US-Iranian Military Tensions or Détente?

In this short interview, Dr. Afsah answers questions about the prevailing view of President Rouhani as a moderate, the genuineness of the announced change in the relationship with the West, and what to make of countervailing statements indicating resistance to that change in the armed forces, notably recent naval provocations along the US coast, declarations of new missile tests and of the army’s readiness to engage in defensive war in case of armed attack following failed nuclear talks.
