Macron lost his majority in parliament. Center-right parties pretty much all lost seats, the Left alliance and Le Pen party gained. Macron alliance plus the center-right alliance still has slight majority though.

 Zelenskyy giving a talk to my university in the middle of a war is kind of wild

A 42-year-old man has been arrested and charged with murder, attempted murder and terrorist acts after a shooting in the centre of Norway's capital, Oslo.

Two people were killed and 21 injured in the overnight attack on a busy nightlife district.

42 is quite old for the average radicalized mental ill islamist to suddenly commit a hate crime.

Ya certainly an outlier for Islamist terrorists in terms of age, but I don't think it has any meaning.  Just because more people become radicalized at a younger age and more likely to act on it at a younger age, doesn't mean it can't happen to older people.  Also just because a lot of the preventative talk is based around youth doesn't mean that it isn't valid, just that it is limited.

He was Iranian no? They've been threatening with 'consequences' because of the nuclear talks that stranded.
Turkey and Israel have been on high alert for weeks. Wouldn't put it past the IRGC to distribute some weapons among unstable but useful idiots.
Same for the GRU/FSB.

The reason I wrote my response as is is because I knew you were going to base some big conspiracy on a small outlier.  It's not to say it might not be possible, nor that it isn't probably a result of Iranian stochastic terrorism, but the simplest answer doesn't need to explain away the guys age or evoke hollywoodesque spy games.

The gas fields in the black sea would be my guess.

One of Russia's goals is to conquer the Azov and black sea coasts leaving Ukraine landlocked and no longer limiting the Russian Navy and merchant vessels to just the port of Sevastopol.



You could easily deploy mobile missile systems there.
With Mariupol already conquered the battle for Odessa will probably be the most important battle of the war.


The Russians continue their terror hitting a shopping mall far beyond the front lines.

Caught at the G7, Macron asking Biden to increase US oil production because according to him the Saudi's and UAE are maxed out already.
Biden's plan was to ask Saudi Arabia and UAE to produce more oil.

Unlike the United States Dollar, you can't just print more oil. You actually have to do work to get it out of the ground.

Turkey has dropped their opposition against Sweden and Finland joining NATO.
Erdogan gets everything he wanted. Sweden and Finland will extradite some 'terrorists', they will lift the arms embargo on Turkey and will share intelligence among many other things.
