Mohsen Fakhrizadeh died of injuries sustained in an attack that occurred in Absard outside of Tehran earlier today. Multiple assailants and at least one explosion were involved. Per Iran's Ministry of Defense, Fakhrizadeh was martyred in a "terrorist assault" and had been serving as head of their Organization of Defensive Innovation and Research. Retaliation by Iran against terrorist targets is probable and has been suggested by Iranian officials. In January of this year after the assassination of Iranian Quds force commander Qassem Soleimani, Iran demonstrated the capability of striking US targets with precision and left the US without viable avenues for any response other than acquiescence to the US's own impotence in the region.
Today former football star Diego Maradona died at the age of 60 after suffering years of generally bad health. Maradona's would be successor, Lionel Messi, never had the success playing for Argentina's national team which could have established actual status as a successor though... comparable successes. Like its departed icon Maradona, Argentina suffers grave health issues as well. Unlike his homeland, Maradona's heart can rest having achieved asystole, the most stable rhythm.
The United States has quit the cold war era "Open Skies" treaty which allowed for surveillance flights over the potential combatants with the aim of lowering the chances that tensions break into actual combat.

After gutting the economy of the British isles, Airstip One's Prime Minister Boris Johnson has begun doubling down on the unforced errors speeding the ruin with further totalitarian orders to autoincarcerate while teasing future plans to "build back poorer" from the self inflicted crisis. Among his solutions to deepen the crisis is an adoption of the "Green" agenda exemplified in a ban on sales of new petrol and diesel motor vehicles after 2030.

US Reducing Iraq And Afghanistan Occupying Troops, Allegedly Floating Plans To Strike Iranian Nuclear SitesNovember 17th, 2020 by Aaron Rogier
Following hurried changes at the top of the USG's Pentagon, the Trump administration is planning to reduce the number of US troops in Afghanistan to 2500, a reduction of 2000 while taking a further 500 troops out of Iraq. Back in February the Trump Administration signed a sort of surrender to the Taliban.
Meanwhile rumors leaked out of the US DOD concerning possible strikes on Iranian nuclear sites by the US have Iran threatening a crushing retaliation should the US strike. In January Iran launched unanswered retaliatory strikes against US troops in Iraq following the assassination of one of their generals en route to a diplomatic meeting at the invitation of the Iraqi government.
Several sightings of Physalia physalis have been reported on the coast of Rocha department. Known in English as Portuguese Man 'O War or locally as Fragata Portuguesas, these nuisance invertebrates are an occasional, transient hazard.
Fifteen countries in the Asia-Pacific region agreed to a multilateral trade deal. Signatories include 30% of the world's gross domestic product, based on a figure for worldwide gross domestic product that has yet to catch up to this year's economic destruction which continues. The US was excluded from the pact as they favored pushing a different "Trans Pacific Partnership" which includes terms the US is increasingly outside of a position to request. This follows Monday's armistice between Armenia and Azerbaijan which was supported by Russia without any US involvement either.
India finds themselves outside the pact after participating in most of the negotiations due to ongoing tensions with China. Australia submitted to the new pact despite their own open disputes with China.
USSA: Million MAGA March As Hundreds Of Thousands Of Supporters Of Incumbent President Flood DC Opposed To Ongoing Bureacratic CoupNovember 14th, 2020 by Aaron Rogier
Supporters of incumbent US President Donald Trump flooded the streets of Washington DC today in a protest against the ongoing bureaucratic coup attempting to undo the 2016 election. Aerial shots of crowds far larger than the mere tens of thousands that attended Trump campaign rallies suggests an attendance of hundreds of thousands, if not well over a million persons today. Several Trump supporters were attacked by militants.
Today President Luis Lacalle Pou flew an A37-B Dragonfly attack aircraft from Carrasco International Airport to Rocha with a brief stop his plane's home base in the department of Durazno. Flying at the invitation of the Fuerza Aérea del Uruguay the President wore the Presidential flight suit complete with embroidered patch.
With numerous swing states presenting dubious vote counts and mainstream media sources trying to force the impression of a definitive win for the elderly challenger Joe Biden, a manual recount of votes in Georgia has been ordered. This joins a Friday order by US Supreme Court Justice Alito to have a certain questionable species of ballot in Pennsylvania segregated to allow for targeted remedies putting the disposition of Pennsylvania's 20 electors up in the air. Wisconsin and Michigan's electors may be brought back into play as the dispute plays out. Incumbent President Donald Trump has further purged Defense Secretary Mark Esper and other personnel at the USG.DOD in a move that is likely too small and too late to have a substantial impact on entrenched bureaucratic resistance to his further Presidency.
So long as Trump does not concede neither the last threads of US mainstream media respectability nor faith in the possibility of faith in the US electoral system are unlikely to survive to December 14th no matter what happens in the interim. Should Joe Biden take office January 20th, 2021, further hallucinated crises aimed to chase unifying effect 9/11 had in the aftermath of Bush v. Gore being contentiously decided on December 12th, 2000 can be expected.
