Iran—One Year After the Disputed Election and Violent Crackdown
11-Jun-2010 (3 comments)

Three days before the anniversary of Iran’s controversial election, the United Nations Security Council imposed its fourth round of sanctions against the country’s nuclear program. In a Q&A, Karim Sadjadpour analyzes the changing political situation inside Iran and what the United States and major powers can do to support the opposition and contain Iran’s nuclear ambitions.

While leaders of Iran’s Green Movement will condemn the resolution, Sadjadpour explains that “sanctions could actually strengthen the opposition’s argument that Khamenei and Ahmadinejad’s inept diplomacy has earned Iran international disrepute and the country is in need of new leadership.”

the end result, as even the author himself professes to, is that there has to be military intervention if one wants to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.  hence surgical attaks to demoralize the regime leadership and ultimatley sweep them out of power.
