The Refugee Crisis: What Europe Can Learn From the Past | Stratfor

Standard

Forecast

  • In Europe, the process of integrating foreigners will remain problematic, especially because migrant workers tend to have fewer job opportunities than their native peers.

To the extent that Hitler had a home, this was it, and it was the place where Hitler met with many notables, particularly before the war began. Continue reading

U drugom ćemo čestitati rođendan Putinu, zahvaliti mu se za uslugu što je zbrinuo Slobodanovu Mirjanu, potom ćemo razmisliti da li je vreme za izbore, tojest videti da li mu se hoće ili neće.

Istoriju pred sud!
Odluka je pala:
Premestite nekud
Nedić đenerala!
Da ne bude kvisling
Kao za života,
Nacistički libling
Nek’ je patriota!
Da više ne slovi
Hitleru za slugu,
Dajte imidž novi,
Dimenziju drugu!
Nek’ ne radi sve što
Htede okupator,
Prepravite vešto
Da je reformator!
