Foreign Policy Focus

Foreign Policy Focus is a podcast hosted by me, Kyle! It covers current events overseas and how those events affect you at home. While US military operations in the Middle East seem like they are on the other side of the world, they have real impacts on the everyday lives of Americans. Wars are the most costly of all US government actions and politicians use them to strip away rights of Americans. Knowing what your government is doing around the globe will give you insight into what they are doing at home.

On FPF #206, Will Porter returns to the show to discuss Yemen and North Korea. Will recaps the humanitarian crisis in Yemen. He explains the importance of the Port of Hodeida and how an attack on the port will have catastrophic consequences for Yemen. Kyle and Will argue the term genocide accurately describes the plight of the people of Yemen.

Will and Kyle break down the Trump/Kim summit and explain the media's bias and pessimism in its coverage of the talks. Will reviews the results of the summit, including Trump's pledge to end war games and commitment to a denuclearized North Korea.

Will Porter is a journalist who specializes in US foreign policy and Mid East Affairs. His work can be found at AntiWar.com, The Libertarian Institute, and Consortium News.
