Political science professor Mark Gasiorowski is an expert in international relations, the Middle East, foreign policy and US-Iran relations. He is available to discuss President Trump's tweet threatening Iran.

“He (Trump) may be trying to divert attention from the many problems he had in foreign-policy last week. The Bush administration looked carefully into what a US military attack on Iran would look like and what the Iranian reaction would be. They soon decided it would not be a good idea. The military balance has not changed substantially since that time. So President Trump had better think carefully before he goes beyond words with this."
