Week in Review: Russian War Games, Calls for U.S. of Europe, Italy’s Deal With Libya, U.S. Wildfires, and Much More
- Russia has started its biggest military exercises since the end of the Cold War this week in Belarus. It’s another aggressive move that has Europeans nervous and wondering if all those troops will go home once the war games end.
- The president of the European Commission this week laid out his vision of Europe’s future, and despite Britain choosing to leave the unification project, Eurocrats are still going full steam ahead.
- The flow of migrants from Libya into Italy slowed dramatically last month—and it turns out it was because of a shady deal Europeans made with some unsavory groups within Libya.
- We’ll also talk about terrorism in London—the environmental disasters in the United States you didn’t hear about because of hurricanes Harvey and Irma—the real meaning behind sanctions against North Korea—how Hezbollah’s budget has quadrupled since the nuclear deal with Iran went into effect—and how opioid addiction has quadrupled just since 2000.
