No returning to Iran’s totalitarian past

Payam Akhavan, Mitgründer des Iran Human Rights Documentation Centre, über die Vorzüge eines freien Irans:

Imagine a pragmatic and liberal Iran as the epicentre of an integrated Middle East, a common market stretching from Beirut to Baghdad, Damascus to Dubai, Tel Aviv to Tehran, the all-conquering antidote of interdependence to bridge the perennial Arab-Israeli and Sunni-Shia divides. While the immediate challenges are formidable and sobering, the heroic struggle for democracy in Iran should inspire a vision of a different and better future. In the 1930s, after all, who could have imagined the European Union? [Weiterlesen…]

The Case for “Regime Change”

Michael Rubin im Commentary Magazine:

Regime change is the only strategy, short of military strikes, that will deny Iran a nuclear bomb, and it is the only strategy that can end altogether the threat of a nuclear program under the control of radicals in the employ of the Islamic Republic. Military strikes would be effective in the short term, but would come at a tremendous cost in terms of blood, treasure, and blowback.
