North Korea has entered a new provocation cycle, which coincides with a recent US-South Korea exercise. While policy focus has been on North Korea's ballistic missile program, the launch of strategic cruise missiles should raise concerns. The reach of the tests would put South Korea and Japan in range of the strategic weapon.
After massive pro-Bolsonaro protests last week, fewer people turned out for anti-Bolsonaro protests. Slimmer attendance by opposition activists is an indicator that momentum on the streets for impeachment by the general public may not be as strong as initially thought.

As the Taliban is struggling to find the cash to fund government operations and they have blockaded Panjshir and districts in Baghlan, it is clear that the country is heading toward a humanitarian crisis.

Houthi rebels continue to target Saudi Arabia with drones and claim to have made gains in Marib. Major clashes lay ahead as the Houthis grow closer to oil and gas fields.
