Opening the third season of Inside the Issues, podcast host David Welch welcomes Bruce Riedel, a top specialist on the Middle East and a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, in a discussion on the growing tensions between Iran, Israel and the United States. Will Iranian efforts towards nuclear proliferation result in military action from Israel and/or the United States? With a presidential election on the horizon in the U.S., Riedel notes the need for a real discussion removed from political rhetoric and explores possible response options for the United States should Iran choose to pursue nuclear weapons.
