Reform and Sanctions in Iran

In light of Monday’s decision by the British Parliament to remove the People’s Mujahedeen of Iran (MEK) from its list of banned terrorist organizations, Amir Taheri in the Wall Street Journal looks at the implications of the decision and its possible impact on reform in Iran.

On another Iran related note, Olivier Guitta skeptically examines the impact of international sanctions against Iran, given its ability to lessen their impact. Additionally, Richard Perle criticizes Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice’s “born-again multilateralism” and claims that multilateralism has failed to deter Iran significantly.
