U.S. Should Engage Iran

August 6, 2010
Author: Jeff Patterson, DO

The United States should engage Iran.  Threats of military confrontation will further isolate Iran and thus increase threats to U.S. interests in the region.
 
A military attack on Iranian nuclear facilities will be likely to have locally devastating effects including the possible release of radiation as well as possible unintended and unforeseen consequences with regard to retaliation, economic disruption and almost certainly a further hardening of attitudes on both sides possibly leading to broader war.
 
We must seize the opportunity to resolve differences with Iran through diplomatic engagement.
