Survival News: Trump and Putin Discuss Possible Cease Fire in Syria

In their first conversation since the recent airstrikes in Syria, Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Donald Trump discussed a possible cease-fire agreement in the war-torn country of Syria. President Trump rocked the international community three weeks ago by authorizing a surprise airstrike on an airfield in Syria, after a horrific chemical attack took place in one of the rebel-held regions of the country. Syrian President Bashir Al-Assad was blamed for the attack, and so Washington decided to strike back. Many of Trump’s supporters and enemies were concerned that this would send a bad message to Russia, as Russia […]

U.S. Vice-President Mike Pence said today that denuclearization of the North Korean peninsula is still possible without conflict.

Survival News: Military Action in Syria and Strained Relations With Russia

You’ve probably heard by now that on Thursday night, President Trump ordered 59 cruise missiles to be launched on an airbase in Syria. In a press conference following the event, he explained that this was in retaliation a chemical attack that happened earlier this week in a northern, rebel-held region of Syria, which, despite denial by the Assad regime, was blamed on the Syrian military. Instantly, Trump’s largely enthusiastic base was split. He appeared to do a complete turnaround from the isolationist rhetoric of his campaign, and many of his most outspoken supporters openly criticized this move. The biggest concern […]

Survival News: Trump Tweets on Wiretapping

You have probably heard by now that over the weekend, President Trump tweeted that Obama had been wiretapping his campaign headquarters last year, right before the election in November. This caused quite a stir in the media, as you can imagine because of the accusation that a sitting president would wiretap a presidential hopeful are very grave indeed. Not to mention, not everyone was sure why Trump felt confident making such a bold statement when there doesn’t seem to be any indication of it. Remember Trump’s statement about Sweden? Well, in this case, it seems to be very similar. While […]

Survival News: What’s Really Happening in Sweden?

Riots erupted in a largely immigrant neighborhood of Stockholm, Sweden Monday night, resulting in fires, damage to private property, and looting. It is reported that the riots were in response to police clashes with suspected criminals in the area, and, mirroring the current riots in Paris and the riots we’ve had in the last few years here in the US, those involved in the upheaval seemed to target their violence and rage towards police officers. Rocks were thrown at officers responding to the riot, who in turn fired warning shots in an attempt to quell the chaos. Sweden has welcomed […]
