The Wrong Way to Punish Iran
This New York Times opinion article by Henry J. Farrell and Abraham L. Newman makes these types of points:
- Renewing sanctions against Iran will have disastrous consequences for the United States. This move will “undermine America’s influence over the international financial architecture and diminish its power over allies and adversaries alike.”
- The Trump administration’s plan will be characterized as American overreach, which will threaten the stability of international economic networks.
- “The United States needs European cooperation with its approach to pressuring Iran,” and this unilateral approach will force the EU to “test America’s dominance” and further push the U.S. into economic isolation.
