The New Containment: Changing America’s Approach to Middle East Security. Atlantic Council. Bilal Y. Saab. July 6, 2015.

The United States and its allies have engaged in tireless diplomacy with Iran over the past few years to produce an agreement that would limit Tehran’s nuclear program for the next decade and a half. To protect the deal, assuming one is finalized, and take full advantage of its potential benefits, which include the drastic reduction of the risk of nuclear weapons proliferating in the region, the United States needs a comprehensive strategy for regional security in the Middle East, according to the author.
