The Alliance of Moderation & Iranian Attack, US Attack Houthi Attack
On Thursday, February 25th there was an explosion on an Israeli-owned commercial ship in the Gulf of Oman.
Later that night – in the early hours of February 26th, United States forces attacked the Iman Ali Compound in eastern Syria. This Iranian military installation is a key component of Tehran’s strategy to be the regional superpower.
On Saturday night, February 27th, the Iranian-backed Yemenite Houthis attacked Saudi Arabia with ballistic missiles and attack drones.
This short video briefing reviews these events, contextualizes an alliance I have been calling The Alliance of Moderation, and emphasizes what must be the three pillars of any Western deal with Iran.
