In an audacious speech before the Heritage Foundation on May 21, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo outlined a litany of complaints about the nuclear deal with Iran that accurately reflected some of its gaps, but offered no realistic remedies.Decades of European interaction with Iran have proved that maximalist goals achieve nothing and often incentivize Iran to accelerate the very policies that the United States and Europe – as well as Israel and Saudi Arabia – oppose.However, the restored and new sanctions the United States is imposing on Iran will vastly increase the suffering of Iranians while not denying Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps the relatively small amount of funds needed to continue its interventions in the region.U.S. policy will further embitter a people that was once predisposed to like Americans and set back for years the chance for Iran to reintegrate into the global economy.
