Strategy for a New Comprehensive U.S. Policy on Iran

(Foundation for Defense of Democracies) Mark Dubowitz and Orde Kittrie - America should adopt a "roll back" strategy to intensify the existing weaknesses of the regime and to support the Iranian people's goal of establishing a government that abandons the quest for nuclear weapons and is neither internally repressive nor regionally aggressive. The administration should address every aspect of the Iranian menace, not merely the nuclear program. The Islamic Republic cannot be reformed; it must be rolled back. Washington should target the regime's terrorist networks, influence operations, and proliferation of weapons, missiles, and drones. Iranian military support for Vladimir Putin's murder of Ukrainians, and growing Russian support for the Islamic Republic's military expansion, should be a wakeup call for Washington and Europe that Tehran's malign activities will not remain confined to the Middle East. President Biden also should explicitly abandon the objective of returning to the JCPOA nuclear deal. Mark Dubowitz, an expert on Iran's nuclear program who has been sanctioned by Iran, is the chief executive of FDD, where Orde Kittrie, a law professor at Arizona State University, is a Senior Fellow.
