  1. Thank you for your well-considered point-of-view piece. The problem is that Obama did exactly what you suggest, that the result was that Iran’s leadership greatly expanded its range of operations and power, threatening its own population and much of the middle east (with the ironic result of pushing together a number of Sunni countries with Israel into an awkward alliance).

    The danger with military action is that you can never predict its ultimate effect, but this is also true about the unwillingness to use military force (cf. Arthur Neville Chamberlain).

    The people of Iran deserve a better future.
