Iran was part of the "Axis of Evil" in 2002, yet now notice how the President is stressing diplomacy. "America will continue to rally the world to confront these threats." The President has noted before that America lacks leverage against the Iranian regime. Pursuing sanctions is also problematic because of Iran's potential to affect our oil markets. Diplomacy with a capital D is the only answer for now. Conservatives, I've been told, are looking for a harder line. The President is again encouraging revolt in Iran as he did last year. A similar tactic was pursued against Iraq.
