“Coping With Iran”

I’ll be gone most of the day at this Rand Corporation public policy forum on “Coping With Iran: Confrontation, Containment or Engagement?” My hope would be that these aren’t strictly incompatible choices, as in the contain and engage plan. And, clearly, preparing to contain is confrontation except insofar as we just understand “confrontation” to be code talk for “starting a war.” Seems like a good roster of people, folks from across the spectrum but weighted toward the sensible side of things.
