From the beginning of the simulation when the French embassy was attacked, my partner and I’s main priority was the French people in the embassy. The main goal that we set for ourselves was to ensure that the hostages inside the French Embassy were removed from the hostile environment. Because of this, we were not able to support aggressive and hard-line policies that some NSC groups suggested such as harsher sanctions against Iran and bombing the Hezbollah base in Lebanon because we did not want to risk losing Iran’s cooperation.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
