Abstract

The nuclear agreement with Iran, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), fails to achieve the stated goal of the P5+1: blocking all pathways to an Iranian nuclear bomb. Iran has merely agreed to certain limitations on its nuclear activities —a departure from the original U.S. policy goal of dismantling Iran’s illicit nuclear infrastructure. And even these modest restrictions are fatally flawed because they disappear over time. Iran, instead, will mothball certain equipment and reduce enriched uranium stockpiles for ten to fifteen years, after which Tehran can expand its nuclear activities and build an industrial-scale infrastructure powered by advanced, much more efficient centrifuges. As the United States and its partners dismantle the global sanctions regime, Iran can build greater economic resiliency against potential, future sanctions pressure.
