Obama: Without Iran deal, we risk more war

msnbc.com — President Barack Obama on Wednesday described the historic deal to curb Iran's nuclear program as the best way to make the world safer and more secure, and challenged critics at home and abroad to offer an alternative that doesn't mean war.

On Iran, no need to speculate about the alternative. We’ve already lived it.

msnbc.com — What if the Iran deal had taken place in 2002, right after the country's clandestine but nascent nuclear program had begun? In announcing an historic agreement, President Obama asked skeptics to consider the alternative. Without a nuclear deal, "Iran could produce, operate and test more and more centrifuges," he said.

Past Arguments Don't Square With Current Iran Policy

washingtonpost.com — Washington Post Staff WriterSunday, March 27, 2005; Page A15 Lacking direct evidence, Bush administration officials argue that Iran's nuclear program must be a cover for bomb-making. Vice President Cheney recently said, "They're already sitting on an awful lot of oil and gas. Nobody can figure why they need nuclear as well to generate energy."

On Iran: 10 wasted years, one big day

msnbc.com — The sad truth of Sunday's nuclear agreement with Iran is that it could have come 10 years earlier and with far fewer costs. It took a Mideast war, an accelerating nuclear program, a crisis with U.N. inspectors and crippling sanctions before the sides started talking.

Is Iran trolling Tom Cotton?

msnbc.com — Less than 24 hours after Republican Sen. Tom Cotton shared an insanely adorable photo of his just-born son Gabriel, snug in that wide-striped hospital-issued swaddle cloth, the Arkansas lawmaker went on an epic Twitter rant aimed at the Iranian foreign minister. For Cotton, there is simply nothing that will keep him from the Iran debate.

For Iran, 'snap back' clause goes both ways

msnbc.com — Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif sought to turn the tables Wednesday as negotiations for a nuclear accord were set to resume, saying Congress should be more concerned about what could happen if the United States failed to implement its obligations rather than focusing on a possible Iranian failure.
