The Loss of Momentum

Yesterday in Commentary Magazine, AHS advisor Max Boot cautioned that the United States is no longer serious about containing Iran:

"In politics, war, sports, and other realms momentum counts for a lot. If you maintain the momentum, you can give the appearance that your victory is inevitable. This disheartens your adversaries, emboldens your side, and leads waverers to root for your cause. The West has just lost momentum in the battle to keep Iran from going nuclear."
