A Regional Approach to Iran

In Foreign Policy, AHS speaker Michael Singh suggests that the U.S. insists on a tough deal with Iran and to be willing to walk away from the table altogether if necessary:

"Too often policymakers resort to straw-man arguments to justify inaction, most egregiously positing "boots on the ground" as the alternative to the United States’ current ineffective policy on Syria. The United States need not act alone and certainly should not reflexively resort to military action. But the hard experiences of a decade of war and three years of turmoil in the Arab world should counsel smart, economical, and effective multilateral action, not serve as excuses for inaction."
