Burns, Nicholas. "The Deal is Historic, but the US Must Now Act to contain Iran." Financial Times, July 14, 2015.
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.
