Hello all, Just wanted to hear a few recent opinions on current affairs as well as what you chaps think are the most pressing issues of the day. To put forward a few topics: - Department of Justice in America appointing a special prosecutor, Robert Mueller, to investigate Donald Trump's links to Russia. Personally, I can imagine his work will take months - by which point Trump would have engulfed himself in a different scandal altogether. - The US flouting of the Russian-established 'no fly' zones in Syria in air attacks on Assad's forces. The Americans have said for a long time that they wouldn't work with the Assad regime - having bombed Assad's airbases recently after the chemical attack. - The crisis in Yemen - with the UK selling arms to Saudi Arabia (who have been hitting targets all across Houthi-held Yemen from hospitals to funerals,) we could become liable for war crimes by association. Iran is propping up the Houthis in a proxy war against their rivals, Saudi Arabia. Just a starting point. What are the most pressing major issues that exist today in your opinions?
