DAVID WURMSER, Director, Center for Security Policy’s Program on Global Anti-Semitism, former Middle East Advisor to Vice President Dick Cheney, retired, US Navy Reserves Lieutenant Commander:

  • Multi-billions of dollars have been released to Iran as the Biden administration tries to "entice" the Mullahs to come back to the negotiating table
  • David Wurmser: "Why would you be our friend if it comes at the cost of being overthrown?" 
  • Dr. Wurmser reasons that should the US abandon an ally, like Saudi Arabia, with a questionable human rights record, who’s to say that a revolution would not take hold, turning said state into a fundamentally destabilized enemy

SUZANNE SCHOLTE, President, Defense Forum Foundation, Chairwoman, North Korea Freedom Coalition: 

  • An End of War Declaration between North and South Korea would give rise to anti-American sentiments in South Korea
