Biden’s vowed US-Iran detente won’t come easy

My quotes at Asia Times: “’Iran is incredibly demonized in the US. Take the statement from Senator Susan Collins who initially thought the siege on the Capitol building was being orchestrated by the Iranians. She’s a prime example of how so many Americans have internalized an anti-Iran worldview,’ said Pouya Alimagham, a lecturer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s department of history.

‘As such, Biden will have to expend political capital to resurrect the Iran nuclear deal. He will have to expend even more if a hardline Iranian leader wins the presidency in 2021. Thus, time is of the essence, but it can be done if both have the will to do it,’ he added.”
