SSI Live 076 - Decertification of the Iranian Nuclear Deal — On 13 October, President Trump announced his intention not to certify Iran’s compliance with the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) and threatening to leave the nuclear deal altogether if it was not amended in various ways. Why did the President announce this? Meanwhile, there are reports that some of his senior advisors opposed this move -- what were their counterarguments? More broadly, what is the outlook with regard to Iran's nuclear program? To discuss these issues and more, SSI host Dr. John R. Deni sat down with the SSI's Middle East expert, Dr. Chris Bolan.

SSI Live 075 - Rotational Deployments vs. Forward Stationing — Continuing security challenges in Eastern Europe as well as saber rattling on the Korean Peninsula have raised questions once again about the capabilities, posture, and positioning of U.S. overseas forces. In this podcast, SSI Live host Dr. John R. Deni examines the reasons why the Army has become an increasing U.S.-based force, assesses the shift toward rotational peacetime deployments over the last several years, and offers a series of practical recommendations for returning balance to the Army's posture. This podcast is based on Dr. Deni's recent study on forward presence. Listen below or click here to download.

SSI Live 074 - The Trump Administration's New Afghanistan Strategy — On 21 August, President Trump announced a new strategy toward the conflict in Afghanistan, America's longest war. What's new about the strategy? Does a renewed focus on Pakistan, and the role it plays in Afghanistan, have any chance of succeeding? And how will the new approach toward the war affect broader U.S. objectives with regard to Afghanistan? The SSI's Dr. Chris Mason, author of The Strategic Lessons Unlearned from Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan, discusses these and related questions with SSI Live host Dr. John R. Deni.
