Essay from the year 2016 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: A-, , course: International Relations, State, and Strategy, language: English, abstract: Recent news surrounding the battles in Iraq and Syria give the impression that the Islamic State is losing many of their important gains and will eventually succumb. This, however, is not the time to withdraw the pressure from the Islamic State. They still have a vast arrange of ways of collecting money from a variety of financial sources. The international community has to keep the pressure not just on the battlefield but also on the banks and assets that the Islamic State has managed to get a hold of. It is well documented how the Islamic State was able to take and contain hold of significant amount of territories in Iraq and Syria. The failures of the Iraqi government and the uprising against the Syrian government helped lead to Islamic State victories on the battlefield. Before those battles even began, though, there was a significant amount of financial and material resources in the hands of the Islamic State. This paper identifies how the Islamic State gets its revenues, examines the main economic sanctions that have taken place against the terrorist organization, then goes through their individual sources of revenue and analyzes what has been done and what more the international community can do in order to stop the Islamic State from taking in such large amounts of money.
They love to fight and live to kill! Start with an insane sergeant with a genius for leadership and a lust for blood. Add a bank robber. A racketeer. A guy who goes berserk on the battlefield. A gun-happy Texan. A silent Apache. A movie stuntman who swings from trees. Put them all together and you have the killing machine known as… the Rat Bastards. 1. Language: English.

Nathaniel Garro, knight errant and agent of the Sigillite, returns from the battlefields of Calth to find a new mission already waiting for him - a ragged fleet of Space Marines from several Legions lingers at the edge of the Terran system. With the presence of World Eaters and Emperor´s Children causing concern among the loyalist defenders and drawing a grim parallel with his own frantic flight, Garro must look beneath the obvious if he is to determine friend from foe.... 1.

Excerpt from Circling the Globe: Letters From Foreign Lands With Biographical Sketch These random notes of foreign travel were published in the Auglaize Republican, and are now reprinted at the request of some of my traveling companions on a great part of the journey, Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Pomeroy and Mr. Chas. M. Stimson being with us as far as Venice, Italy, and Mrs. Agnes G. Chichester and daughter Catherine to Cairo and the Nile. With many others from Los Angeles and vicinity we sailed from San Francisco on the ´´Korea´´ on March 9th, 1909, not as a party, but with tickets from D. F. Robertson of the German-American Savings Bank, to whom we were indebted at the starting, and during the progress of our journey, for many thoughtful courtesies. Mrs. Brotherton and I had sailed from New York on the Steamship ´´Zeeland´´ of the Red Star Line, on May 16th, 1903, for Antwerp, Belgium, and had seen the magnificent Cathedral, one of the finest in Europe, with the great painting of Rubens. ´´Descent from the Cross,´´ and to Brussels and the battlefield of Waterloo and back to the Hague, Amsterdam, the Island of Marken in the Zuyder Zee, and then to Cologne, with its great Cathedral, and then up the Rhine to Mayence, Frankfort-on-the Main.

In 1913, before there is a rumor of war in Europe, Matthias Wrenn and Con Hatchel, lifelong friends from Ballyrannel in the Irish midlands, decide to see the world at the expense of the king of England and join the British army. A year later, while en route to India, their troop ship is recalled and they soon find themselves in the European slaughterhouse that was World War I. As stretcher bearers, the two men witness all too closely the horrors of the battlefield and the trenches, the savagery, and the unconscionable waste of human life on fields made liquid by ´´the blood and guts of boy soldiers” at the Somme, Ypres, and Passchendaele. Meanwhile, back home in Ireland, Con’s sister and Matthias’s lover, Kitty Hatchel, yearns for their safe return and reminds them of their carefree childhood on the banks of the local canal, as well as their hopes for the future.Brilliantly and movingly narrated by a chorus of voices from the community — Matt, Con, Kitty, and others — The Canal Bridge tells the story of how the young men take Ballyrannel to war with them, and how the war comes back home when hostilities end in Europe. The Ireland the friends left in 1913 no longer exists, for the political landscape has been transformed by the Rising against the British in 1916. It is now a land riven with sectarian tensions and bloodshed from which there is no escape. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paul Nugent.
