    Our show starts off by discussing the hubbub over the discredited reports that India had apparently sold its supersonic anti-ship Brahmos cruise missiles to Vietnam.

    Then it moves along to talking about the scandal concerning First Lady of Zimbabwe's alleged assault of a young woman in South Africa. Once that's done, we analyze what the Kurdish-led "Syrian Democratic Forces" meant when they announced that the US has decades'-worth of military, economic, and political strategies planned for northern Syria. Next, we assess Trump's long-awaited Afghan strategy and discuss the reason why it's so problematic. And finally, our top story of the week is Serbia withdrawing its entire diplomatic staff from the Republic of Macedonia for urgent consultations in Belgrade.

    We'd love to get your feedback at radio@sputniknews.com
