US tensions with Iran are ramping up with no clear plan in sight. Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, says that while Iran is acting belligerently, the US response is not helping.

If other parties to the Iran nuclear agreement don't work to ease sanctions pressures, Iran could walk away from the deal, as US President Donald Trump did one year ago. "The difference is that if Iran walks away from the nuclear deal, then it will restart all the aspects of the nuclear program that the deal had constrained," says Dina Esfandiary.
