Sanctions against Iran
Editorial: President Donald Trump's reluctance to stay in the accord has nothing to do with reality and everything to do with campaign promises. This cynical stance will only diminish our country's standing in the world.
We say: Soon, we will see either a plan to keep nuclear weapons out of Iran's arsenal or a newly isolated Iran again racing to develop nuclear weapons.
I have been both saddened and mystified by the reaction from some quarters in Washington after the United States joined five other nations to make a deal with Iran that would begin to curtail its ability to make nuclear weapons. It's a six-month deal, hopefully a step toward a long-range agreement.
