- Iran Has Changed, But for the Worse – Heshmat Alavi
The pro-Iran engagement camp has long advocated that a nuclear agreement with Iran would lead to numerous changes in the regime. More than one year down this road, the changes in Iran are nothing to boast about. Tehran continues its atrocious executions, human rights violations and ongoing oppression of ordinary citizens inside the country. And the mullahs have continued their mantra of exporting “Islamic Revolution” throughout the Middle East, as we are unfortunately witnessing so vividly today in Syria.
The change the world has witnessed in Iran’s pursuit of a vast weapons-of-mass-destruction program is its bold new approach in efforts to master ballistic missiles. Iran’s missile tests have continued to violate UN Security Council resolutions, yet there has been hardly any serious global response. (Forbes)
