Foreign policy is a literal minefield

Growing up, learning about geography and studying the world and the countries in it, we fail to really capture just how transient some parts of the world can really be.

I definitely had no idea just how in flux this area of the Middle East has been, since our maps don’t really update often enough to capture the new areas popping up, and even if they did, Google Maps isn’t going to send a push notification saying ‘New Territory Settled – Click to view’. It’s terrible and fascinating, all at the same time, considering the reasons for this particular set of borders.
