AIPAC To America: Negotiations With Iran Must Be Backed By Strength!Submitted by Trevor Lyman on Sat, 09/21/2013 - 10:30
A new memo from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee states that America should increase sanctions and seek to justify the possible use of force against Iran:
As world leaders gather in New York for the opening of the United Nations General Assembly, international powers are expected to renew talks soon with Iran about its nuclear program. Washington can improve the prospects of success for such talks by taking steps to expand sanctions against Iran and to enhance the credibility of the option to use force. The international community should only consider sanctions relief if Iran complies with United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions that require suspending its nuclear activities. Any such relief must be commensurate with the extent of Tehran’s actions.
