    We begin our show by talking about why the CIA decided to expand its operations against the Taliban instead of focusing more on Daesh or al-Qaeda. Then we comment on the “NGO” that’s trying to pressure RT guests from appearing on the network.

    After that, we take a look at what's driving the US-backed Iraqi-Saudi rapprochement and whether it can succeed in Washington's goal of "containing" Iran. Once that's done, the program moves along to discussing the game-changing US-Indian military-strategic partnership and the global impact that it's expected to have. And finally, our top story of the week is the Syrian Kurds declaring their intent to "federalize" the entire country after annexing Raqqa to their self-declared statelet in northern Syria.

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