Rising Tensions amid Iran’s Regional Aspirations

Israel At War. After a long period of passively absorbing blows by Iranian proxies from Baghdad to Bab-el-Mandeb, the United States is striking back against Houthis and Iraqi militias alike.

But now with American casualties in the Red Sea and Jordan, there is a growing risk of further escalation, with the US running head-on into Iran’s ambitious regional aspirations for dominance.

What are the prospects for either a conflagration or a cooling down? Joining us for the discussion are:
- Host : Jonathan Hessen
- Editor at Large : Amir Oren : Host of Watchmen Talk and Powers in Play
- Col. (Ret.) Joel Rayburn : former Senior Director at the National Security Council in Washington and Special Envoy for Syria, and Founding Director of the American Center for Levant Studies
- BG (Res.) Yossi Kuperwasser : Project Director on Middle East Developments, Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs
