Over the next one thousand years, the world would see various Sheikhs, Sultans and Khans all vie for power in the culturally flourishing part o...

They killed forty eight men one night ago. They came in to the town, took out a police station, demobilized them and then proceeded to shoot at everything male in their path.

The idea of diversity is like any other idea because it has a good side and a bad side. In each country that has diverse people it could be a source of problems but it might also be a healthy thing.
