The 2008 Tour for Diplomacy with Iran
Diplomacy Works—Military Threats Don't
The United States continues to deploy rhetoric of confrontation against Iran, including the option of military force. Americans are being told that Iran is on the brink of developing nuclear weapons, supports terrorism, is helping to kill American soldiers in Iraq, and is determined to destroy Israel. Therefore, the reasoning goes, we must be prepared to attack Iran.
Stephen Kinzer, the award winning author and former foreign correspondent for the New York Times rejects this argument. He, along with a diverse group of other experts on Iran, Congressional leaders and military experts, traveled across the country in 2008 to counter the message from Washington and to present options for a more rational foreign policy towards Iran.
