    Did Trump Make Peace Between Israel and the UAE?

    Did Trump Make Peace Between Israel and the UAE?

    On FPF #532, I discuss Trump's announcement that the US mediated an agreement that will lead to Israel and the UAE normalizing relations. Details on the agreement remain unknown, but both sides are claiming this somehow allows for or prevents the annexation of the West Bank. While it may seem like a breakthrough, both Israel and the UAE have been apart of the US efforts to overthrow Assad in Syria and undermine the government in Iran. I explain that the relationship between the UAE and Israel becoming public will have some pushback and importance. However, I believe the main goal is to help Trump's presidency.

    Beirut Explosion: Details Emerge on the Origin of the Blast

    On FPF #529, Will Porter returns to the show to discuss the massive explosion in Beirut. So far, over 150 people have been killed; however many more remain missing. The damage to the port will also significantly harm Lebanon's economy, doing billions in damage. Will explains that a cache of improperly stored ammonium nitrate caught fire and eventually exploded. While many details – such as how the ammonium nitrate ended up at the port and how the initial fire was stated – remain unknown, hawks are rushing to turn the tragedy into anti-Russia/Iran/Hezbollah propaganda.

    Who Will Get Syria's Oil?

    On FPF #528, I discuss reports that an American company had signed an agreement with the Syrian Kurds to produce oil in Syria. The story was pushed by Secretary of State Pompeo and Senator Graham. However, the Syrian Kurds now say no agreement has been made. The Kurds added that American and Russian companies are competing for the contract. The Syrian government has argued that the Kurds do not have a right to award the contract.

World news

This is a great place to get analysis about what is going on in the world. It also gives you an idea on how events relate to and effect US foreign policy.

Excellent!

You won’t hear this in mainstream media. Kyle gives a thorough and accurate news rundown on the kinds of US military adventures overseas that once caused 9/11 and continue today more than ever, as well as the political back stories that drive them which have nothing to do with “national security”.
