Iran on the brink: Anne Penketh, program director of BASIC


Many readers will fear further aggression aimed at Iran. It was cheering to read the level-headed comment on the British-American Security Information Council‘s website with its constructive focus:  

The key in the next few months will be to persuade Iranian leaders – who insist that Iran has only peaceful intentions and is not developing a weapon – from going to the brink. They must accept international controls aimed at guaranteeing the program’s civilian nature. The Obama administration should continue to work through its international coalition, using all the tools at its disposal short of military action which would be a “cure” far worse than the disease. 

We hope that diplomatic efforts to this end will be successful.
