Power does not temper them - Kanishk Tharoor, Hindustan Times
It is a measure of both India’s growing international stature and the unconventional character of Yogi Adityanath that the new chief minister of Uttar Pradesh made headlines here in the United States.
Donald Trump gives CIA power to carry out its own drone strikes - Harriet Agerholm, Independent
The CIA can now kill potential terror suspects with drone strikes after being granted new powers by President Donald Trump, according to a new report. The new authority – said to have been granted shortly after Mr Trump’s inauguration – takes drone strikes out of the sole control of the military, sparking fears about accountability.
Donald Trumpís revised Muslim Ban is just another battle in a presidency that looks like war - Firstpost
Of Donald Trump’s executive orders to date, his so-called “Muslim Ban” has drawn the most attention and controversy. In addition to causing mass confusion and chaos, Trump’s order also brought tensions between the Executive and Judicial branches of government to a head. Facing public outcry and judicial resistance, Trump revoked his original order and replaced it with an updated version, published on 6 March.
Hitting the right notes - Pioneer
Call him what you may — aggressive, shrewd campaigner, a man high on rhetoric, tough as nails — but there’s apparently no stopping US President Donald Trump from going ahead, in his words, in making ‘America Great Again'. This was so starkly evident in his maiden speech to the US Congress at Capitol Hill.
Pakistan takes baby steps. More has to be done - Pioneer
It is tempting to whole-heartedly welcome the Pakistan Government's recent actions against terrorist Hafiz Saeed. But one has to hold oneself back because Islamabad has flattered to deceive on more than one occasion in the past. The Lashkar-e-Tayyeba (LeT) chief was placed under house arrest days ago and has now been listed under the Fourth Schedule of that country's anti-terror Act.

But it's a more than enough provocation and assertion of strength by militants against the US-led forces fighting the Taliban in the war-torn country since 2001.
America's new tirade against Islamic State - Hiranmay Karlekar, Pioneer
Undoubtedly, for the US President, defeating the Islamic State is the highest priority. But Donald Trump does not have an easy road ahead, which runs through complex situations, posing problems difficult to resolve.
Trust me, Iím the president - Economist
