On FPF #70 I discuss the new travel ban is preventing Americans from going to North Korea. The travel ban can have a lot of outcomes and consequences. I update the possibility of Trump starting a private war in Afghanistan. Look into the unrest and protests in Israel. I also update Mosul, Nigeria, and Yemen.
On FPF #69, I update the Syrian Civil War. The war has over ten different armies fighting for control. Unpredictable men lead many of these armies. Several of these armies frequently change alliances and turn allies to enemies. Seemingly sensible alliances are often avoided for political reasons. Two world superpowers make it possible for war to continue to escalate in Syria. I also update Trump, Russia, and Turkey.
On FPF #68 I address the alternate reality created by the mainstream media. The alternate reality keeps American uninformed on foreign policy. Then I update two new Trump appointments. I also discuss Trump's policy on Iran. I give news updates on Mosul, Raqqa, and Yemen.
On FPF #67, I discuss the liberation of Mosul. Several officials have said the battle for Mosul is over, but fighting continues. I consider the media's lack of coverage of the destruction on Mosul. I also update Syria and Yemen.
On FPF #66, I discuss Yemen again. The crisis in Yemen continues to get worse. The cholera outbreak has infected over 300,000 and killed over 2,000. The US has doubled the amount of mid-air refueling to the Saudi coalition since Saudi Arabia murdered over 200 people at a funeral in October. The US seems only to support Saudi Arabia's war because no one is paying attention to Yemen. I also update Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Qatar, and North Korea.
On FPF #65, I discuss how the FBI creates terrorists. The FBI will bribe or blackmail Arabs in the US to become informants. The informants often target disenfranchised young Muslim Arabs then radicalize or entrap them. At times, informants use US foreign policy to radicalize someone. On other occasions, informants befriend people, then leverage that friendship to get them to play a small role in a fake terror plot. The FBI always brags about the arrests, but rarely informs the US how the FBI created the "terrorist" in the first place. I also update Russia, US weapon sales, Saudi/Qatar, Syria, Mosul, and Yemen.

On FPF #63, I talk about the first meeting between Trump and Putin. Trump and Putin met for 30 minutes and discussed several topics. Trump and Putin talked about Syria, Ukraine, cyber security, and ambassadors. I also update Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and the UK.
On FPF #62, I look at some polling that may give insight into how Trump won the election. Trump ran as the less hawkish candidate on foreign policy but has adopted a Hillary Clinton style Foreign Policy. I also update Iraq, Libya, Russia, and Mosul.
On FPF #61, I update several conflicts from around the world. In Africa, I update ongoing conflicts in Mali, Libya, and Somalia. In the Middle East, I focus on US interventions in Syria, Yemen, Iraq, and Afghanistan. I also update the civil war in Ukraine.
