Abstract:

US foreign policy toward Iran has evolved to a point that it can no longer compete with or overcome certain forces. At the same time, forces are present that could assist the US in reestablishing formal dialogue and, ultimately, normal diplomatic relations with Iran. Globalization is the force that in some instances is assisting US foreign policy. At the same time, other elements of globalization are eroding US desires with respect to Iranian programs in WMD. The time has come for the US to admit that its current policy of sanctions is obsolete. The US needs to reengage Iran on economic and social terms that are the byproducts of economic globalization.
