In the first half of our show, we’ll examine the twin bomb blasts Wednesday during a ceremony to commemorate Commander Qassem Soleimani, who was killed by a U.S. drone strike four years ago. No one has yet claimed responsibility for the blasts, but Iranian officials are already pointing the finger at Israel and the U.S. In the second half, we’ll look at the violent stabbing attack of South Korean opposition party leader Lee Jae-myung, and the horrible political polarization in South Korea. How does the stabbing of a politician reflect the heightened political polarization in South Korea?
