It's 11 a.m. on 10/26. Yesterday Trump decided to leave troops in Syria at the urging of generals: https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/us ... story.html

This morning, Putin (via Reuters) says leaving US troops in Syria is illegal: https://mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/idUSKBN1X507V

I predict Trump wil listen to his handler, flip flop again and announce pulling troops out of Syria

Not exactly. From what I can tell, we're waiting for the president to change his mind an odd number of times.

FWIW I know some green voters who voted green on the grounds that hdawg was going to win so no need to sully themselves with a vote for her. One I know voted early, and got caught by the Comey letter. Her SO did the same for Johnson.

They’d both intended to vote for hdawg if they thought it were necessary. Of course CO went for hdawg anyway.

Hillary never said that the Russians were grooming Gabbard for a 3rd party run, she said the Republicans were. Which turned out to be true. Though not sure how a candidate that can barely break 2% in. D primary will have an effect on the general. Though considering her fan base is largely thirsty Republican men, maybe she will.

Trump could pick her as a running mate.

Who is eating what exactly? Because I can't find any mention of Trump reversing the policy in that WaPo story to leave troops in Syria to protect the precious oil fields. Kobani is on the northwest border of Syria and the oil/gas fields are in the central and northeast regions.

Oh look, Russia (and China) are buying up our farms that Trump's policies sent into bankruptcy. It's almost as if that were one of the schemes all along: https://www.motherjones.com/food/2017/0 ... -us-farms/

Dude, you pick the worst examples. Putin wants the US security establishment run by an idiot who will foot-drag on efforts to push back on Russia. He doesn't have a detailed, grand plan, just a general (and correct) intuition that having his biggest adversary run by its biggest idiot will work out better for him than most of the alternatives. Elaborate plans to seize our food supplies are not where the Russian efforts are at. If some distressed assets get bought after an idiot amplifies their distress, those are entirely third-order (and hence poorly predictable) effects. The first-order effects (and goals) are to just have an idiot managing (or not managing) the security establishment.

That article doesn't even mention Russian buyers, Russia, or anything Russian. And I thought the supposed Grand Plan was Russia swooping in to sell to China, so how would Chinese companies buying American pig farms fit into that?

Furrin' doesn't fucking mean Russian, not unless you think Canada, the Netherlands, and Italy are Russian fronts...

I love it when foreign governments or potentates start buying up U.S. real estate. They always end up having paid too much, in the case of both Russia and China it makes us some fraction of 1% that much less likely to be bombed by them and it isn't as though they can take the land back with them. (Also, I have no sympathy for bankrupt farmers: live by subsidies and tariffs, die by subsidies and tariffs.)

Yup. Remember the Saudis in the 70's and the Japanese in the 80's. So much panic, and then poof.

If foreigners are the ones working on the farms, shouldn't they also be the ones owning them?
