Shaik Ubaid joins us to discuss what may be the biggest global threat of all: the nuclear faceoff in Kashmir.
Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan recently visited the United Nations and delivered a passionate, eloquent plea for the people of Kashmir—and for the people of the world to step up and stop a looming war that could easily turn into a nuclear holocaust.
