Arab leaders love the idea that President Trump is ready to give Iran a punch in the nose. But is this White House truly serious about challenging Iranian power in the Middle East? Arab leaders should consider the possibility that Trump has it backward: The right strategy would be reversing Iran's power grab in the Middle East while preserving the nuclear deal as an element of regional stability.A serious strategy to roll back Iran would begin with Syria. This would all but assure continued Iranian power in Syria.Sadr has quietly developed good relations with Saudi Arabia, and his movement may offer the best chance of maintaining an Arab Iraq, as opposed to a Persian-dominated one.Getting both Iran and Saudi Arabia out of Yemen would help, too. That's a bad idea for America, for many reasons, but the biggest is that there's no U.S. political support for a war against Iran.Trump has embarked on an Iran mission that lacks a clearly defined objective.
