Iran and the West

Public Radio Tulsa – Iran has rarely been out of the headlines in recent years, and that's unlikely to change any time soon. The country's opposition movement is urging mass protests this Thursday, on the anniversary of the Islamic revolution; the controversy over Tehran's nuclear program continues to intensify; and there are signs Washington is losing patience with the idea of engaging with the Iranian authorities. So how should the US and its allies respond, if at all? Should there be talks, sanctions, or even a policy of regime change? Should the embattled Iranian opposition receive more support? Or would any outside interference backfire -- and would it be morally wrong anyway?

Join Lyse Doucet on BBC Newshour this Saturday for 'Iran and the West', a special half-hour program at 6:00 am on Public Radio 89.5 HD1 and 6:00 am, 2:00 pm, 3:00 pm on World Radio 88.7 HD3.
