“NBC News reports on the bankrupt ‘Plan B’ options being considered by the Biden administration if nuclear talks in Vienna aren’t successful …. These options are grim because they are also futile and destructive. We need to understand that piling on more sanctions or attacking Iran’s facilities will accomplish nothing except to kill more Iranians and convince their government that it needs a deterrent. The ‘Plan B’ options being discussed are not serious options, because they stand no chance of preventing proliferation in Iran.” (11/23/21)
