IRAN: Appeasement would be a mistake

Re: “Deal is better than war or status quo” (letter, 8-23).

Iran has cheated on every deal and treaty it has entered into, a fact proudly alluded to by its own leadership. I’m sure that Britain and France had the same hope as they dealt with Hitler in the late 1930s. “Peace in our time” appeasement ultimately led to world war.

Iran by policy is dedicated to the destruction of Israel and the United States. Iran is a leading supporter of terrorism around the world. Any so-called experts are tantamount to a bunch of sheep who think they can make friends with the wolf.

We guard dogs (I served 30 years in the military) know better. A treaty now will only lead to a bigger, possibly nuclear, war later.
