You always hate the thing I’m doing at the time and tell me the thing I was doing before was better. This has been a constant of our relationship since early 2004.

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Belarusian, Russian and Serbian military forces will take part in joint military exercises in Belarus, the RIA news agency cited Belarus’ defence ministry as saying on Tuesday.

It said the Russian and Serbian forces would arrive in Belarus from Sept. 10 to 15, without elaborating.

This is wild.
Belarusian authorities scrambled a fighter jet and flagged what turned out to be a false bomb alert to force a Ryanair plane to land on Sunday and then detained an opposition-minded journalist who was on board, drawing condemnation from Europe and the United States.

In what was described by some EU leaders as a hijacking, a Soviet-era MiG-29 fighter jet escorted the Ryanair-operated passenger plane flying from Athens to Lithuania. The plane was suddenly diverted to Minsk, the capital of Belarus, where authorities detained journalist Roman Protasevich.

"In what was described by [people who know the meaning of the word 'hijacking'] as a hijacking..."

I wonder what the pushback will be, or if it'll be the usual "grave concerns". It's like something out of a spy movie though.

That and the Israeli arms deal (I know it's passed but I believe progressive Democrats are attempting to suspend it) are probably the first two really big FP tests for the Biden administration.

He's also said he was going to end US support for the Saudis in Yemen, but I don't think anything has come of that yet.
