"And it suggests that the president has the right strategy: intensified international pressure along with a willingness to negotiate a solution that serves Iranian interests, while ensuring that the world will never have to face a nuclear armed Iran." The tone is getting softer. Some weeks ago, the US and France both openly said that the world might have to prepare for a war against Iran. But now it's different. The Annapolis meeting might have played a role. As a German (nonetheless, I had no choice, blah...) I cannot claim to be a protector of Israel: This is part of the role of the US. An argument which I still want to maintain is the refusal of nuclear power. The idea that the earth we live on, risks to be poisoned again, like after Chernobyl, is unbearable. You had to fear radiation in food and the rain itself. Imprisonment can come through cultural realities, but also by physical ones. If the Iranians can do without nuclear power, this is a plus factor of their civilisation.
