Morality First

Ray Takeyh, Council on Foreign Relations | November 6, 2009

The Obama administration needs to balance its approach towards Iran, by taking up its moral responsibilities. ++ Whilst the West has been placing the nuclear issue above all other concerns, Tehran has been establishing an "infrastructure for repression." ++ Ahmadinejad only sporadically agrees to discuss the nuclear issue, to shift the attention from his regimes' human rights abuses. ++ The US needs to make clear to Iran's hardliners that if they launch their much-advertised crackdown, the West will terminate all dialogue.
