Joe Cirincione will discuss the historic Iran Nuclear Deal and how this deal has blocked Iran's pathways to building a nuclear bomb as long as the international inspections are in place. Nuclear physicists, military officials, non-proliferation experts and more have hailed this deal as the best solution available to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon without taking military action, and many believe the deal prevented a likely war. Cirincione will explain how this deal has advanced the goals of peacefully stopping the spread of nuclear weapons globally, re-shaped the politics of the Middle East, and had many different impacts on US domestic politics.
