Obama used television to address the people and government of Iran. ++ The President invited Iran into the “community of nations” but reminded them that rights come with responsibilities. ++ Iran replied by saying that actions speak louder than words. ++ Given a tempestuous bilateral relation such words are unlikely to make a breakthrough. ++ Obama can foster some diplomatic ties by “suspend[ing] U.N. sanctions in exchange for Iranian implementation of the Additional Protocol” and thus, opening the window of opportunity.
