If the United States acts with ill intent and makes it difficult for Iran to receive the benefits it is due under the deal, then years of diplomacy will be undone and a zero-sum mentality will once again take hold between the two countries -- with disastrous consequences for the region.
Those who ideologically opposed the negotiations with Iran on the nuclear issue have been proven wrong. Diplomacy works and
Khamenei's defeat bodes well for Iran. After the crippling sanctions and the shadow of a possible war with the U.S. are lifted, Iran's economy will begin to improve and Western investments will begin to flow into the country. With an improved economy and the absence of a threat to Iran's national security, democratic groups inside the country will be able to raise their voice and demand lifting of the security environment that has pervaded Iran since the Green Movement of 2009-2011.

A deal to roll back and constrain Iran's nuclear program may come this week. Here is what you need to know about this historic agreement and its global implications.
HONG KONG -- My Iranian friend who has family in the U.S. told me, "you can drive the length and breadth of the U.S., but you will not find a single place with anything like the culture you will find just here at Imam Square. Why do they think we will bow to them?" U.S. and European negotiators will do well to remember these words of a young businessman and not those of a religious fanatic.
