You are cordially invited to a lecture on the topic of
How War With Iran Benefits Russia
Founder, The Weichert Report
IWP Class of 2016
Tuesday, November 14, 2017
The Institute of World Politics
1521 16th Street NW
This lecture is sponsored by the Kosciuszko Chair of Polish Studies and the Center for Intermarium Studies.
About the Lecture:
The Islamic Republic of Iran wants nuclear weapons to solidify its growing regional hegemony in the Middle East. Such an event will destabilize the already precarious regional order. The Trump Administration is committed to preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear arms at all costs--even potentially risking war with the Islamic Republic. If conflict with Iran were to erupt, Iran's long-time strategic partner, the Russian Federation, would disproportionately benefit.
