William Quandt (Professor, University of Virginia; Former Member, National Security Council) expresses skepticism of grand strategies by referencing the Bush I/Clinton eras and the failed Iraq invasion of Bush II. He recommends a strategy of balancing and persuasion anchored by overcoming U.S.-Iranian estrangement, pursuing strategic partnership with Turkey, and dedicating more resources to navigating the rapid political changes underway in Egypt.
