    This week’s edition of Context Countdown begins by discussing the Western mainstream media’s atrocious double standards in reporting on the suicide attacks in Tartus and Jableh.

    After that, we swing the discussion over to Pakistan to talk about how the CIA just assassinated the Taliban leader there. Next up, we take a look at why Obama decided to lift the arms embargo against Vietnam and the impact that this will have on the South China Sea’s stability and American-Chinese relations. Following that, we return our focus back to Syria in explaining the significance of US CENTOM leader Joseph Votel’s secret visit to Syria and what it presages about the final stages of the Race for Raqqa. Lastly, we wrap up this week’s show by telling everyone about the plight of Mateusz Piskorski’s, Poland’s first political prisoner since the end of communism.
