Will attacks on Saudi oil drag the US into war with Iran?


Last weekend, an attack on two facilities in Saudi Arabia temporarily crippled that nation’s oil production and sent shockwaves through the global market. Houthis rebels in Yemen claimed responsibility, but Saudi Arabia and the United States say it was Iran who launched the strikes. Iran staunchly denies it was involved.

The Trump administration is publicly considering military action. But has the case been made? And, considering both public opinion and U.S. lawmakers are against intervention, would the U.S. actually go to war for Saudi Arabia? What’s next in this latest conflict?

Dr. Harlan Ullman, Chairman of the Killowen Group and a senior advisor at the Atlantic Council, joins us to discuss what the options are moving forward.
