Show Notes

  • A tragic terrorist strike shows that the Islamic State terrorist group is not defeated and that its methods in Syria and beyond may be shifting to something more sinister.
  • Britain is leaving the European Union, but the process has been demoralizing and chaotic. This week, the chaos reached a new level.
  • China’s military power is rapidly rising and even surpassing that of the United States in some key areas.
  • Meanwhile, in the U.S., the longest government shutdown in the nation’s history lumbers on with no apparent end in sight.
  • This episode also covers the specifics of a plan to bring peace to the Israel-Palestine conflict, Russia’s ongoing aggression on Ukraine, the leftward drift of the U.S., and a meeting in Switzerland that received very little press coverage but might have been significant.
