Hudson Inst: Iran’s Land Bridge

September 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Iran’s Land Bridge: Countering a Growing Influence in the Middle East

The threat of an Iranian land bridge through Iraq and Syria—measured both in established influence and a physical presence—has become a reality. Iran’s goal for regional hegemony, a strategic plan more than three decades in the making, has come to fruition. With such a route in place, Iran can increase logistical and operational support to Lebanese Hezbollah and other IRGC-directed proxies.

Is it possible to disrupt this route, and can it be done without provoking further conflict? On September 29, Hudson Institute will host a discussion assessing these and other elements of Iran’s strategic posture in the region. Hudson fellows Michael Pregent, Hillel Fradkin, and Lee Smith will join Ilan Berman of the American Foreign Policy Council to discuss the changing situation in the Middle East and the appropriate U.S. policy response.

This event will be live streamed on Hudson’s homepage. A light lunch will be available before the event at 11:45 am and the program will begin at noon.
