Scott Ritter, former UN weapon inspector in Iraq, joins us to discuss China.

Robert Fantina, journalist and Palestine activist, joins us to discuss Iran. A Responsible Statecraft article discusses the reasons that negotiations between the Biden administration and Iran have ground to a halt. Trita Parsi's article, flawed though it may be, strikes home when it posits that "a more reliable and stable Plan A is needed that both addresses the unsustainability of an agreement that the United States can exist without penalty and that delinks the revival of the JCPOA from legitimate desires to broaden the deal."
Laith Marouf, broadcaster and journalist based in Beirut, joins us to discuss the Middle East. A US base involved in the illegal occupation of the Syrian oil fields was attacked by drones from an unknown source. International security observers expect the US to blame the attack on "Iranian linked" groups, as usual. Also, several Syrian soldiers were killed during a terrorist attack when explosives were placed on a military transport bus.
