Why Iran Won't Capitulate

Reza Marashi | Posted 05.16.2015 | Politics
Reza Marashi

Part of the reason why opponents to a nuclear deal with Iran are so bewildered by President Barack Obama's diplomacy is because their belief that Iran can be forced to capitulate. They adhere to a George W. Bush administration-era argument: If the U.S. only were to ramp up pressure, it can dictate the terms of the deal instead of having to agree to a compromise. Nothing could be further from the truth. This argument is as reckless as it is disproven. In fact, the reason the Obama administration abandoned this path was because it realized that insisting on Iranian capitulation was more likely to lead to war than to victory.

Why This Is The Right Time To Cooperate With Iran

Admiral Jim Stavridis (Ret.) | Posted 09.27.2014 | World
Admiral Jim Stavridis (Ret.)

We do not need to become an "ally" of Iran, but we should recognize that we will need to provide military support to the Iraqi government in the time ahead and, indeed, our special forces are already on the ground there. Iran will do the same. We will therefore have U.S. security activities alongside those of Iran in the Iraqi national battlespace. We should at least discuss the situation, and at a minimum, de-conflict our activities, from special forces advisors to airstrikes.

It would be great if we could push Iran in a more democratic direction, and have diplomacy address far more than the nuclear issue. But here is why the pretty language is deceiving. We have tried this before and it didn't lead to democracy. It led to war. Remember Iraq?

A Lull in the Iranian Crisis?

Stephen Schlesinger

Ever since last year's U.S. presidential election race ended, the much-discussed concerns over Iran's nuclear build-up have vanished from the national debate. A sudden shroud over Iran, however, does not mean that the dispute is going to go away. The Iranian spectre will pop up again in unexpected ways.

Obama's Second Chance to Engage Iran

Michael Hughes | Posted 01.15.2013 | World
Michael Hughes

Although forging a settlement will require both sides to muster a significant amount of political courage, it is well worth the risk. Obama's reelection should remove some political constraints, yet domestic resistance within the U.S. and Iran could still impede rapprochement.
