    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, Brian Becker is joined by Lucas Koerner, a Venezuela-based activist and writer for Venezuelanalysis.com.

    Venezuela's government has repelled an attack on a military base that was conducted by armed elements of the right wing opposition — the latest bid to destabilize the country after the inauguration of the constituent assembly.

    Donald Trump has signaled his frustration with the situation in Afghanistan, where the brutal US-led occupation is in its 16th year. A bitter divide within the administration and the growing influence of Washington's opponents inside the country is further weakening the US position. Brian Terrell, co-coordinator of Voices for Creative Nonviolence who has organized many solidarity trips to Afghanistan, joins the show.

    As new sanctions are enacted against North Korea for more missile tests, the United States is banning its citizens from traveling to the country beginning on September 1. Is this ban on American travel a signal that the US might soon take military action? Juyeon Rhee of the Solidarity Committee for Democracy and Peace in Korea who recently led a peace delegation to South Korea opposing US militarism, joins Brian to discuss the latest developments.
