In This Episode: “Saudi Arabia is not the friend you would pick for your kickball team if you had a choice.”
While the pandemic continues to take its toll around the world, the issues in the Middle East continue unabated. Les, Jodi, Jamil, and Dana put the Middle East under the microscope this week and discuss the protests in Lebanon, the war in Yemen, and the dysfunctional government in Iraq. Why are the Lebanese back in the streets? Is it possible for the humanitarian crisis in Yemen to get worse? How much can America actually influence outcomes in the Middle East? All these questions and more answered in this week’s Fault Lines.
