Seeking to leverage his experience in foreign policy, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Wednesday ripped Donald Trump's withdrawal of U.S. military forces from Syria as the latest proof that the president is a "complete failure" who is gutting American credibility around the world. Biden used a 40-minute speech in Iowa to excoriate Trump for withdrawing American forces and leaving Syrian Kurds, key U.S. allies in the yearslong fight against the Islamic State group, open to attacks from Turkey.

Whatever westerners thought about images of Kim Jong Un trekking through mountain snows astride a white stallion, the subliminal message sent to North Koreans was to instill confidence that they have a man of strength and destiny holding the reins of power. The Internet was flooded with online jokes and memes after North Korea's state media released the photographs. "The main thing to keep in mind is that while we might think Kim looks goofy, he doesn't think that," Jeffrey Lewis, a North Korea expert at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies in California, said on Twitter.

HONG KONG/BEIJING (Reuters) - High-resolution satellite images show that the construction of China's first full-sized aircraft carrier is progressing steadily alongside expansive infrastructure work that analysts say suggests the ship will be the first of several large vessels produced at the site. The images of the Jiangnan shipyard outside Shanghai were taken last month and provided to Reuters by the non-partisan Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), building on satellite photos it obtained in April and September last year. Noting a series of pre-fabricated sections, bulkheads and other components stacked nearby, CSIS analysts say the hull should be finished within 12 months, after which it is likely to be moved to a newly created harbor and wharf before being fitted out.

The scam's victims include Chip Ganassi Racing and Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway.Late last year, the FBI raided DC Solar and arrested the company's founder and his wife, Jeff and Paulette Carpoff, for running a Ponzi scheme, and among the millions of dollars in assets seized from the couple were 149 vehicles. It's the largest single car collection that the U.S. Marshals Service has ever sold with vehicles ranging from plain Jane to over the top including hot rods, muscle cars, electric vehicles, sports cars, trucks, boats, a dirt bike and even a motor coach.It's a world-class car collection assembled by a world-class con artist, and all of them will be auctioned off on October 26.In terms of late-model cars up for grabs, there will be high-performance luxury vehicles such as a 2017 Bentley Continental GT V8 S, 2017 Cadillac CTS-V, 2014 Jaguar XKR-S and 2008 Maserati GranTurismo as well as more environmentally friendly cars like five 2018 Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrids and a pair of 2014 Tesla Model S electric sedans.If trucks and SUVs are more your style, there is a fleet of 12 Ram 2500 trucks, a Mercedes-Benz G500 and four AM General Humvees - from the early '90s before they were named the Hummer H1. The classic and vintage cars get even better ranging from pre-war cars like a 1930 Cord L-29 Brougham and 1932 Ford Roadster hotrod to legit muscle cars like a couple of '70 'Cudas, a gaggle of Fiat 500s, four generations of Camaros and a tubbed and caged El Camino.One of the coolest cars in this collection is a 1978 Pontiac Trans Am that was formerly owned by Burt Reynolds, and it comes with an expired Florida registration from 2017 that allegedly proves Reynolds' prior ownership. There are also several Eleanor Shelby GT500 replicas as well as a trio Plymouth Superbirds and a Dodge Charger Daytona. Interestingly, all four of these Winged Warriors have body tags that are installed with sheet metal screws.As such, buying cars from the collection of a con artist might raise some red flags, so do your homework before bidding.Pre-bidding for these cars started on October 11, and the U.S. Marshals Service will host the live auction event in Woodland, California on October 26.
