Conflict expert Ken Christie appeared on CHEK News, exploring tensions between the United States and Iran after the American strike that killed an Iranian general, which was countered by Iranian missile attacks on American military bases in Iraq.

Here is an excerpt:

“The chances of it escalating are pretty high. We really don’t know what’s happening inside Iran. We know the Iranians are very upset. I’m not sure why the United States took this action at this moment. It may be to deflect what’s going on in domestic politics.”
