  • After six decades of rule by Castro, Cuba swore in a new president this week. Could this change life for the people of this strategic island nation off America’s southern coast?
  • Turkey’s strongman leader has called snap elections in an effort to boost his considerable power even further by creating a single-party state and an executive presidency.
  • After France, the U.S. and the United Kingdom united in striking Syria last week, Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg expressed disappointment that Germany didn’t participate.
  • Libya could experience further disarray as reports of serious illness are issued by the head of the Libyan National Army. Could this create an opening for greater Iranian influence?
  • We’ll also talk about Chinese banks propping up Kim Jong-un by laundering North Korean cash, escalation in the trade war between China and the United States, possible large-scale protests in the U.S., and an IMPRESSIVE NEW TELESCOPE that could expand our understanding of the universe.
