FOX Carolina Anchor Justin Dougherty turned to Furman University’s Brent Nelsen for his take on Iran’s drone and missile strike on Israel over the weekend. Nelsen, the Jane Fishburne Hipp Professor of Politics and International Affairs, laid out possible options Israel might consider including an all-out attack, an attack on Iran’s proxies, or a “call it even,” no response approach. In earlier coverage on FOX Carolina, Nelsen commented on what the attack could mean for the U.S. and the Middle East.
