    Our show starts off by talking about the beginning of the South Sudan peace deal and the murderous rampage that a group of South Sudanese refugees carried out in western Ethiopia.

    Following that, we take a look at the Philippines and explain why a Daesh affiliate beheaded a Canadian hostage just two weeks before the country goes to the polls to choose a new leader. Next up, we speak out the Turkish parliament speaker’s lobbying effort to remove secularism from the country’s nearly centennial-old constitution and replace it with a religious state. Afterwards, our topic of discussion shifts to the series of multipolar missile tests that Russia, China, and even North Korea carried out lately as an unmistakable deterrent measure against American aggression. Finally, we conclude this week’s show by explaining what in the world India was thinking when it issued a tourist visa to an Uighur separatist leader who China accuses of terrorism, but only to backtrack on its controversial decision days later.
