U.S. considering full range of options on Iran

Graphic News

June 17, 2019 -- Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Sunday that the United States is "considering a full range of options" regarding escalating tensions with Iran, but emphasised international diplomacy over any possible new U.S. military response.

Despite hard-line factions in both Iran and the United States that would like to pursue confrontation, both countries will remain keen to avoid a major war with each other, according to U.S.-based intelligence firm Stratfor

Nevertheless, the risk of miscalculation and escalation will remain high, particularly given Iran's force dispositions and conflict strategy, as both countries ramp up their military preparations.

A military confrontation between the U.S. and Iran would have regional and global economic and energy consequences.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
