Qatar: The Strategic Impact of an Unresolved Crisis

June 30, 2017

Episode Notes:

Why is the Qatar crisis still going on and why can't senior U.S. officials resolve it? Why are Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates so upset with Qatar? Can Qatar address their grievances? What does this say about the Trump administration? Geoffrey Gresh of the National Defense University's College of International Security Affairs (yes, his opinions are just his and not the U.S. government's) joins us to discuss these questions and more. Gresh is the author of Gulf Security and the U.S. Military - surely a must-read to understand what's happening today.
