There’s a lot going on in the world at the moment, including these two major stories to keep an eye on:
Russia is about to invade Ukraine with 100,000 troops and 1,200 tanks. China is thinking of invading Taiwan in a move sure to be bloodier.

But if you want a break from all that, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken has provided a diversion:
In my life, music has been a constant companion–particularly on my travels. On day one of my trip, I’m thrilled to share my first @spotify playlist, inspired by artists from Liverpool and Southeast Asia. Give it a listen–and tell me what you think! https://t.co/YNr29rXioW pic.twitter.com/t3SJtoK6Zv

“Priorities” have been spotted!
This is “giving a master class featuring an acceptance speech for an office I didn’t win” levels of tone deaf. https://t.co/T9qwNnH0H0

Hopefully Putin and Xi don’t turn Blinken’s playlist into an album called “Music to Invade Ukraine and Taiwan By.”

People left stranded in Afghanistan make Blinken’s selection of “You’ll Never Walk Alone” more ironic.

Is it possible to even be more out of touch with the world?
Or maybe they just completely don't give a s**t? https://t.co/MpQmwzX7jt
