The battle for Mosul is heating up and it looks as if ISIS is being pushed out of its Iraqi capital. Is the caliphate in it's final days? Does the Iraqi Army have what it takes to push ISIS out of the city? We speak to our voice in Iraq and get his perspective on the push into Mosul.

Then we head around the globe to get journalists' reactions to Trump's latest battle in, as the mainstream media puts it, "the war on the media." This week at CPAC, Trump called the mainstream fake news "the enemy of the people." So why is anyone surprised he isn't going to the White House Correspondent's Dinner? How long will it take the media to realize they keep taking the bait?

Trump's epic press conference has gone global. If you watched the spectacle, you knew the popular media would be screaming, "The president can't say that!" We get a global perspective on the "rant and rave" press conference.

Then we'll speak to our Russian voice about the firing of Michael Flynn. What are they saying in Russia about the firing of Trump's national security advisor? Was Flynn really in deep with the Russians or is this Trump trying to appease the popular media?

Finally, we'll speak to Riki Ellison about last week's North Korean missile launch. We'll speak to him about the US response to more missile tests. Is Trump getting ready to finally take care of the Kid Dictator? What's taking so long?

Kim Jong Un has launched a another missile, but was he testing the missile or President Trump? This is Trump's first real international head-to-head with the kid dictator. Was it a coincidence the missile was fired while Trump was meeting with the Japanese prime minister? We'll go into the Korean DMZ to speak with our voice on the ground about what Trump's response should be.

Then we're headed to Turkey where we speak to Oguz about a possible Spring referendum to expand Erdogan's ability to deal with Trump. What would these expanded powers mean for the future of Turkey and the Middle East?

And finally, we'll discuss Bashir al-Assad's interview on Yahoo News last week. The Syrian president made the assertion that some immigrants are "definitely" terrorists. Does his assertion hold any weight in the ongoing immigration debacle in Washington?

n the last week, the Trump travel ban has been more on-and-off than Kanye's career. So what will the final results of Trump's most controversial executive order (to date) be? We'll speak to voices in the UK and find out what the world believes the ultimate outcome will be.

Then, what happened in Yemen this week? All we know for sure is one helicopter went down and we lost a Navy Seal. We'll speak to our voice there and find out what he knows about the US Military operation.

Finally, at Voice to America, we enjoy watching the global media disintegrate before our eyes. It's actually more entertaining than Super Bowl Sunday. We'll have plenty of clips from around the world showcasing the dinosaur media and their attempts to stay relevant with hip new stars like Oprah!
