Show Notes

  • The conflict between Iran and Israel escalated this week, as Iran directly fired a powerful missile and Israel bombed some Iranian military installations.
  • Venezuela’s streets are full of protests as a challenger to President Nicolas Maduro declared his rule illegitimate and himself as interim president. Now nations worldwide are choosing which of Venezuela’s presidents to recognize.
  • France and Germany signed a new treaty this week that binds them closer together militarily and otherwise, and distances them from the United States.
  • China is redirecting its military resources from its army in order to dramatically strengthen its navy, air force, cyberwarfare and space warfare capabilities.
  • We also talk about a dispute that could see America reduce its military presence in South Korea, Hamas issuing a serious threat of violence against Israel, the Anglican Church being folded into the Catholic Church, and New York making abortion easier than ever.
