Porkins Great Game: Episode #11 - Gladio B Heats Up in Syria

On this edition of Porkins Great Game, Pearse Redmond and I start off by looking at some recent developments in Georgia. We discuss the latest attempt by Ukrainian governor Mikheil Saakashvili to cause trouble in his home country and we talk about Georgia's plans to purchase gas from Russia and Iran. Afterwards, we move on to Syria. Pearse and I examine whether or not there is any truth to the claim that China is getting involved in Syria. After breaking down Beijing's concerns with regard to the increasing number of Uyghur jihadists in Syria, we discuss Turkey's motivations for shooting a down a Russian jet and Russia's response. Last but not least, our favorite segment of weird terrorism stories deals with claims that North Korea and the Dalai Lama are supporting ISIS. We close out this month's episode by touching upon the new media project that Sibel Edmonds is working on and that both of us will be a part of.
