Burns, Nicholas. "The Deal is Historic, but the US Must Now Act to contain Iran." Financial Times, July 14, 2015.
Abstract/Preview
The nuclear deal reached in Vienna on Tuesday is the latest step in a decade-long struggle by the west to contain Iranian power in the Middle East. This is a sensible agreement and far preferable to an Iran unfettered and ever closer to a nuclear weapon. Its great advantage is to freeze Iran’s nuclear efforts for a decade to come.
