On each and every show I don’t just provide you news in the City, but current events around the world–and how they impact you and the world around you. And on this show, I talk about the new war in Iraq and the emergence of a new terrorist threat, ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria)
On June 24th, 2014, the Western world witnessed a new face to terrorism; when terrorist group ISIS conquered a big chunk of northern Iraq. Through its sophistication in technology and social media, as well as its organization in human resources, ISIS was able to downsize the Al-Qaeda threat and put the new Post-Iraqi War government in disarray.
In this talk I did not only break down the new conflict in Iraq, (going back its to its original roots) but point out the complications. If the US and/or its allies were to intervene in Iraq, they could risk a political “blowback”–helping a Shia government that has been suppressing the Sunnis since 2009 (which the Sunnis have now called ISIS their savior).
What is important is the fact that this new threat is real and will affect national and international politics; if this crisis is not dealt with swiftly but most importantly diplomatically. The world cannot turn a blind eye on ISIS!
This radio show was produced in July 2014 by Lauren Culp and MJ, from the UR Business Network, whom also commented on this topic. On this show I also gave tribute to decease baseball Hall of Famer, Tony Gwynn.
