• After terrorist attacks this week in Brussels, Belgium, European leaders are saying the time has come to step up collective security within Europe—helping to unify European policing, defense and military.

• Reports show that Russia is increasing its militarization of the Crimean Peninsula—turning this Eastern European territory into an “unsinkable aircraft carrier.”

• China continues to increase its presence in the South China Sea, getting a stranglehold on strategic trade routes—and there’s also a Chinese company trying to buy the Chicago Stock Exchange.

• We’ll also talk about Iranian hackers taking over a dam in New York—Iranians making a statue of the American sailors it captured—al Qaeda getting a stronger foothold in Northern Africa—Americans’ addiction to painkillers—and what the British people of yesteryear would have thought of the people who are afraid to leave the European Union.
