  • Turkey’s president visited the Vatican. He and the pope had an extended conversation, and a notable item on the agenda was the status of Jerusalem.
  • New photos show that China’s militarization of the South China Sea is extensive and even more dramatic than previously realized.
  • Russia installed some nuclear-capable missiles on the border of Lithuania, and says that NATO and Europe have nothing to be concerned about.
  • We’ll also talk about the rough week for global economic markets, a crisis brewing in the Red Sea, Israel having some new warships built, and what recently released memos in Washington tell us about the perilous state of America’s government.
