Judge Iran by its deeds, not by one man’s words
Re: ‘Time for the olive branch’ (Metro, June 21-23)
Letter writer Nancy Wrenn’s letter falls for Iran’s “good cop, bad cop” routine.
Yes, Rouhani sounds a lot better than Ahmadinejad. But Khamenei still holds the real power in a regime that supports Hezbollah and Assad.
Iran has used talks as a stall tactic to prevent sanctions while continuing its nuclear development.
If Iran genuinely wants to improve relations with the West, it needs to prove that with actions, not words.
Our sanctions finally have some teeth, and they cannot be relaxed until we have proof that Iran has abandoned its non-peaceful nuclear intentions.
