The reviews are in and critics have spoken. My take is hats off to Secretary Kerry for good and wise Statecraft. Hats off to the diplomatic team in Iran and to the nations involved and their patience with privately held talks. The risks were weighed albeit known and talks delicately prepared. The alternative? Pandering to the status quo and zero relationship with Iran. So I commend bold leadership and mutual respect over hostility and conflict. That is diplomacy. Diplomacy so fragile it could break, don't let it break. Don't break the imaginable before it even has a chance. The timing is right and the semiotics are in place for progress and true courage is to have recognized this extraordinary potential. Can we not appreciate for a moment the amount of preparation having gone into these talks? As an addendum to this symbolic occasion of talks with Iran may I humbly make mention of missing American Robert Levinson since 2007. That his safe return would certainly undo much that is wrong with not having diplomatic ties.
