    We start off by explaining why US Secretary of Defense James Mattis is arguing that there shouldn’t be any geographic limitations imposed on the President’s power to authorize military force abroad.

    After that, we explore what President Erdogan meant when he called the newly opened Baku-Tbilisi- Kars railway "an important chain in the New Silk Road". Then we discuss Iran's sovereign right to build missiles for national defense. Once that's done, we take a look at why Iraqi Kurdish leader Masoud Barzani accused the US of betrayal. And finally, our top story of the week is the upcoming "Congress of the Syrian People" in mid-November.

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