The navies of the US, the UK and their allies continue to flex their maritime might off the coasts of Taiwan. Beijing responded with military exercises of its own, involving 56 fighter jets sent ominously close to the island. The US is putting pressure on Australia to turn against China despite its deep commercial ties, forged by four decades of trade. Thirty percent of Australian exports go to China, which buys more of said exports than Japan, the US and South Korea combined. They include diamonds, uranium, gold, coal and other natural resources. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of Chinese students enroll in Australian universities. This has meant 28 years of impressive prosperity for Australia. Will bowing to Washington’s bellicosity threaten to make all this prosperity evaporate? And can Australia afford such a course? RT America’s Faran Fronczak has the story. Best-selling author James Bradley joins Rick Sanchez to weigh in.

Russian President Putin said he will substantially increase Russian natural gas output to alleviate the EU’s gas problems, an announcement which stabilized markets in Europe and is expected to rein in the surge in gas prices. He also announced that Russia would honor its deal with Ukraine for the westward delivery of fuel, even though the fine incurred by reneging on said deal would be less expensive than keeping it. But for Russia’s commitment to Ukraine, it would instead use the much more efficient, less expensive and less ecologically destructive Nord Stream 2 pipeline for fuel delivery.

RT producer Dr. Joseph Ricci, who holds a PhD in History, discusses the bulldozing of ancient ruins in what is now Turkey but left by ancient Greek civilization. People in the region spoke Greek for as many as 3,000 years and remained culturally Greek until the 20th century. He’s convinced Turkey won’t destroy the most recognizable landmarks, such as amphitheaters and agorae, due to the massive revenue they generate through tourism.
