In terms of the near future, are you leaning more towards optimistic or pessimistic?

Honestly neither. I have no idea how things are going to turn out. I could see it going either way, or being stuck in the middle and dragging out for a very long time too. I honestly have no idea. There are reasons to hope and reasons to despair. I guess it's all about what you focus on, to some degree. Things will work itself out eventually.

But as far as Syria, I think what will happen is Trump will drop some huge bomb on Syria, the Military-Industrial complex will be satisfied, he'll look like a tough guy, and then he'll cease action on Syria. Then Russia will get super pissed, but nothing too serious will happen because he'll have ceased action. Then we'll all forget about it in 2 months, when North Korea is saber-rattling again by firing practice ICBM shots.

It's all a show, by and large. "Politics is just the entertainment division of the military-industrial complex." - Frank Zappa

No problem. Frank Zappa was a genius.
