The Middle East cold war seems to last forever. It seems like nobody cannot remember when it all started. But the reality is that two feuding countries are tearing apart the Middle East.

For many years now, the Saudi-Iranian rivalry is what has become the topic in the Middle East. Their rivalry and fight over influence has made the entire region a battlefield where the two countries compete.

Why exactly the conflict started? And how did we get so far? This short video and documentary tries to explain the nitty-gritty of the Middle East cold war. After watching it you will have a better grasp and understanding of the situation in the Middle East. And you can decide for yourself whether the Saudi or the Iran part is right or wrong.

And while neither Saudi Arabia nor Iran has actually declared war, they are constantly fighting indirectly by supporting opposing sides in other countries. They are inciting conflicts for years. And the cold war has had devastating effect on the region. Will the war end just like the Cold War between USA and America?
