MEMO: Iran a Normal State - Benefits to US Interests


MEMORANDUM: Iran a Normal State - Benefits to US Interests


Historical Context:

After the fall of the USSR, Iran became the US' nemesis.

What would happen if Iran were to become a normal state?

Negative:

Likely there would be some residual 'revolutionary' behavior such as arms shipments to people we might not want to have guns.

Positive:

Iran's intellectual class would revert to their 3,000 year old Persian roots and they would contribute to the global fabric in new and exciting ways.

Overview:

Generally, it is in everyone's best interests for all nations to be happy and healthy.
