[I24 International News] April 30th: Netanyahu had an Audience of One, Trump.

I appear on I24 International News on April 30th. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu just went on the offensive regarding the Iranians and the Nuclear Deal signed by the U.S., the Brits, French, Russians and Chinese. Netanyahu just claimed that he had a ton of new evidence that proved the Iranians were lying and that President Trump shouldn't renew the Nuclear Deal.  Of course, this has been Bibi's argument all along so there is no real shock there.

This is going to be a fun and complex conversation.  There are a lot of moving parts and there is a lot of debate going on in Israel about this issue too.

[AM950 Minneapolis] April 30th: John Bolton Wants the Libya Model for North Korea?

I appear on AM 950 in Minneapolis with Matt McNeil.  Today, Trump's National Security Advisor John Bolton said he supports the Libya model. For those who may not know, this is where the West and primarily the U.S. negotiated with Gaddafi to give up his nuclear weapons and ambitions in return for aid and international acknowledgement. By the way, it worked.  

Of course there was a slight problem . . . .  After the agreement, the U.S. turned on the Libyan leader and supported his enemies.  As a result, he was hunted down and sodomized and killed in a ditch.  So, while Bolton may like that plan, I'm pretty sure Kim Jung Un is not up for it.

This agreement is nowhere near done.  Lots to discuss.

[KNUS Denver] April 27th: Peace on the Korean Peninsula?

I appear on on KNUS Denver with my old buddy Steffan Tubbs.  Is there finally going to be peace between the North and South Koreans.  Kim and Moon met today, only the third time leaders of the two nations have ever met. Further, North Korea's Kim is scheduled to meet with President Trump sometime in June. Trump and Kim are expected to talk nucs. It is difficult to conceive of Kim willingly giving up nuclear weapons or truly anything the U.S. is willing to provide in exchange that would motivate Kim to do so. Of course, Trump is likely to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal which may actually make coming to agreement with the North Korean leader even harder.

I will discuss this and more on the program. I'm excited.

[AM950 Minneapolis] April 27th: Trump And the Nobel Prize in the Same Sentence?

I appear on AM 950 with Mike McIntee.  North Korea's Kim Jong Un met with South Korea's President Kim today to discuss the end of a war that has been in armistice since 1953.  It is a potentially an extraordinary turn of events.  They are also discussing nuclear weapons.  This too is an extraordinary turn of events. President Trump is arguing that it is he has driven this and some are even suggesting that he should get the Nobel Peace Prize.  Yeah we will discuss this too.

Hand on for this one. It should be interesting.

[Press TV Iran] April 22nd: Another Kabul Bombing with Lots of Blame to Go Around

I appear on Press TV Iran to talk about the latest bombing in Kabul as the elections approach. ISIS has taken responsibility for this and a recent series of attacks that have left scores dead across Afghanistan. This certainly isn't new and combine that with ongoing attacks by the Taliban and Afghanistan certainly continues to spin out of control. Further, Afghanistan's neighbors including Pakistan and Iran continue to watch with interest. The US too continues to play an almost passive role, supporting the government that some see as illegitimate while failing to provide enough support to make a difference.

This will be an intereting conversation.
