Scott is joined by Trita Parsi to talk about Iran. They go over developments with U.S-Israeli relations and the new American troop deployments, both of which Parsi says make war with Iran more likely. They finish with a quick look at the recent U.S-Iran prisoner deal.
Discussed on the show:
- “By caving to Israel, Biden opens the door to war” (Responsible Statecraft)
- “With Marines on Persian Gulf vessels, is Biden risking war with Iran?” (Responsible Statecraft)
