Will Putin use nukes in Ukraine? Could Iran’s protestors do real damage to the regime?
Fareed Zakaria GPS
Oct 9, 2022

Fareed sits down with retired US Army Gen. Wesley Clark, a former NATO Supreme Allied Commander in Europe, to discuss Ukraine's recent successes in the war and whether Putin might respond with nuclear weapons. And, as protests for revolution in Iran continue, Fareed speaks to Iranian-American writer Roya Hakakian about how she says it feels like Iran’s 1979 revolution all over again and could have the same effect – the toppling of a government. Then, after OPEC+ announced it was slashing oil production, Fareed talks to Amrita Sen, founder and director of research at Energy Aspects, about the decision – one that was a present to Putin and a rebuff to Biden. Plus, when Fareed was in Ukraine he sat down with Andriy Yermak, the head of Ukraine’s presidential office and Zelensky's right hand man, to ask what it's like to govern a country at war.
