Njdeh Asisian

Njdeh (Nick) Asisian is an Armenian Iranian who came to the US during the Iranian revolution.  He has worked as a researcher and analyst for the Department of Defense over the past decade.  He is currently a researcher and scenario development advisor for the Army's Mission Command Training Program.  He has a very strong educational background in Eurasian and Middle East history, politics, and defense/security issues, as well as International Law.

Political dissent smacks of religious transgression.  For these and other reasons, Iran should not be expected to survive in the long term in its current theocratic–run political system.

The relationship between Russia and Iran since the collapse of the Soviet Union forms a necessary and essential aspect of international relations.
