    You don't even need to read any of it to know Trump stumbled into this like a drunkard.

    True.

    "Strongmen" when they know they are going down they tend to do these kinds of "fuck you" to the world.

    Oh, it seems that it gets even better.

    Syrian army enters Kurdish-held town of Manbij

    The Syrian army move on Manbij was made possible by a direct plea for help from Syrian Kurds in the area. The People's Protection Units (YPG), the main Kurdish militia in Syria, called on government troops on Friday to deploy in the north, to help them counter the threat of a Turkish offensive.

    The YPG, which Turkey regards as a terrorist group, had been left exposed by the US pledge to withdraw its own troops.

    "So we invite the Syrian government which we belong to... to send its armed forces to take over these positions and protect Manbij in the face of Turkish threats," the YPG statement said.

    The Kurds will simply make a deal with the government that actually wants to keep the country in one peace. What opens the obvious question of how exactly will Erdogan fight ISIS if his troops are "expected" down there and Russia offers support.

    Austria to implement digital tax for tech giants


    Austria has vowed to tax tech giants, following France's new levy on the so-called GAFA companies: Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon. The EU has been trying to implement a bloc-wide policy on the matter.

    USA and Israel Fail to Agree on Sale of F-16 Fighter Jets to Croatia


    This story shakes my local politics for months and the impression is almost as if US wants this deal to fail. In the case that Croatia isn't NATO country I would see the problem but this is pointless drama in my book. On the other hand people demand resignation of defense minister if this happens, what is also pointless drama. (since it wouldn't happen)


    But as you wish America, we can continue to use out MiGs.
