  • Europe’s anger at America’s decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal is intensifying and deepening, in a way that could threaten the trans-Atlantic partnership.
  • Japan is the only major American ally not to receive exemptions from the Trump administration’s tariff decision. Now Japan is signaling that it may fight back.
  • A new leader in Iraq could draw the nation deeper into the Iranian orbit.
  • And America’s once-mighty merchant marine fleet is in the final phases of a slow-motion collapse.
  • We also discuss responses in the Middle East to violence on the Gaza border, Germany’s view of Italy’s plans for a new government, China’s second aircraft carrier, and a political scandal in the United States that may turn out to be bigger than Watergate.
