I begin with comment on USG and mainstream media minimizing Yemeni casualties while accepting unconfirmed Syrian death stats reported only by the Syrian Observatory on Human Rights, a one man anti-Syrian government operation run by a Syrian clothing store owner in Coventry, England,

I then speak about the US re impositions of sanctions on Iran and secondary sanctions of any company or country that continues do business with Iran and the likely failure of the Europeans who oppose the sanctions to resist US threats and pressure. I note that Trump's bullying tactics reflect the way the US operates in the world and quote from a letter from Sen. Ted Cruz and 9 fellow Republican senators to the embassies of Britain, France and Germany, warning them against going against the wishes of the US Congress. I add a segment about the sanctions impact on SWIFT, the key outfit that facilitates global finance and note that its member banks have been warned that they, too, will be punished if they don't comply with US demands.

I finish with a report on how the British Jewish establishment has been hounding Jeremy Corbyn over his and the Labour Party's alleged antisemitism and how, rather than stand and fight the allegations, Corbyn has caved.
