The current US administration has a clear strategy with respect to Iran: maximum economic sanctions in lieu of the previous nuclear deal. But, what are the potential negative outcomes of this policy which may negatively impact the US in the long term?
I can list a few of them, although they are not huge costs:
- US is discredited because of leaving Iran's nuclear deal without a convincing reason.
- EU, Russia and China don't allow US to become an economic punisher in world.
- Iran may get more radical, and try to revenge in non-economic approach.
But, is there any other cost that politicians are citing in opposition to this strategy?
