Mehrzad BoroujerdiIn his article titled "The U.S. and Iran Are Stirring a Recipe for Conflict," published in U.S. News & World Report, Professor Mehrzad Boroujerdi illustrates Iran’s point of view concerning the escalating tension with the U.S. "If the White House game plan was based on the premise that imposing more robust sanctions would cause a popular uprising by the Iranian people to bring down the regime, it badly miscalculated," writes Boroujerdi. "Instead, the nuclear withdrawal convinced Tehran that ill will should beget ill will."

Boroujerdi was also quoted in the ThinkProgress article "Asked about war with Iran, Trump says ‘I don’t do exit strategies’" and the Washington Times article "Trump warns Iran of 'obliteration' over any more attacks on U.S. military."
