Iran is not the Pandora’s box. The Middle East is and Iran is one element within that box that is vying with all the others in complex ways. Obama’s “accord” quite simply adds to Iran’s power and removes whatever hopes the others had that the outside world might restrain Iran. Hence, there is no doubt at all that the “accord” must intensify all of the complex strivings within the region. Just exactly how, remains to be seen.
