A Book Discussion with
Matthew Kroenig
Nonresident Senior Fellow
Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security

Atlantic Council
As diplomats return to the negotiating table on May 13 in an attempt to negotiate a comprehensive nuclear deal with Iran, it is a propitious time to review the prospects for a negotiated settlement and our options for resolving the Iranian nuclear challenge if the talks do not succeed. President Obama has vowed that he is willing to do whatever it takes, including using military force, if necessary, to keep Tehran from the bomb. If not stopped, a nuclear-armed Iran would pose a grave threat to international peace and security, including the potential for a nuclear arms race in the region and around the world, and an increased risk of nuclear war, among other major threats.

Matthew Kroenig, internationally recognized as one of the world’s leading authorities on Iran’s nuclear program, will give remarks on the history of Iran’s nuclear program, options available to policymakers, and what the resolution of the Iranian nuclear crisis will mean for the future of international order.

As described in his new book, A Time to Attack: The Looming Iranian Nuclear Threat, Kroenig will discuss why the Obama Administration should be prepared to conduct a limited strike on Iran’s key nuclear facilities if diplomacy fails to resolve the Iranian nuclear challenge.

Join us for a discussion with the author, followed by a wine reception, on Monday, May 12, 2014, from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
