Iran: WWRRD?


President Ronald Reagan with Caspar Weinberger, George Shultz, Ed Meese, and Don Regan discussing the President's remarks on the Iran-Contra affair, Oval Office

As I hear reports about the new deal with Iran regarding its nuclear program, I have decided to hold it to the standards that conservatives apparently use these days: WWRRD.

As dealings with Iran go, the answer would be: sell the Iranian government weapons in violation of an embargo, in order to illegally fund Central American terrorists trying to overthrow a democratically elected government.

That said, Reagan set a very low bar for U.S. foreign policy with the states on the Persian Gulf and in Mediterranean Asia: Terrorist attack on a Marine barracks in Lebanon? Cut and run. What to do about Saddam Hussein? Sell him chemical weapons, obviously.

Perhaps this new approach is better.
