Maybe a bit of good news, but...

"Khamene'i never liked the JCPOA and will make demands that Biden probably will not accept."
This is good news. Though Biden will probably find other ways to make life easier and more lucrative for the mullahs. Maybe he'll finally send, no strings attached, that check for 200 million. What a surprise when they grab some U.S. sailors and photograph them on their knees with their hands behind their backs.

"Yes, he has indicated he will be tougher (on Erdogan)."
Another piece of good news. But its implications for NATO, Greece, Syria, Libya, etc. are all way beyond Biden's thinking power. Policy will lie in the hands of unelected bureaucrats like the cadre of geniuses who thought invading Iraq and attacking Libya were good ideas. They took turns whining at Trump's impeachment, incredulous that the elected President of the United States made policy decisions that disobeyed their instructions. They can relax now. They're back in the driver's seat.

Meanwhile NATO members are thrilled they can go back to not paying their bills (who could blame them) and we'll go back to not caring.
