[BONUS] Iran Flareup Puts Iraq's Fate In The Balance
01.09.2020 - By SE Cupp Unfiltered
Cooler heads prevailed in the faceoff between the US and Iran, for now. But both countries still have forces fighting in a hot war in Iraq, so there's no separating the Iran tensions from the decade-and-a-half conflict in Iraq.

Joining SE Cupp with analysis and historical context on this complicated geopolitical moment is CNN Military and Diplomatic Analyst, retired Rear Admiral John Kirby.
