Noel Cheer: Will The Middle East Melt Down?

Will The Middle East Melt Down?

The situation today has been built, and is still building, on centuries of animosity, complicated by western meddling -- and muddling -- that started a century or so ago.

Why does Israel disregard UN resolutions? Why is the governance of Palestine fractured? Will there ever be a "two-state solution" with guaranteed borders for Palestine? Will there be a pre-emptive strike against Iran's nuclear capability?

To give us something of a fix on all that, the guest this week In Conversation with Noel Cheer on Triangle Television is Senior Lecturer in Politics at Massey University, Dr Nigel Parsons.

Triangle Television, Wednesday 14th of November at 7:00pm. It will be repeated on Thursday 15th of November at 12 noon.

Lives will be lost in the trade-off. Millions of Americans stand to lose access to the healthcare they need.

Spot the difference with New Zealand, where DHBs are under intense pressure to reduce deficits within a climate of chronic underfunding. More>>
