Russia's Ambassador Assassinated: The Meaning for Russia, Turkey, Syria

Russia's Ambassador Assassinated: The Meaning for Russia, Turkey, Syria
On today's episode of Loud & Clear, Brian Becker is joined by Sputnik International political analyst Dmitry Babich to discuss the shocking assassination of Russia's ambassador to Turkey.

Andrey Karlov was shot dead in Ankara at an art exhibition as his shooter, a policeman, shouted “Do Not Forget Aleppo”. Russia has called the incident an act of terrorism, but will the western powers agree? How will this incident impact the war in Syria and relations between Turkey and Russia?

The evacuation of Islamist rebels from Aleppo continues as the mainstream media shamefully ignores attacks by jihadists and the evacuation of the Shia majority villages of Fua and Kefraya. Will the UN Security Council resolution to send observers make a difference? Catherine Shakdam, independent political analyst, joins Becker to discuss the ongoing information war.

As President Obama holds his last press conference  the narrative that Russia had a role in hacking the Democratic Party during the election continues to be promoted endlessly in the corporate media. Will there be any letup in this war-mongering campaign? Becker is joined by Mark Sleboda, international affairs and security analyst.
