I also think of three countries in relation to the future of Russia: China, India, and Iran.

The North Koreans have given up nothing.
We lost to the Russians and Bashir in Syria
ISIS has gone from Iraq and Syria but it is popping up in many other places.
The Iran deal is gone but Iran is getting more aggressive and they have not collapsed yet. A war with them would be bad. Very bad. They are ten times that foe that Iraq was. But not standing up to their provocations also looks bad and weak. A lose lose scenario....

... new proactive president in the White House have slowly been eclipsed by a sense of confusion, given United States behavior that shows little consistency and no clear strategic objectives. President Obama, apart from striving for an agreement with Iran, limited his involvement in the Middle East, but was forced to direct new attention to the region due to the Islamic State challenge.

..., and should be based at home. There is a geographic perspective missing from US foreign and national security policy. The President is allowing too much of his time to be consumed by a focus on distant enemies who are either not really our enemy (Iran) or not our problem (North Korea). Then there are the near “enemies” so absurd as to defy intelligent belief – Cuba and Venezuela. Below is my view of five priorities in national policy – the Home Front above all else, followed by the Americas ...

At this point of time, one of the greatest challenges which India faces, however, is its relations with Iran. Post the signing of the P5+1 signed Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action(JCPOA) commonly known as Iran nuclear deal, New Delhi has sought to strengthen its economic and strategic ties with Tehran.
