Our regular open call will take place tonight, Monday 8/22, at 8:00pm eastern time via Skype. To join in please send us a contact request on Skype by searching for our account name amateursociety. If you have any questions or need clarification, please drop us a line on the contact page here or email us directly at

Tonight we will be discussing recent geopolitical developments in the Middle East. With all the confusion, disinformation, and propaganda it is a genuine challenge to unpack everything in order to arrive at a clear understanding of the current situation. We will be doing our best to analyze the changes that have occurred since the failed coup in Turkey and will be analyzing one central question: has the United States lost the Middle East?

We welcome your participation in an open, honest conversation where everyone is encouraged to share their thoughts and ask questions we don’t typically investigate. Thanks for your time and we look forward to speaking with you!
