“The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting”. Sun Tzu’s proverbial phrase expresses exactly the current US strategy towards the Islamic Republic of Iran. The “maximum pressure” tactic pursued by US National Security Advisor John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, demonstrates the attempt to weaken Iran with no collateral effects for the United States. The main goal of President Donald Trump is to bring Iran back to the negotiation table by reintroducing secondary sanctions and therefore sign a deal that is more acceptable to the current US administration.
