The world is changing quickly in 2020 with growing geopolitical conflicts on several fronts.  Those threats are most evident in the Middle East where the Trump administration recently took dramatic action in Iraq by killing a prominent Iranian general, leaving U.S. foreign policy in the region unclear and the consequences of the action unknown.  Join us to hear from a distinguished panel of experts who will discuss the history of conflict in the region, the potential geopolitical effects of the administration's actions, and the potential effects on election year domestic politics in the United States.
