11 am: Live streaming of the current episode
11:30 am: Discussion

The Persian Gulf remains tense as the rivalry between the regional powers of Saudi Arabia and Iran continues. Tensions escalated in early 2020 as the United States began to intervene in the Gulf, launching an airstrike that killed two Iranian military commanders. What are the historical influences that have led to these tensions? What role, if any, should the United States play? Is using military force a viable foreign policy option for 2021 and beyond?

TheĀ Great Decisions Program, created by the Foreign Policy Association, is intended to promote thoughtful debate and discussion among equals.
