The Middle East's cold war, explained

How two feuding countries are tearing apart the Middle East.

Help us make more ambitious videos by joining the Vox Video Lab:

The Saudis and Iranians have never actually declared war on each other. Instead, they fight indirectly by supporting opposing sides in other countries and inciting conflicts. This is known as proxy warfare.

And it’s had a devastating effect on the region. Countries, especially poor ones, can’t function if there are larger countries pulling strings within their borders.

And that’s exactly what’s happening in the Middle East. The Saudi-Iranian rivalry has become a fight over influence, and the whole region is a battlefield.

  14. Now with Mohammad Bin Salman, the entire dynamics has changed in the middle East. It's no longer the Shia Persians vs the Sunni Arabs/ Israel vs the Arabs/Persians. It's Israel+US+ SAUDI ARABIA vs PERSIANS+REST OF THE ARABS+TURKEY+Russia.

  15. When peaceful are become mejority 😁😁

  16. Core Fn قال:

    U forgot Afghanistan

  17. This is not cold War. IT IS A HOT WAR 🔥.

  18. So Vox created this whole video so they could include a five-second bit suggesting the United States shouldn't have been in Iraq

  19. RAW HITM6N قال:

    nationalism is the problem here

  20. who so ever try to control Afganistan land which holy land Gandhara will get crushed

  21. Hey when you get the idea it’s all America’s fault, you see the U.S sponsored that coup in Iran putting that dictator in power who was overthrown in a revolution. But the new government is just as bad as the last, they don’t allow women’s rights and they draft kids into the army! So therefore had the U.S government not put that shah in power, then Iran wouldn’t be the dictatorship it is today, Iran wouldn’t have funded the terrorist groups that it supports, the Iran Iraq war never would’ve happened and none of this war on terror bullship would’ve happened!

  22. interesting choice, green vs red, for an "impartial" video colors speak volumes here

  23. I’m reading the comments and they’re all saying that the video is ignoring the fact that the US played a part in all of these conflicts as well, but the video isn’t about the US, it’s about how The Saudis and Iranians are a big factor in the rift appearing within these countries

  24. this video is made by radical left fools
    its mostly wrong
    i have been born in iran and still living in here, i know much more than these guys that whats going on in the middle east
    most of this man words seems lies to me
    i only hope one they Western people become grateful to their awesome culture and history instead of rejecting it due to some mad conspiracy theories
    and stop blaming their governments (most of iranians praise them because unlike you, we value freedom and democracy which lacks in my country)
    long live freedom
    long live progress
    * long live GREAT AMERICA *

  25. Morgaith قال:

    This video brought to you by the US government.

  26. I hope the war will end coz we are destroying humankind
