Today's LocoWorld TV clip explores the dynamic of sectarianism in the Middle East. With the region enveloped by 'sectarian' flashpoints on either side - Iran and the Gulf States on one and Lebanon on the other - it is important to understand how exactly the sectarian dynamic influences geopolitics. For that reason I explore in the video (which is longer than usual) some of the current flashpoints in the region. This will be an ongoing theme on TheGeopolitico.com as it is a very intricate and complex issue (sectarianism that is).
