Who’s threatening Whom?

“ From Trump to Biden, Consistencies and Differences in U.S. Middle East Politics” ” Tuesday, November 24, 2020 @ 6-7pm MST, KGNU: Hemispheres, Middle East Dialogues, hosted by Jim Nelson.

True there was no “October Surprise”, no U.S. military attack on Iran in the Middle East that some feared. But now that the elections are over – even if a certain person fails to appreciate the fact – the country and the world have entered an unstable period of transition where all bets are off as to how the Trump Administration will leave its Middle East mark. Remembering that in 2016, after Donald Trump had won the presidency how the Obama Administration and Congress imposed a series of sanctions against Russia which would make it very difficult for Trump to improve relations, now Joe Biden fears that Trump will complicate U.S. efforts to return to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, more commonly known as the “Iran Nuclear Deal.” There is a new foreign policy team coming together in Washington with names like Michele Flournoy, Tony Blinken thrown out. Who are they? What can we expect from them in terms of improving U.S. Middle East policies, if anything.
All that and more…KGNU-Hemispheres-Middle East Dialogues, hosted by Jim Nelson, with Ibrahim Kazerooni and Rob Prince. Now in its 11th year.
