We don’t talk about nuclear war much anymore, but the threat still exists. One glitch in Russia’s warning system, or ours, and the world is toast. “When you’re not communicating, accidents are more likely. When you’re not communicating, suspicions are more difficult to deal with,” Nunn said.
On September 9, 2015, the Center for International Strategy, Technology, and Policy (CISTP) hosted a panel discussion entitled, “Iran Nuclear Deal: Triumph of Diplomacy or Dangerous Precedent.” The panelist reviewed key technical details of the recent JPCOA, as well as discussed critically drivers for the multilateral nuclear deal and Iran’s nuclear ambitions, as well as implications of the deal moving forward. Discussants included Professor Emeritus John Garver, Associate Professor Margaret Kosal, Assistant Professor Larry Rubin, Assistant Professor Jarrod Hayes, and Colonel Lonnie Carlson, Ph.D., a visiting fellow from the Army War College, all from the Sam Nunn School; and Professor Nolan Hertel from the School of Nuclear and Radiological Engineering. The panel was moderated by Nunn School Professor and CISTP Co-Director, Adam Stulberg.
Dr. Lawrence Rubin is quoted in the article on the Vice website discussing that Egypt was said to have sent as many as 800 troops to Yemen along with accompanying tanks and equipment — though that's been denied by the Saudis — shortly after Qatar reportedly sent 1,000 soldiers of its own to the country. The infusion of boots is meant to bolster a Saudi-led campaign, launched in March, to defeat Shia Houthi rebels who have seized much of the country.
