    After 16 years in power, Angela Merkel will step down as Chancellor of Germany.  The country’s Social Democrats edged out her party in elections this week.  What does that mean for Europe and the world going forward?  We welcome back Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson to the program to give us an update on geopolitics.  He looks at many issues, including Europe’s impending energy crisis caused by the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline deal, China’s threat of global dominance, and some dangerous Russian military exercises.  Many countries in Europe, especially Germany, are walking into a crisis with their eyes wide open.
