Guests: Josh Gubler, BYU political science professor John Macfarlane, adjunct professor of political science at UVU Steven Lobell, political science professor at the University of Utah Iran and the US, along with five other world powers, have worked out a tentative agreement to limit Iran's nuclear program. But as they say, the devil is in the details and the next few months will prove critical in securing a final deal. Just today Iran's supreme leader sounded pretty pessimistic in talking about the deal's prospects. Meanwhile, Yemen is quickly become the next site of regional conflict, with Iran backing Houthi rebels that have taken over most of the country and Saudi Arabia leading a bombing campaign to fight back the Houthis. Power dynamics in the Middle East are shifting and progress made after the Arab Spring appears to be dissipating.
