Hi I’m Selwyn Manning and you are watching… A View from Afar.

Today we examine how a within a global leadership vacuum we are witnessing regionalised conflicts as middle and rising powers juxtaposition for influence.

Are we witnessing the rise of a new global order, or the beginning of a decade of conventional war?

What will significant powers like China and Russia make of the United States presidential debate?

Does the chaotic nature of the campaign highlight the shape of domestic USA, or, speak to the destructive, wrecking-ball nature of incumbent Donald Trump? And, is Joe Biden the answer to the US’s problems?

To discuss these issues we are joined by political scientist, and former US Pentagon analyst, Paul Buchanan.
