Five years after Trump quit the JCPOA, efforts to revive it have given way to obituaries. But it is not entirely clear yet what the United States sees as the path forward.
Following Trump's withdrawal from the agreement, Iran stopped adhering to the limits the deal had set and day-by-day its nuclear program crept forward.
The war hawks should stop playing with Israeli and US lives and give Joe Biden room to secure an agreement that prevents an Iranian bomb.
The deal has the potential to de-escalate tensions, reduce the risk of conflict and may lead to further peace and security breakthroughs in the region.
Pulling back from diplomacy won't help human-rights protesters, and pushing toward conflict does nothing to further Western interests.
