    Our show starts off with some analytical commentary on Al Qaeda’s latest terrorist attack in Africa, and what it’s trying to gain by attacking the Ivory Coast.

    Following that, we talk about Erdogan’s latest power trip in wanting to broaden the definition of “terrorist” to include civilians and non-combatant ‘sympathizers’ alike. The third topic that we address this week is the anti-Trump protest movement and how it’s grown increasingly violent lately and has begun to instigate some serious tension. Getting near the end of our countdown, we speak on how Super Tuesday 2.0 has locked all of the candidates into their political trajectories. Finally, we end our episode by analyzing Russia’s drawdown in Syria and highlighting what it reveals about the Kremlin’s calculations.
