    I don't think it makes economic sense yet, or will for quite some time. In any case if it were private then the market would decide and it wouldn't matter who was right.

    In October Mr Trump, who scorns the multinational agreement to freeze Iran’s nuclear weapons programme as “the worst deal ever”, disavowed but did not formally withdraw from the pact. That gave Congress 60 days to reintroduce sanctions that were suspended by the deal: a deadline expiring this week. Mr Trump also urged lawmakers to craft new measures to halt Iran’s ballistic-missile development and support for Middle Eastern terrorism. European allies noted Iran’s technical compliance with the deal and warned America it would walk out alone. The buck will now pass back to Mr Trump, whose next chance to kill the agreement falls in January. More at: https://espresso.economist.com/8808eda0dd3dec4e4df50499f2fc75e8

    On the home front, President Putin is delivering on the promise that he made to his countrymen to win their War on Terror, having done so in only a third of his term (~2 years) and without dragging it on indefinitely like the US has done for over 8 times as long. Neither he nor his voters want to see Russia embroiled in what they always fear could become an Afghan-like quagmire by continuing military operations during what they believe to now be a solely “civil war” context. In addition, downscaling Russia’s involvement in Syria could allow the federal government to redirect hundreds of millions of dollars to domestic projects during President Putin’s expected fourth term, which boosts his populist credentials during this election season. The other reason behind why Russia will probably focus mostly on diplomatic initiatives at this time is because of the role that this intricate process can play in promoting Moscow’s 21st-century “balancing” act in becoming the supreme stabilizing force in the Eurasian supercontinent. By withdrawing most of Russia’s Aerospace Forces from Syria and thereby creating the conditions whereby President Assad is prompted into making “political compromises” as a result, Russia expects to enhance its strategic relations with Turkey, the Kurds, Israel, and Saudi Arabia, all with an eye on furthering the prospects of the emerging Multipolar World Order in this pivotal location at the tri-continental crossroads of Afro-Eurasia. Furthermore, by withdrawing right after accusing the US of provocative in-air maneuvers over Syria, Russia is extending an “olive branch” of “goodwill” to its Great Power rival and signaling that it’s eager as always to normalize relations if Washington is ready to reciprocate. The much-sought-after and so-called “New Détente” could finally make progress if Russia and the US reach a “gentlemen’s agreement” with one another over the fate of the Syrian Kurdish “federalists”, as appears to already somewhat be the case with both of them encouraging their on-the-ground partners of the SAA and SDF respectively to refrain from crossing the Euphrates River border between them. Bearing all of the above in mind, the implications of Russia’s announced military withdrawal from Syria are much larger than simply signifying Daesh’s defeat, but point to a thought-out and far-reaching plan to prompt President Assad into making “political concessions” to the “opposition” as a means of enhancing Russia’s overall “balancing” role in the Mideast, all for the “greater good” of multipolarity. While there’s hope that this process could also yield a breakthrough in relations with the US, such expectations should understandably be tempered by the reality of the “deep state’s” War on Trump, though the prospects of “constructive” US-Russian interaction via the Syrian Kurds – particularly in the event that they succeed in “institutionalizing” their self-declared “federation” in northeastern Syria – shouldn’t be overlooked.

    Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore weighed in on the terror attack in Manhattan on Monday, vowing to back President Trump’s tough stance against Islamic terrorists if elected. “As we get news this morning of yet another radical Islamic terrorist attack, I am grateful that it appears no one was critically injured, and, as always, I am thankful for the quick action of law enforcement who have the suspect in custody,” Moore wrote on Twitter, hoping to generate some positive press for himself by seizing on the bombing. “This incident underscores the continued threats our nation faces from those who want nothing more than to destroy the freedoms we enjoy. I am committed to implementing the president’s travel ban, putting an end to sanctuary cities, building the wall and making America safer,” he continued.

    Gov. Charlie Baker might not quite be writing “Doug Jones for U.S. Senate” checks like some of his fellow Republicans. But the Massachusetts governor strongly suggested Monday that he is backing the Alabama Democrat in Tuesday’s election against Republican Roy Moore — albeit in a somewhat tortured exchange. “I’m certainly not supporting Roy Moore,” Baker said at a public event Monday afternoon. “I think the only other candidate on the ballot is Doug Jones.” The governor was then asked by a reporter if that meant he was supporting Jones. “I think Doug Jones – I certainly don’t want to see Roy Moore win – that means, obviously, that I would be supporting the alternative,” he said.
