About This Episode

After Chinese President Xi Jinping’s call for “peaceful reunification” with Taiwan and military escalation near the island, Karen DeYoung, Bobby Ghosh, and Peter Spiegel join Council President Ivo Daalder to examine where the Unites States ranks Taiwan as a foreign policy priority and what could escalate the tension. Then, they dive into election aftermath in Iraq, why the European right is losing steam, and how spiking energy prices are promising a tough winter.
