Global(Half) SmackDown: Iran, Covid-19, Conspiracy

Global Half Smack Down Title Card

Dr. Tim Horner’s Global(Half)SmackDown for Monday, March 23, is available via Zoom (Click Here).

Today’s topic is part of the ongoing geo-political response to the Covid-19 pandemic, touching on multiple nation’s attempts to blame the pandemic on foreign powers. Some politicians in the U.S., China, and Iran, are beginning to lay responsibility for the virus’s spread on foreign nations as negligence or even intention.
