On GPS Sunday: Top panel on Russia, Iran + Syria, plus insights from inside North Korea

Watch "Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN

On GPS this Sunday: Fareed convenes a panel of leading analysts to discuss issues ranging from Russia's recession to the extension of nuclear talks with Iran to strikes in Syria and Iraq. Offering their take are Richard Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations and author of a new article on a disordered world, Robin Wright, a distinguished scholar at the Wilson Center, Chrystia Freeland, now a member of Canada's parliament and formerly a top editor at Thomson Reuters, and David Rothkopf, author of the book National Insecurity: American Leadership in An Age of Fear.

“Putin can continue to do the kinds of things he's doing in Ukraine or other places. That won't bring about greater sanctions,” Haass says. “And let's be honest, the real sanction against Russia is nothing that the United States and the Europeans has done. The real sanction is oil at $60 odd a barrel.”

Also on the show, inside North Korea – the fascinating story of subterfuge and spying inside the borders of one of the world's most secretive and closed-off nations.

Plus, an experiment in how to fix American education. The laboratory was the nation's largest school system. The investigator, a man with a stellar resume but a rank outsider. Joel Klein explains what he learned as chancellor of New York City schools.

      Fareed is actually well respected by most parties and is one of the last biased people in the media. He is not unbiased. But he is only a little biased.

      Fareed Zakaria, read my lips. Your biased bigotted reporting has been met with disdain. Your logic is flawed. Your facts are wrong. Your journalism is unethical. You are the epitomy of His Master’s Voice.

    Fareed needs to seek atonement and perhaps another profession. His ethics are third world and similar to the woman bashing Microsoft guy who is also of Indian origin. Shame on them. They are misfits in our western society.

      These Indians are a disgrace to our great country. Mexicans are geniuses compared to these hindoos. At least they believe in Jesus not some ugly duckling terrorist deities.

  4. Prince of Kashmir

    Charles De Gaulle: "The people of Kashmir have been struggling for many years to have the right to their own destiny. Imagine Scotland being separated into two parts with one being given independence and the other half occupied by British troops at a ratio of one soldier for every two civilians, with restrictions on all their movements. The people of Kashmir have always rejected the idea of having a border separating it."

    Dont kid yourself and try to spread false information. Kashmir belongs to the Muslim majority. Just like US is letting the Puerto Ricans decide their fate, a plebiscite needs to be held in Kashmir under UN supervision to allow these people to decide their future. That is what democracy is all about

    I was in Detroit last month. I took the taxi to avoid Pakistani ugly bus oder. Well guess what? The taxi smelled so very very bad that I passed out. When I came out of it the taxi driver apologized. He said that a lot of muslim pakis ride in his cab and he hadn't had a chance to disinfect it. He was wearing a gas mask and special suit

    Pakistan is a country full of illiterate people. They also are terrrrorists. They are so dumb that they cannot read their holy bible.

    The state of Florida has a new program to kill mosquitoes that will save tens of thousands of dollars.
    They will get a truck full of pakis and use their BO as poison gas to kill mosquitoes within a 200 mile radius.
    Thank u Pakistan for your dirty stinky immigrants

    The Muslims in Pakistan are a bunch of thieves. They are also jihadists that kill innocent Christians. They all need to be put in jail.

    We have no national interests in continuing to oust Syria president Assad. We need to not support doubtful "good rebels" and let Assad take care of ISIS in Syria with his well trained and armed military. We need to reduce our presence in these countries of intense religious extremists.

      "We" already are reduced in the ME. Both troops and CIA agents have been being called home in large,numbers. Next assignment: U.S.
      Current assignment, rather.

    @ billbl, we had a huge part in the creation of ISIS particularly in Syria! Therefore it is our responsibility to maintain airstrikes on them! We have ignored the pleas for help from the Syrian people for far too long already...and THIS evilness was our means of "helping" so now that it has become a huge error...we have to do whatever we have the power to do, to exterminate these barbaric beings!
