Typical war mongering Hillary supporter 

I'm no Hillary supporter (I've mentioned that on here too) and I'm certainly no war mongerer. When I say it's a good move, I don't mean I support more war, I mean it's a good political move for Trump. Shows he has a pair and is willing to do more than talk, and also helps distance himself from the Kremlin a bit more by attacking one of their allies. Also it irks me seeing so many people are saying how foolish and wrong it is yet if Obama did the same thing (which he did many times) he would get praised or it would be ignored.

tl:dr - I don't like war but I respect the fact that Trump has made a baller move

It's almost 100 years since the "war to end all wars" concluded. It did nothing of the sort of course. Dropping bombs may show you have balls, may be "good" politically, but be it done by Obama or Trump or Putin or anyone else it won't solve anything.

I forgave the first 'their' but not the second one. Get it right.

I think it's a very measured and smart approach. Russia and Syria were warned before hand so they could evacuate people and some equipment, but at the end of the day the airfield used in the chemical attack is disabled. The US have stated that it's a one off attack. It sends the message that chemical attacks won't be tolerated without escalating the situation too much and without getting the US involved any further for now.

It seems some Islamist has been arrested over the Dortmund bus attack.

Who'd have thought?

A 35% vote for a far-right candidate may not have won the Presidency, but it's a hell of a big vote in the overall scheme of things. Not the same thing of course, but the biggest vote in our 2016 election was 34.7% to the ALP.

Manchester bomber was a "soccer fan".

That explains his violence....

The point of the headline is to show that he was seemingly an everyday English person that cherished the same thing that other people in the country also love, but still decided to do what he did. 

Save your outage for something else.
