    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5408H] * The crisis in Ukraine and the threat of Islamic State militants (ISIL) are just two of the foreign policy challenges President Obama and his national security team are facing this week.
    The conflict in Ukraine has intensified as Russian troops have brazenly moved inside Ukrainian territory. NATO released satellite images it says show as many as 1000 Russian armed forces entering southeastern Ukraine, a claim Russia denies. The escalation comes just days after Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko met to discuss ways to end the conflict.
    Rooting out Islamic State extremists in Syria and Iraq is proving more challenging for the Obama administration. During a news conference on Thursday, President Obama said the US was considering a range of options to confront and destroy ISIL militants but added that the US did not have a strategy yet.
    Alexis Simendinger of RealClearPolitics and Hannah Allam of McClatchy Newspapers will have analysis of the evolving US strategy in dealing with ISIL and the new challenges the Russia-Ukraine standoff has created.
    * Plans by restaurant giant Burger King to purchase Canadian coffee-and-doughnut chain Tim Hortons and relocating its corporate headquarters north of the border has added fire to the controversy over a growing trend of US companies relocating abroad. Greg Ip of The Economist will explain why the dysfunctional corporate-tax system in American may be to blame.
    * Plus, Dan Balz of The Washington Post will take a closer look at the dominant issues for voters leading into the midterm elections from raising the minimum wage to global instability and immigration reform. And be sure to read Gwen's Take on why voting for the candidate you dislike the least, may not be the best strategy in the voting booth this fall.
