We’re Stumbling Into WW3

On Monday, Iran took responsibility for a series of missiles that exploded near the U.S. Consulate in Erbil, Iraq — missiles that had allegedly been intended to take out “headquarters of spies” and “anti-Iranian terrorist gatherings in parts of the region.” On today’s episode of The Spectacle, hosts Melissa McKenzie and Scott McKay comment on the instability in the Middle East and discuss President Biden’s weak response to provocations in the region. They talk about the dangerous and costly Houthi attacks on cargo ships in the Red Sea, and Taiwan’s recent elections that could have China backed into a corner.
