All news stories, opinion articles, analyses, and discussion related to how nations conduct their relations with one another.
Specifically, geopolitics is focused on the relationship between politics and territory. Through geopolitics we attempt to analyze and predict the actions and decisions of nations, or other forms of political power, by means of their geographical characteristics and location in the world.
In a broader sense, geopolitics studies the general relations between countries on a global scale. Here we analyse local events in terms of the bigger, global picture.

This is a community that should discuss American policies and actions that promote what the Pentagon calls the "long war". It should include articles that show the politics behind the Endless War, the spending involved and the toll in human suffering and lives.
