Flashpoints: War with North Korea and Rebellion in Saudi Arabia

U.S. and North Korean relations worsen with each missile test and tweet to the point where military action is openly discussed by U.S. officials.  Meanwhile, bold moves by the Saudi Crown Prince have divided the Saudi royal family and agitated segments of the populace.
 
Open war with North Korea or internal turmoil for Saudi Arabia has profound social, economic, and financial implications worldwide.  WindRock interviews Eric Margolis, award-winning syndicated columnist and war correspondent.
 
Mr. Margolis discusses: how the U.S. miscalculated Chinese motives and influence over North Korea; what may trigger open war between the U.S. and North Korea; why a U.S. first strike is possible even without Congressional approval; and which missteps by the Saudi Crown Prince have dramatically increased the likelihood of a rebellion..  December 2017.
