Phillip Smyth comes on the show to discuss many issues surrounding the current Iran-Saudi Arabia tensions. We covered a variety of topics, particularly on the Iranian and Shia side of the conflict, such as:

  • The regional reactions and effects of the current crisis
  • Detailed background on Nimr al-Nimr
  • Iran’s desire to represent all Shia
  • The conflict’s effect on minority Shia populations in the region
