    The UK snap general election, initiated by Prime Minister Theresa May to overcome divisions in the parliament and succeed in the negotiations with the European Union on Brexit, ended up with a so-called hung parliament, when no party holds an absolute majority.

    Deep Waters

    On Thursday, the United Kingdom held early parliamentary elections, which were called by the country's Prime Minister Theresa May to overcome "division in Westminster" ahead of the upcoming negotiations with Brussels.

    May expected to increase the number of her Conservative Party’s seats in the parliament in order to avoid additional problems during the talks. To be the ruling party, May's party needed to get at least 326 seats.

    However, no party received the absolute majority of seats in parliament and the election has resulted in a hung parliament.

      Sometimes They Come Back

      It seems that the Pentagon's control over US-manufactured military equipment borders on supernatural as the agency promised Turkey that all weapons supplied to YPG will be eventually returned back to the United States.

      Dress That Doesn't Impress

      The Pentagon appears to have a problem understanding the concept of spending one's money wisely, as the US military spent millions of taxpayer dollars on the wrong type of uniform for the Afghan security forces.
