Have you not come across Salted caramel as a flavour? Delicious - as is dark chocolate with seasalt - lots of it about. Although I prefer my coffee plain.
Absolutely agree Hosta and Fidget - hold onto your hats - it's going to be a rocky few years for the world ...
The thing about Trump and Putin is .......... Putin is a very clever chap and a good judge of character - he is also a pragmatist. Russia has had to deal with Islamic threats within its own borders and in its sphere of influence and they've had to go in hard ... that's what they're doing now ... they cannot allow instability on their southern borders and they will put Russian needs above all others. Russian leaders do not feel a responsibility for the rest of the world.
Putin understands that Trump is a vain and self-obsessed bully and he knows that he will be able to impress him - Trump as USA president standing in the vast and intimidating Red Square watching their military displays (which are hugely impressive) will suck up to Putin and become his puppet without even realising that's what's happening.
Basically, NATO and the West should have allied ourselves with Russia against the Mujahideen in the eighties, rather than arm them ... then we wouldn't be in this mess now.
