Twitter: @morrisonista But you know, given the whole "white supremacists marched in Charlottesville on Saturday and one anti-racist protestor was killed" thing...not a great look.

Syrian Refugees Say They’re Torn About President Donald Trump After US Strikes

Syria's devastating civil war, now in its seventh year, has rendered more than half the country's population refugees. Thomas Coex / AFP / Getty Images ANTAKYA, Turkey — Syrian refugees who had been angered by the Trump administration’s attempts to ban them from the US found themselves suddenly torn in their feelings toward the US president in the wake of airstrikes against the Bashar al-Assad regime.

Now, with Trump hitting back overnight Thursday to punish Syria for the massacre, after years of pleas by Syrians for US intervention, and banging the drum about regime change, some have started to see him a different light — while still remaining wary. “As Syrians, we have mixed feelings today,” said Wasim Ghazi, a Syrian refugee who now lives in Spain. “Trump, who banned Syrians — and many people around t..

"But I realized that couldn't have been it, because it was evenly distributed over my whole ankle and foot." "I wasn't really thinking about being eaten." AAP Image / Jarrod Kanizay Sam walked home and washed the blood from his legs but they wouldn't stop bleeding – so his father, Jarrod, drove him to hospital.

More than 60 people were killed and scores others were injured when wildfires ripped through central Portugal, near Figueiró dos Vinhos and Castanheira de Pêra.
