Is the Biden administration preparing for the wrong kind of war with Iran?

No, the Biden administration is pursuing a diplomatic approach to managing U.S. relations with Iran. President Biden has stated that his goal is to return to compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), also known as the Iran nuclear deal, as a first step toward a broader dialogue with Iran. This diplomatic approach is a stark contrast to the approach of the Trump administration, which focused on a maximum pressure campaign of economic sanctions and threats of military confrontation.
