And with Mali no one even bothers to talk about freedom and democracy and people power, with the Arab Spring putting an end to all that rubbish. It’s a war against Islamist militants this time, pure and simple. Militants get inspiration from Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Syria get training and arms.

The Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia (Russian: Ру́сская Правосла́вная Це́рковь Заграни́цей, Russkaya Pravoslavnaya Tserkov’ Zagranitsey), also called the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad, ROCA, or ROCOR, is a semi-autonomous part of the Russian Orthodox Church.

ROCOR was formed as a jurisdiction of Eastern Orthodoxy as a response against the policy of Bolsheviks with respect to religion in the Soviet Union soon after the Russian Revolution of 1917, and separated from the Russian Church of the Moscow Patriarchate in 1927 after an imprisoned Patriarch Sergius I of Moscow pledged the Church’s qualified loyalty to the Bolshevik state.

The Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia officially signed the Act of Canonical Communion with the Moscow Patriarchate on May 17, 2007 restoring the canonical link between the churches. Critics of the reunification argue that the issue of KGB infiltration of the Moscow Patriarchate church hierarchy has not been addressed by the Russian Orthodox Church.

The Church has over 400 parishes worldwide, and an estimated membership of over 15,000 people. Within the ROCOR there are 13 hierarchs, and also monasteries and nunneries in the United States.

Here we go again: Britain is dragged into another war. But at least there’s no talk of freedom and democracy this time.

Game of Thrones

Sword and sorcery is a sub-genre of fantasy and historical fantasy, generally characterized by sword-wielding heroes engaged in exciting and violent conflicts. An element of romance is often present, as is an element of magic and the supernatural. Unlike works of high fantasy, the tales, though dramatic, focus mainly on personal battles rather than world-endangering matters. A film genre tangentially related to sword and sorcery, at least in name, is sword-and-sandal, though its subjects are generally oriented to biblical times and history instead of fantasy first used in 1961 by British author Michael Moorcock in the fanzine Amara a proposed epic fantasy.

American sword and sorcery author Fritz Leiber responded to Michael in a different  journal called Ancalagon in April 1961  creating sword-and-sorcery as a potential catchphrase for the field”. He expanded on this in the July 1961 issue of Amra, commenting: I feel more certain than ever that this field should be called the sword-and-sorcery story.The Warrior and the Sorceress is a 1984 Argentine-American fantasy action film directed by John C. Broderick and starring David Carradine and María Socas.

The Warrior and the Sorceress

The Warrior and the Sorceress (Photo credit: Lord_Henry)

It was written by Broderick (story and screenplay) and William Stout. The Warrior and the Sorceress is a version of the classic Kurosawa film Yojimbo. The film is noted chiefly for containing extensive nudity and violence, being one of the more extreme examples of the sword-and-sorcery genre. On a distant galaxy lies the desert planet of Ura, which has two sons. There, two rival warlords, Zeg and Bal Caz, constantly fight against each other in a battle over the village’s only wellspring. The mercenary warrior Kain emerges and announces that his skills are for hire to the highest bidder. A beautiful sorceress appears and is taken captive, changing Kain’s purpose to take the well for himself, and instead choosing to save the sorceress and the village people. Kain starts entangling the situation, and by taking advantage of the ongoing feud, he seeks to debilitate the rival warlords and defeat them.
