The Middle East is experiencing a historic power shift, and Americans should be paying attention.
Jason Buttrill joined Mike Opelka on Thursday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program” to explain how Iran fuels terrorism, why the region’s powers are shifting and what’s the difference between Syrian Kurds and Iraqi Kurds.
“Everything is changing, and everyone is trying to be the leader,” Jason said.
The lines in the Middle East have been redrawn at various points throughout history, and today’s shift parallels what happened after World War I to some extent, Jason explained.
One influence shaping today's Middle East is the power struggle in Syria. The U.S. is arming Kurds in Syria even though their leader is a Marxist-Leninist, and they may carve out their own new country.
“That’s who we’re looking at taking charge in northern Syria after ISIS is being expelled,” Jason said. “So that’s one of the lines.”
Jason also explained how Al-Qaeda and Iran have a mutually beneficial relationship where Al-Qaeda won’t attack the country and Iran will give terrorists safe haven as long as they continue to attack the West instead.
