A new president has been elected in Iran and his initial comments offer both hope and uncertainty. He insists “the Syrian crisis must be resolved by the people of Syria. We are against terrorism, civil war and foreign internvention.” OK, we agree. I assume this means Russia and Iran will cease providing arms and planes and troops to assist President Assad. How can any sane person oppose allowing the people of Syria to determine their future. This would require a free election. Anyone in Iran for that idea?
Newly elected Hassabn Rowhani emphasized his desire for resolution of the conflict over nuclear weapons with western nations. There is a solution. Iran is supported in its efforts to develop a nuclear industry and it agrees not to build atomic weapons. It IS time to end threats and engage in negotiations based on the right of Iran to have a nuclear industry.
