(USA Today) Jonah Goldberg - President Obama says he wants to bring Iran in out of the cold, to "break through (their) isolation." To be fair, Obama's goal is a good one. A civilized Iranian regime would presumably stop supporting Hamas in Gaza, Hizbullah in Lebanon, Houthis in Yemen, Bashar Assad in Syria and Shiite militants in Iraq. It'd even stop routinely calling for the destruction of Israel and "Death to America!" Who wouldn't want that? The question is: Is a new Iran possible?
