About radioyaran

We are two brothers, trying to collect the most interesting excerpts of new articles published mostly in well-known mainstream media. Some times we also pick text snippets from well-known blogs. In our oppinion most articles contain a lot of repetitive and not really relevant text or they are just too long. Our Aim is to reduce interesting articles to their most relevant parts and offer the link to the original article(s). Apart from the subject line the posts do not contain personal opinion, but consist of citations of the original articles. We are secular, against racism, sectarianism and interference in other countries internal conflicts, because it is seldom really well minded, and it mostly worsens the conflict. We focus on current politics but we will occasionally post articles that give a better picture of the overall context.
