The Limits of Diplomacy: Why a "Better Iran Deal" may not be Possible
Read my latest in the Jerusalem Post.
Although the emerging Iran deal is by no means a "good deal" nor will it "solve" the Iranian problem, as the White House claims, a "better deal" may not be possible for two main reasons: Iran's economy was stronger and more resilient than most think; and more worryingly the international community was not willing to cooperate with the sanctions' regime much longer, especially since the deal on the table achieved at least a delay in Iran's nuclear aspirations. Most countries in the West recognize that Iran is a radical country that supports terror. But since it only threatens Israel now and not them directly, they have no problem taking this deal so they can get back to business with Iran.
