    This week’s episode begins by talking about the Pentagon’s proposal to send more special forces to Syria, where they’ll likely be sheltered by the Kurdish PYD militia that just treasonously declared a “federalized” state.

    Next up is the explosion of terrorism in Yemen ever since the Saudi-led war on the country, and how it’s shaping up to be the next big battlefield after “Syraq” and Libya. Afterwards, we analyze the sensational plans to build a trans-Iranian Caspian Canal, and how this ambitious proposal needs to be seen in a serious and long-term strategic light. Coming up to the end of our show, we tell everyone about the scandalous trade-off that just happened where Egypt gave two islands to the Saudis in exchange for the latter building a bridge across them to connect the two countries. Lastly, we close our show by talking about US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter’s visit to India and how the two sides have tightened their military-strategic partnership as a result.
