    Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is in Turkey today for talks with President Erdogan. Will there be a re-set or can we anticipate further frosty relations between Washington and Ankara as the battle for Raqqa heats up?

Mark Sleboda, international affairs and security analyst, joins the show.

    Is the Trump administration on the verge of a serious escalation of US involvement in the Saudi-led war against Yemen? Millions are on the brink of starvation as the war looks set to deepen. Medea Benjamin, co-founder of CODE PINK, joins Brian.
