US forces have begun patrolling part of the Turkey-Syria border after Turkish airstrikes in the area killed fighters from 2 Iraqi Kurdish groups, The People’s Protection Units (YPG) and the Peshmerga. The Turkish government considers these groups terrorists.

Ankara denies deliberately targeting them. US troops are trying to stop the outbreak of violence between two of their closest allies in the region from escalating.

When asked for a comment about the fragile state of affairs among allies, no one from the regime of popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп was available because they were all getting meatloaf at an undisclosed location.

U.S. intelligence forces are alarmed by increased build up of Russian forces in the Arctic, including near the border of Finland in the Murmansk region. A former Soviet base in the area was refurbished and reopend in 2015.

A spokesperson for the regime of popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп said there is great concern about the build-up in the White House. Speaking on condition of anonymity, the spokesperson said, “Трамп is really worried that Putin wants him to move up north. I mean, the guy likes his ice-cream … look at him … but he’s not really THAT into cold weather, y’know?”

USA Today columnist Jill Lawrence published a piece today describing popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп as a nightmare negotiating partner. She went on at length about how mercurial Трамп is, describing his reversals on NAFTA, medicaid policy and more. Lawrence pointed out that Трамп’s lack of knowledge and experience is hurting the ability to make even basic political deals and compromise in Washington, D.C., effectively paralyzing the government on matters of substance.

Meanwhile, CNN ran a cat video!

Yes, USA Today, the free newspaper you get at the hotel that often makes more sense than the New York Times, lately.
