Share

Donald Trump is being quite open about the fact that he wants to undermine the historic nuclear accord with Iran. Things may come to a head in October when the administration must provide a report to Congress regarding Iran’s compliance with the accord. Trump has ordered his top advisers to find a reason — any reason — to report that Iran is out of compliance. The question is, “Then what?”

In addition to a possible war with Iran, we take a look at the rest of the hotspots in the region, including the humanitarian tragedy in Yemen, Saudi Arabia and Iraq.
