2/27/23 Trita Parsi: Biden Opens the Door to War in the Middle East

2/27/23 Trita Parsi: Biden Opens the Door to War in the Middle East

Download Episode.

Scott talks with Trita Parsi who just wrote an article for Responsible Statecraft about the path to a new war breaking out in the Middle East. In the article, Parsi runs through the history of tension between Israel and Iran to demonstrate that, while certainly not being partial to Iran, the American government has often stepped in and pushed back against the worst of Israel’s warmongering. However, that is no longer the case. Parsi and Scott examine what geopolitical dynamics have changed to get us to a point where war could conceivably break out soon. 

Discussed on the show:

Trita Parsi is the Executive Vice President of the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft and the author of Losing an Enemy: Obama, Iran and the Triumph of Diplomacy. Parsi is the recipient of the 2010 Grawemeyer Award for Ideas Improving World Order. Follow him on Twitter @tparsi.
