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 #239, I discuss how Turkey is a loser in the Syrian Civil War. I break down an article by Joost Hilterman on Turkey's role in the Syrian Civil War. Turkey's plan to back Sunni resistance to Assad failed as it looks like Assad will retain power in Syria. The US has backed and armed the Syrian Kurdish YPG, a group Turkey identifies as terrorists. 

I update Trump calling off Pompeo's visit for North Korea and Trump's push for military intervention in Venezuela.
