Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You

Breakthrough. Rouhani Tells Us What is on His Mind.

The latest from President Rouhani. The JCPOA strikes me as the most important issue on president Rouhani’s mind. It means that nuclear power is what this phone tag conversation is all about. There are many alternatives to nuclear power. Green technologies for instance is something which Germany is at the forefront of.  Germany is a part of the EU, and the EU is the most supportive of Iran after Russia and China of course.

The US is on a trajectory to exert maximum pressure on Iran and this is written on stone. This trajectory cannot be diverted because the US is ruled by congress, and congress is made up of dozens of stiff necked politicians.

An old professor of mine once said,”Man (people) can be very forgiving, but only if you treat them with honesty.”

Rouhani is being very honest. The conditions for talks in Iran is very unfavorable. There are carriers in their waters. Bases in their regions. Trickery in their politics. He does not trust the US.  But to take the reins and establish dialogue with the US can make the conditions more favorable.  It takes time and effort but “man can be very forgiving.”

Right now, there are many things that the US can do to lower the tension. The carriers can be pulled back. The bases can be decomissioned. The anti-Iranian propaganda campaigns can be dissolved. But these are merely tokens. What is required is friendship between Rouhani and Trump.

Likewise, there are many things that Iran can do to lower the tension. Tell the Generals to behave themselves. Stop burning American flags on TV. Enough with the “die capitalist pigs” rhetoric on social media. Because these are merely tokens and they raise tensions, and is counterproductive to Iran’s interests. What is required is simple diplomacy, not inflammatory banter.

Politicians can be stiff necked, but remember “man can be very forgiving.”
