    It seems like Barack Obama has decided to follow the principle 'last one who leaves turns off the light' and ordered to impose new sanctions against Russia. But the Russian side took it with humor.

    beware of the lame duck

    For example, the Russian embassy in the UK expressed its reaction on new sanctions via Twitter.

    ​Western media immediately reacted on this tweet. The Washington Times decided that Russia was making fun of the recent diplomatic row between the two countries. Mashable did't want to believe that Russian diplomats responded to the conflict with a meme. The Independent wrote that the Russian response "was fast, and in some cases, rather amusing." Business Insider called it "a snide response."

      Sometimes They Come Back

      It seems that the Pentagon's control over US-manufactured military equipment borders on supernatural as the agency promised Turkey that all weapons supplied to YPG will be eventually returned back to the United States.

      Dress That Doesn't Impress

      The Pentagon appears to have a problem understanding the concept of spending one's money wisely, as the US military spent millions of taxpayer dollars on the wrong type of uniform for the Afghan security forces.
