Journalist and Newsmax contributor Judith Miller says efforts by the United States to reduce Iran's nuclear arsenal are working.

"If you step back and you look at everything that's happened, and you look at where we are in the Iranian [nuclear reduction] program, we're in much better shape than we were a year ago," Miller told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Story continues below video.



"The fact of the matter is," she said Tuesday, "they are well aware that Iran is under tremendous pressure and feels that it needs to do something both to shore up the Islamic Republic and to get the economy moving again to get rid of these [U.S. economic] sanctions."

Miller, a Middle East expert and adjunct fellow at the Manhattan Institute, said bombing Iran, as some think is necessary, would slow down its nuclear program for "about a year or, maximum, two, if we could do anything at all."

Instead, she argued, "you can get them to respond to the economic pressure that has, in the course of two administrations, been put on them to stop this program and suspend it.

"Now, we don't know that they're there yet. But what I do know is that they're willing to come to the table and try, because the Iranian people booted out the hardliners who were there and put a new group of people in charge."
