Thousands of protesters are taking to the streets in Iran, Bahrain, and Yemen following the recent uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia. Boston University international relations professor Stephen Kinzer, former New York Times foreign correspondent and author of “Reset: Iran, Turkey and America’s Future,” was recently interviewed on The Takeway with his thoughts on what is next for the region.

“There are many forces in these countries that are deeply vested in the status quo. Things will be the same for security forces in many of these countries and for ruling elites if there is a change in regime and many of them are deeply worried about that.”
