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.
