In this week’s Sitrep, we ask why Donald Trump hasn’t got round to calling the Chinese President yet, and what that might say for US-China relations.
Plus we look at the President’s promise to boost defence spending.
We hear from a former head of the Army, ahead of the publication of a report into the investigation into abuse allegations in Iraq.
And after a minister warned more British troops could be sent to Afghanistan, we hear from a former captain who served three tours there.
GUESTS: General Sir Mike Jackson, former Chief of the General Staff; Admiral Sir Jonathon Band, former First Sea Lord, Scott Lucas, professor of American Studies at Birmingham University; Doug Beattie, former Army Captain
Thursday 1630 on BFBS Radio 2, 1830 on BFBS & UK bases, plus anytime afterwards online, or via the podcast.
