World Affairs Forum

We live in interesting times. Your opinion matters.

Will the UK finally pull the Brexit emergency brake, or will they go off the cliff clutching Boris Johnson's imaginary parachute? Will the US and China drift into a Trade War . . . and how will Canada be affected? How will Trump respond when he discovers that the rest of the world continues to commercially engage with Iran? How much longer can Venezuela hold on . . . weeks, days? North Korea promised to do what? The US mid-term elections are drawing near, and Trump is besieged by a torrent of law suits. Refugees, Mueller's investigation, Chinese financial distress, and will Michael Cohen flip? BTW: What's the latest on the Kinder-Ottawa pipeline?

Upcoming topics:

Thursday, December 6th - The Middle East: Who could have predicted that with Turkey, Qatar, Yemen, Iran, Syria and Saudi Arabia all simmering, that Iraq would be an oasis of calm?  Or is trouble brewing there too?

Dates & Topics for 2019 to be announced soon.
