October 10, 2022

As the weather cools stateside, the second week of October brings with it new heat – the stories we’ve watched for several weeks suddenly carry more urgency.

We provide historical context because it expands our perspective. But sometimes the intersection between the past and the present can leave us in deep reflection – how events separated by decades seem to have similarities – and this week is no exception.

We cover a lot of ground here – talk of “Armageddon” coming from the U.S. President, Russian attacks in Ukraine, North Korea marking a national day with increasingly aggressive rhetoric, a little discussed attack at a U.S. base in Syria (believed to be tied to Iran), and inflation data arriving on the same day Congress resumes the January 6th Committee Hearings. Here’s the SCOOP!
