FULL SHOW: UK flexes military muscle, plans to deploy warships to counter China

As the US is increasing its military assets in Asia to counter China, another player is following America’s footsteps. The United Kingdom says it will permanently deploy two warships in Asian waters, starting in September. RT America’s Alex Mihailovich has the story, then former UK MP George Galloway weighs in. 

A panel of experts led by senior intelligence officers has been meeting to try and figure out the source of the so-called “Havana syndrome”- unexplained health incidents among US personnel stationed overseas. RT America’s John Huddy has the latest.

A $26 billion settlement is expected soon from three pharmaceutical distributors - Cardinal Health, Amerisource Bergen, McKesson - and drug maker Johnson & Johnson. That’s only if 40 states and municipalities, parties to the lawsuit, accept the deal. The US faced the worst year for overdose deaths with 93K people dying in 2020. Attorney and legal analyst Lionel shares his perspective.
