Jonathan Paris asks the essential questions about ongoing events in the region.
Will the Biden Administration deter Iran despite aversion of Democrats to threatening the use of force?
Will US diplomacy with Iran bear fruit in calming the region and putting Iran's nuclear aspirations in a box?
Will Israel retain autonomous decision making (from the US) in acting against Iran?
Will US Centcom strengthen regional allies by integrating Israel and moderate Arab states on an operational level?
Will the hard-line Ebrahim Raisi Presidency isolate Iran further from the international community?
Will the US become less involved whilst China becomes more involved in the region, and how will these trends affect Israel?
Join Jonathan Paris as he answers these questions.
