Show Notes

  • The Islamic State claimed responsibility for a hostage situation in Paris that killed at least two people on Friday. It is these types of events that have many Europeans speaking out against Islam, including Germany’s new minister of the interior, who says Islam doesn’t belong to Germany.
  • China retaliated against Donald Trump’s tariffs by imposing some tariffs of its own, rocking international markets.
  • Now that Chinese President Xi Jinping has eliminated term limits, he is stepping up the campaign to absorb Taiwan into mainland China.
  • We’ll also talk about how close the Middle East came to nuclear war in 2007, how John Bolton may change America’s foreign policy, Europe seeking to extend its influence in Lebanon, Turkey scoring a victory in Syria, a massive energy deal between Russia and China, and Austin, Texas, being terrorized by a package bomber.
