Austin Long, Member of SIWPS and Assistant Professor at SIPA, was interviewed Sunday about the possibility of a military strike in Iran to disrupt its nuclear program. Dr. Long, who co-wrote a report reviewing the potential effects of attacking Iran for the Iran Project, noted several problems with this approach–particularly that any option that would guarantee Iran would be unable to continue its weapons program would require a conventional war and long-term occupation. On the other hand, Dr. Long cautioned that the potential for a nuclear-armed Iran “is a problem for the entire world,” not just Israel.
