About "Iran Nuclear Deal"
The United States has a tenuous and somewhat antagonistic relationship with the Iranian nuclear program. One of President Obama’s crowning diplomatic achievements, the Iran nuclear deal, was put in place to limit this program, improve relations with Tehran, and allow a poverty-stricken populace relief from sanctions.
None of those things have really come about. Iranian citizens still can’t access international credit cards, international banks have been reluctant to enter Iranian markets, Iranian officials still don’t trust Washington (and vice versa), and questions linger about the efficacy of international inspections designed to keep Iran in check. To complicate matters, Iranian rhetoric has been belligerent, and there are close ties between the Iran’s Revolutionary Guard and various terrorist organizations. How can the U.S. effectively navigate this situation?
Other topics include issues of violent threats like Hezbollah, mass shootings, and North Korea; (Round 2); international figures like Theresa May, Carles Puidgemont, and Aung San Suu Kyi (Round 3); social issues such as childhood obesity, free speech, and superstition (Semis); and America’s environmental policy (Finals).
