Reports are emerging that Russia is preparing economic sanctions against the US. Among restrictions being considered are a ban on the export of titanium and rocket engines to the US and restrictions on imports of alcohol and tobacco from the US (archived).
Reports are emerging that Chinese customs agents are actively refusing US garbage exports entrance to the country (archived). With China buying Brasilero soy to the exclusion of US beans, enforcement of the ban on garbage imports leaves even less goods to justify US to China cargo service.
Hundreds of flights are canceled or delayed while other services are closed as German goverment workers agitate for a still greater piece of the Euro pie (archived).
The latest reports on the situation in Syria indicate the Arleigh Burke class destroyer USS Donald Cook1 is in Syrian waters where it is being intimately buzzed by Russian warplanes. With diplomatic channels between the US and Russia dramatically reduced following British aggitation, Pantsuit just might get their war if this dance continues. Make Green, Great Again!

The people of Hungary voted for the candidate who promised to continue denying EU efforts to fill Hungary with economic migrants from diverse cultural backgrounds. As is becoming increasingly common with popular election results, Pantsuit is refusing to yield even though the leadership of most Hungarian opposition parties has resigned in acknowledgment of their failure.
The Israelis bombed a Syrian airbase in their latest effort to escalate the conflict Pantsuits refuse to abandon. Meanwhile for similar "humanitarian reasons", nearly 40 corpses have been generated on the Israeli border with Gaza as the Israelis continue defending a flimsy fence instead of constructing a Trump spec wall.
In recent weeks since the Syrian War has started heating up, US President Donald Trump has begun stating his intent to remove the United States from that conflict in the very near future. However opposition linked "white helmets" were conveniently on hand in Douma to document a chemical weapons attack which hit concealed bomb shelters housing women and children. Assad's forces had nearly gained complete control of the region at the time of the attack. This leaves the question of who had a motive very open.
Connor McGregor, the failed millenial boxer who was beaten by a 41 year old retiree last year, attacked a bus at a media event for a martial arts competition this weekend. Two matches scheduled for the competition have been cancelled after combat athletes were injured by broken glass.
Intel has killed its Android and iOS "Intel Remote Keyboard" app used to manage embeded computers in their line of Internet of Shit products (archived). The move was prompted by the discovery of three vulnerabilities allowing keystroke injection and arbitrary code execution. Rather than patch these vulnerabilties and the others likely to be found, Intel simply killed the app leaving their customers to find other remote management solutions.
