    Trump brokered peace deals in the middle east that hadn't been achieved before. "Conventional" would imply something other than that.

    How did you feel about Trump meeting with Kim Jong Un with no requirements, and talking about them falling in love and exchanging love letters?

    Trump's impulsive policies brought peace across the region. Pretty good impulses.

    Delivery for Iran here. It appears to be one package of conventional policies from Joe Biden.

    Define peaceful. Yemen. Syria. Almost war with Iran that was effectively resolved through luck. Not exactly peaceful. And at any rate, you dodged the question. Why are you so eager for sanctions? Where's the evidence of their efficacy historically?

    Joe, Re Engage? LOL, the only thing Biden will be engaging IF he gets in, is going to be napping behind a locked door in the Oval Office...

    I for one will miss the days of Donald Trump cucking to MBS at every opportunity.

    Great friend! Great people!

    Problem with re-engaging Iran is that it provokes Israel and Saudi Arabia. Justifiably or not, they begin to feel prompted to act individually against Iran's interests, which ultimately causes more damage to the region's stability, than by having the United States absorb all the impact of such decisions.

    The U.S. ought to have some sort of a plan in place to avoid the adverse consequences of Israeli/Saudi insecurity.

    Not apologizing for those states or their mind-set, but it's just a matter of fact that they'll take matters into their own hands, if America starts making deals with Iran. Attempts at sabotage, funding insurrections, and taking the other state's citizens as hostages, will be inevitable. Anything to gain an advantage in a situation which is no longer clearly a matter of "Israel/Saudis good, Iran bad".
