Wars within war? Ft. Randa Slim, Director at the Middle East Institute

There are so many dimensions to the war in Syria that it may be worthwhile to see it as not just one but many conflicts in tandem. It not only has reignited the dynamics of the original Cold War, pitting Russia against the United States, but has also fueled what many regional experts refer to as the Arab Cold War, an indirect but unrelenting rivalry between Iran and Saudi Arabia. Is Syria still central to the future balance of power in the region? To discuss this, Oksana is joined by Randa Slim, a Director at the Middle East Institute.
