It is closer to the truth to say the real debate about the Iran nuclear accord is just beginning.Already, significant differences are emerging in how the United States and Iranian sides are representing what was negotiated.The most difficult might be the timing of when various economic sanctions are to be removed – the issue of greatest concern to Iran.The two main uncertainties involve Iran and the U.S. So-called hard-liners in Iran will undoubtedly object to an agreement with the "Great Satan" that places limits on their country's nuclear ambitions.There is widespread and understandable concern about leaving Iran with any nuclear capabilities, about the adequacy of provisions for monitoring and inspection, and about what will happen in 10, 15 or 25 years when various limits on Iran expire.The fifth concern stems not so much from the accord as from everything else about Iran's foreign and defense policies. The agreement is only about Iran's nuclear activities. Iran is a would-be imperial power that seeks regional primacy.
A distracted America is one less likely to stabilize the world
Just ‘showing up’ is 80 percent of foreign policy success
For a sense of Putin’s actions grasp their long-term implications
