    On this episode of Fault Lines, guests join hosts Garland Nixon and Lee Stranahan discussing the escalation of rhetoric as President Trump threatens: “Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and ‘smart‘“.

    Meanwhile, China's Defense Minister Gen. Wei Fenghe warns "The Chinese side has come (to Moscow) to show Americans the close ties between the armed forces of China and Russia."

    Will the war of words lead to military confrontation between the US and Russia-and China? Or will cooler heads prevail? In this administration with the newly-nominated John Bolton and Mike Pompeo joining Nikki Haley and Trump himself, are there any cooler heads involved?

    The hosts will also engage guests in discussions about the FBI's raid of Trump's lawyer, Syria, Gaza, Russia, and China-as well as other top news and trending issues in the "Divided States of America."
