Geneva Iranian Accords

Reader comment on item: The Geneva Agreement with Iran: A Foreign Policy Disaster

Submitted by Gunther H. Sciff (United States), Nov 26, 2013 at 18:25

I am surprised that your article - like the careless Press - fails to give credit to the fact that a numberof powerful nations must have agreed to the temporary pact with Iran, unlike Chamberlain who alone represented the sole naion that negotiated the pact with Hitler. I do not know at this point what the text of the agreement is, but 6 months of limited reduction of the sanctions - again I do not know what was sanctioons were eased, or the extent of the easing but a 6 months interlude instead of the war that apparently is Israel's only suggestion, can be safely postponed, rather than leaving armed conflict the only solution. Iran has been working on its 'atom tipped missile' for a number years, so 6 months of reduced activity seems to me probablyi a viable deal.

Daniel Pipes replies:

actually, you are wrong about Munich, for the French prime minister was there along with the British one. See the commemorative picture athttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Bundesarchiv_Bild_183-R69173,_M%C3%BCnchener_Abkommen,_Staatschefs.jpg
