Week in Review: Germany to Lead NATO Naval Command, Russia Provokes UK and U.S., Uranium Deal With China, and Much More


Show Notes

  • Russia is making a lot of headlines these days:
    • Last week the Russians tried to assassinate a former spy in broad daylight in Britain, and this week, Britain’s response was very weak.
    • Yesterday, the Trump administration blamed the Russian government for a series of cyberattacks targeting America’s power infrastructure that indicate Russia could shut America down—but America’s response was also quite weak.
    • Meanwhile, the Russians struck a strategically important uranium mining deal with the Chinese.
    • It is these types of headlines that are creating urgency within European capitals to protect themselves. This week it was announced that Germany would receive command of a nato naval headquarters on the Baltic Sea, another push toward leading a European army.
  • We also cover a lot of prophetically significant news and discuss the political views of young people in America, which are revealing an unprecedented generation gap.
