Guests: Scott Cooper, PhD, and Celeste Beesley, PhD, Professors of International Affairs and Political Science at BYU President Vladimir Putin appears eager to assert Russia’s power and influence in the Middle East. Today it was announced that Russia has convinced Iran to be part of peace talks with the US this weekend toward finding a resolution to the Syrian civil war. Just last week, Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad was in Moscow meeting with Putin. Meanwhile, Russia continues air strikes against Assad’s enemies – although Russian military leaders insist their primary target is the Islamic State and not the rebel fighters trying over overthrow Assad.
