In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers ...

The world is on the brink of war, again. And
again. And, yes, yet again. And then it’s
not on the brink of war any more… but wait,
there’s more! Of course there’s more, there
always is. US aircraft carrier battle groups
are steaming toward North Korea… or not.
They are steaming about aimlessly, nowhere
near North Korea, but in a very threatening
manner. Then Trump and Kim Jong Un meet, get
on great, sign a piece of paper that means
nothing and part friends. Now the aircraft
carriers are steaming about far less
menacingly. Then Trump and Un meet again, to
sign some other meaningless piece of paper,
but then John Bolton shoots his mouth off
and the deal is off. But Trump and Un
continue to exchange love letters, so the
bromance isn’t dead. In any case, war
between the US and North Korea is not just
unwinnable but unthinkable: South Korea’s
capitol is within striking range of North
Korean artillery and all US military bases
in the region are within range of North
Korean rockets. War with North Korea is
definitely off. Executive summary: nothing
happens. So, what was that all about?
Now it’s about Venezuela. Its democratically elected leader is declared to be a usurper and a suitable replacement is found by the name of Random Guy-doh. American vassal states around the world are bullied into granting him diplomatic recognition as Venezuela’s president even though he’s just a random guy in an apartment in Caracas. Some trucks get torched on a bridge between Columbia and Venezuela. They were carrying humanitarian goods such as spools of wire. There is talk of military intervention, but it’s just talk. The Bank of England confiscates Venezuela’s gold, the US freezes Venezuela’s oil company’s bank accounts in the US and hands them off to a bunch of shady Venezuelans who steal it. That part makes sense; the rest of it? Meh! In any case, a US military incursion into Venezuela is not within the realm of possibility: Venezuela has Russian air defense systems which make it a no-fly zone for the US air force; also, fighting guerrilla action in Venezuelan selva is not something the US military is capable of. Executive summary: nothing happens, again.
