U.S. policy research paper on promoting Regime changes in the Middle East

This is an interesting read, I stumbled upon it is actually about Iran and was written in 2009 by the Brookings Institute. This document is mostly about Iran, but Washington views Syria much on the same level as Iran and also it is seen as a steeping stone into Iran.

The document is titled:

Which Path to Persia?
Options for a New American
Strategy toward Iran
