A glimmer of hope has emerged in dealing with Iranian plans to develop their nuclear energy program. Brazilian President Luiz Lula da Silva, together with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu have been meeting in Tehran with Iranian leaders for a compromise solution that allows Iran to continue developing nuclear energy without becoming involved in building a nuclear bomb. A possible solution would witness Iran swapping its low-enriched-uranium (LEU) for higher grade uranium in a neutral nation like Turkey instead of adhering to UN demands that it be completed in a nation they identify.
America must learn to draw upon emerging world powers like Brazil or Turkey in order to resolve diplomatic problems. The USA for all too long insists any solution must go through an American decision. Step back, take a deep breath, and allow Brazil or Turkey or whoever serve as the mediator.
