    Poland’s proposal to host a permanent US military base on its territory is an aggressive anti-Russian move, but it also carries with it strategic consequences for China and the “Three Seas Initiative”, too.

    We start off our show by talking about why NATO chose Colombia as its first-ever Latin American "global partner". Then we move over to the Mideast to explain what's driving Russia's interest in participating in the Trans-Arabian Railway project. After that, our next subject of discussion is the geopolitics surrounding Nord Stream II and why the US is so fiercely against it. Once that's done, our penultimate topic is how Syria has already decided on a list of experts to attend the upcoming UN-supervised "constitutional commission". And finally, our top story of the week is how Poland proposed to host a permanent US military base on its territory.
