Quite frankly I don't think Trump gives half a shit about Syria so long as he gets something, or believes he'll get something, out of this conflict. He's already talked about meeting with Putin to lower tensions. Who knows. I think a conflict with China is far more worrying and likely than one with Russia.

Its settled, im getting fit and joining the army

Hope you die then you stupid piece of shit

Maybe. Really, the big takeaway of these shakeups is that Trump wants to go back to the "good old days" of the first months in the White House where everyone sucked his dick and everything was in chaos. Appointing Bolton reflects this desire. As a Fox News personality, he'll coddle Trump's need for constant aggressive action while fellating him constantly. If that means bumbling into a massive war, so be it. Baby needs his ego stroked.

The latest rumors suggest Trump is going to fire Kelly in the coming weeks and not name a replacement, having everyone just go straight to him. The spineless GOP better brace themselves for the dumpster fire raging anew.

Can someone give me some context?

Well at least Bolton is a materialist who understand reality for what it is.

The French railway service is a national property, and Macron wants to privatize it even though we all know privatizing the railway does not work (see the UK).
Moreover, French railway workers are mostly commies, so they are quit active in protests.
They were 400000 people in the streets last Thursday against privatizing the railway, against the university reforms, and so on.

Looks like the French are finally amping up the protests. Last year's outings were absolutely pathetic.

This isn't what I had in mind when I wished com a YT competitor.
