Detente with Iran?
Posted by alanmirs on July 13, 2007
Of course, detente with Iran would require the United States to recognize Iranian pre-eminence in the Persian Gulf, which it did during the monarchy of Muhammad Riza Shah Pahlavi (1953-1978). Getting the Iranian ayatollahs to help police the Persian Gulf’s oil lifeline, rather than threaten it, wouldn’t be a bad deal at all
