Description

Ten years after the United States launched the first preventive war in its history – against Iraq in 2003 – American leaders are once again wrestling with the preventive war temptation, this time directed at Iran and its nuclear program. Scott Silverstone (United States Military Academy at West Point) will explore and explain this profound shift in American thinking about preventive war over the past sixty years.
