Terror in New York; Bin Laden Files; Trump-Russia Probe; Cricket in Pakistan

How is ISIS-inspired terror spreading in the West? What can be done to stop self-radicalization of lone wolves through social media? Was Trump's reaction to the NY terror report appropriate? Why is there such a difference in media coverage and leaders' reaction between terrorism incidents and frequent and more numerous shooting deaths in America? How does the domestic politics affect it?

What do the Bin Laden's Abbottabad files released by the CIA say about Al Qaeda leaders' ties with Iran and Pakistan? Is Iran really assisting Al Qaeda with arms, money and training of Al Qaeda operatives? Is there any evidence of Pakistan's help in hiding Bin Laden in Abbottabad? Why are the Afghan commanders in Loghar province talking about moving to Iran?

What are the charges filed by Independent Counsel Robert Mueller against Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos? Who's next to be charged in Trump Russia collusion probe? Jerrod Kushner? Is the special prosecutor working his way to the Trump inner circle? Will there be a repeat of the 1974 Saturday Night Massacre if Trump decides to fire Mueller?

How did Pakistan attract Sri Lanka team to play an international T20 match in Lahore? And at the same rise in rankings to the number 1 spot for T20 cricket? Is it a vote of increasing confidence in Pakistan?

Prince Charles: “I know there are so many complex issues, but how can there ever be an end to terrorism unless the causes are eliminated?” .....“Surely some US president has to have the courage to stand up and take on the Jewish lobby in the US? I must be naive, I suppose!”
