    The first thing that we talk in this episode is why Puerto Ricans are fleeing from their namesake island in record numbers.

    Next, we offer up a few words of commentary about China’s latest Democratic Security initiative in tightening the screws on foreign NGOs. Afterwards, we discuss the renewed talk that has popped up over the past week about NATO prospectively expanding into Sweden and Finland. In speaking about military agreements, we then bring up the one that the US recently concluded with Senegal and explore what it reveals about the Pentagon’s plans for AFRICOM. Lastly, we conclude this week’s episode by examining the deteriorating political crisis in Iraq and how it could be a game-changer in the War on Daesh.
