Foreign Affairs Focus: Sanctioning Iran With Hooman Majd
In an effort to halt Iran's nuclear program, Washington and the West have been ramping up the pressure with sanctions and threats of war. None of it will work. The Green Movement has been vanquished, and the country -- both its leadership and its people -- are poised not for revolution, but more of the same.
Jonathan Tepperman, the managing editor of Foreign Affairs, speaks with Hooman Majd, who just spent a year researching in Iran. Watch them discuss the effect of sanctions on the Iranian population, the role of nationalism in Iran's nuclear program, regime change versus social change, and policy recommendations.
