A brief podcast by Alternative Right chief editor Colin Liddell, reporting on the site and events in the news. This time the focus is on Trump's decision to attack Syria and reopen the question of regime change.

In the past a defeat for Assad would have meant a victory for ISIS or some other radical Muslim group, but with the rise of the Syrian Democratic Forces, an alliance built on the leftist Kurdish militias of the North and some possibly "moderate" Arabs, the USA has managed to build up a more "acceptable" alternative to Assad.

Is this a serious attempt to remove Assad or part of some wider "Art of the Deal" game that Trump is playing against Putin, with Syria as a bargaining chip? Also were the Alt-Right being just a touch naive by expecting Trump to bow out of global geopolitics altogether?
