The current U.S. effort to economically weaken and diplomatically subdue Iran seems like the very definition of a “maximum pressure” campaign. But maximum pressure doesn’t mean optimal pressure.
If the U.S. wants Iran to engage in new talks to replace a 2015 nuclear deal, is the current approach the best way to go about that? What makes a successful pressure campaign and is this one of them?
This week on Wake we’ll talk to the Rand Corporation's Ariane Tabatabai about the big picture of the US-Iran standoff, what both sides want and what to expect in the months ahead.
