UK:

Home Secretary Amber Rudd highlighted the link between drug usage (particularly by young people) and rising violent crime on Monday, particularly bringing light to the ‘devastating impact’ crack-cocaine has on all people in society.

Hype surrounding the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime against citizens in Douma has risen greatly this week, leading to a combined response in the early hours on Saturday morning.

UKIP have confirmed that Gerard Batten has officially taken over as full-time leader of the party.

US:

On Saturday morning, the US led airstrikes on military targets in Syria. Both the Kremlin and the Pentagon say there were no civilian casualties.

After the strikes, President Trump tweeted ‘Mission Accomplished’ as Syrian President Assad’s capabilities of using chemical weapons were announced to have been greatly diminished.

Europe:

France also took part in the airstrikes against Syria (along with the US and the UK) which were set to diminish the Syrian regime’s capacity to use chemical weapons.

World:

North Korea is open to having talks regarding denuclearization, according to a US official.

Tensions between Russia and the US have risen this week over the Syrian issue, as President Donald Trump accused Putin of being a partner ‘with a gas killing animal who kills his people and enjoys it.’

The Fultum Post contributors have also written on central banking, Facebook and the seventh amendment of the US Constitution.
