and interests We debated with al-Maliki even as we debated among ourselves with time running out The clock wound down in December and Deputy Secretary of Defense Ash Carter continued to argue our case extending the deadline for the Iraqis to act hoping that we might pull out a last-minute agreement and recognizing that once our forces left it would be essentially impossible for them to turn around and return To my frustration the White House coordinated the negotiations but never really led them Officials there seemed content to endorse an agreement if State and Defense could reach one but without the Presidents active advocacy al-Maliki was allowed to slip away The deal never materialized To this day I believe that a small US troop presence in Iraq could have effectively advised the Iraqi military on how to deal with al-Qaedas resurgence and the sectarian violence that has engulfed the country Over the following two and a half years the situation in Iraq slowly deteriorated Al-Maliki was responsible as he exacerbated the deep sectarian issues polarizing his country Meanwhile with the conflict in Syria raging an al-Qaeda offshootISIS or the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syriagained strength Using Syria as its base it began to move into Iraq in 2014 grabbing power in towns and villages across Iraqs north including Mosul and Tall Afar These were strategically important cities that US forces had fought and died to secure The news from Iraq bothered me to no end In my view the ISIS offensive in 2014 greatly increases the risk that Iraq will become al-Qaedas next safe haven That is exactly what it had in Afghanistan pre-9/11 After all we have done to decimate al-Qaedas

expected Indiewires Sam Adams writes that Miller "brings an infectious energy to the proceedings" and Mashables Sam Haysom noted his "upbeat jokey energy" In short: lots of energy is to be expected from the Flash which is fitting considering that his superpower trades in kinetic energy The basic plot revolves around Batman and Wonder Woman uniting a team of superheroes to fight Steppenwolf The first half of the movie sees Batman as the captain of the most powerful dodgeball team ever assembled; the one scene Snyder showed the reporters depicts Bruce Wayne recruiting Barry Allen aka The Flash with the latter initially attempting to conceal his identity (he says his flashy costume is for competitive ice dancing) before enthusiastically accepting Waynes offer The superheroes are joining forces to protect the planet from villain Steppenwolf and an army of Parademons who plan to invade Earth in short order Though Snyder was 31 days into filming at the time of the set visit it
