Expert Weighs in on Potential Iran War
Amidst the recent bombings of Syria and continued threats from Iran, the United States and Israel are headed towards what ultimately may become a war against Iran. This would obviously have severe political ramifications, as well as potentially destabilizing the entire Middle East, as Maxwell political science professor Mehrzad Boroujerdi explained to Think Progress.
“This can really set the region ablaze. Having a country like Iran becoming unstable, in this situation, when the whole Middle East is imploding in one way or another, can really raise the stakes, considering Iran’s size, population, and the geopolitical position it occupies,” he said.
