The Saker. Yves: “Way too much verbiage. But if the asserted central facts are indeed correct, this probably is significant: 1. Israel got more aggressive after US exited Iran deal. More strikes but not much damage. 2. Syria retaliated in a bigger way than usual and did very serious damage. Basically suggests Syria can do a much better job of intercepting attacks that Israel.”

Independent. Yves: “This is only the transition period. This ask was nixed before when it was only 3 months. Messes up EU budget cycle. And 6 months is not going to make any meaningful difference in UK preparedness. I’ve seen no evidence of anyone on the EU side wanting more time. Their big problem is no one can plan because no one knows whether it will be a crash out or a hard Brexit. I think this is Barnier getting out over his skis again. He’s done that two times before and had his ideas nixed. He may be doing this to try to look friendlier while the EU is having to tell the UK its Irish nonsense is a non-starter (which it has already told them but they refuse to hear).”

CBC. Interesting, but I reject formulations like “Trump Era,” because I think the continuities between Bush, Obama, and Trump (and further back) are far more important than the differences.
