For those who feared Iran might get a nuclear weapon, The international community blocked all of Iran’s pathways to a nuclear weapon and they did so without any violence. This agreement has been praised across the globe.

A recent article is “Iran: Trump’s Gift to the Hard-Liners“, New York Review of Books, Oct. 10, 2017.
