Description: This week’s Global Research News Hour presents diverse reactions to the escalating US-Iran tensions in the last week following the assassination of the Islamic Republic’s highly revered military commander General Qasem Soleimani. Allan Wise shares his thoughts as a Canadian with family living in the country, and as a critic of Iran's human rights record. Glenn Michalchuk a long-time Canadian peace activist breaks down the proper role of Canadians in reversing the tide toward war. Pepe Esscobar, journalist, gopolitical analyst and correspondent-at-large for Hong Kong-based Asia Times outlines some of the dynamics behind Trump's provocative behaviour toward the Islamic Republic, and what it means for the region, and the world.
