6:00 PM Discussion: Middle East Meltdown with Ryan Crocker The modern Middle East is 100 years old, but the chaos and turmoil we are seeing now is unprecedented. The region has always been the scene of coups and revolutions. This is different -we are seeing complete state failure, in Libya, in Yemen, and most horrifically in Syria. What has led to this? Where will it go? Why is it important? What can we do about it? These are profound questions for America's national security and place in the world.
