Protests in Ukraine, Mexican cartels on social media and the Israeli government on Iran nuclear deal

Ukrainians came out in protest again in Kiev to demand the resignation of President Viktor Yanukovich. We get an update from Mychailo Wynnyckyj, associate professor of sociology at the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy. Mexico has one of the largest online Spanish-speaking populations in the world, so it may be no surprise that drug cartels there have taken to social media as well. The SecDev Foundation’s Antoine Nouvet walks us through some of the ways in which Mexican drug cartels are employing new information technologies to do business. Then, historian John Schmidt explains how a toddler ended up becoming China's last emperor. Plus, Roey Gilad, the Israeli Consul General to the Midwest, joins us to explain why Israel opposes the recent nuclear deal with Iran.
