March 21 is the Persian New Year. I’ve been to Iran – before the revolution when I was knee-high to a grasshopper – and remember it fondly. I’d love to be able to go again someday. I’d like to see the Blue Mosque in Isfahan, and that mosque in Shiraz with all the mirror tiling inside. And to spend a day in the ruins of Persepolis again… WOW!
So from me to you… HAPPY NOWRUZ!
I’ve deliberately tried to avoid overt politics on this blog; it’s purpose is career-related, not political. But… this deal with Iran, if not stopped, will result in war. Whether it is Israel (and possibly allies-of-convenience like Saudi Arabia and Egypt) attacking Iran to try and knock Iran’s program back, or a successful attack on Israel or America – like this scenario which Iran has already practiced – there will be war. And a war that will come regardless of agreements.

I’ve been here… it’s a mosque in Shiraz, Iran, whose interior is tiled in mirror. I have dim memories of being inside a giant diamond. (Also near Shiraz is Persepolis, Persia’s capital before Alexander sacked it. Another place to see again.)
