    Our last episode of the year goes over five of the most important news stories to happen in 2015.

    For starters, we begin by Latin America’s sudden right-wing turn, where the elections in Argentina and Venezuela resulted in the opposition taking the Presidency and Parliament, respectively. After that, we move along to discussing why China is building its first-ever foreign military base in Djibouti, a tiny country located in the Horn of Africa.

    Following that, we remind everyone of the US’ aggressive maneuvers in the South China Sea and how it’s spent the past year constructing a “Chinese Containment Coalition”.

    Our runner-up for the year is the manufactured “refugee” crisis and how the real problems for Europe are only just beginning. Finally, to top off the year, we talk about Russia’s anti-terrorist intervention in Syria and how it dealt an equally strong hit against both terrorists and the unipolar world.
