This week on Middle Theory, Donald Trump is praised by a majority of U.S. allies, in response to a targeted strike on Syria in response to a deadly chemical weapon attack.
As we begin our weekly dispatches from the MID of things, we begin with analysis of media influences over sports, and a controversial incident that occurred aboard a United Airlines plane. We also examine a tragic school shooting in California, and a number of other timely news stories before turning our attention to the big issues going on in Syria, and how U.S. involvement is changing that dynamic. What message is being sent to the international community, and what will it mean for U.S. and Russian relations?
