Why does the author try to put all of the issues concerning Iran into the nuclear weapon deal? Sanctions that apply to other issues remain in effect and will be useful in pressuring Iran on them. The sanctions placed on Iran because of their nuclear program will be removed as the country moves through the steps necessary to implement the agreement. If Iran fails to live up to the agreement the sanctions come back on and the whole issue has to be addressed once again. All other issues have to be dealt with as they would be with any other country. Get over it. The agreement cannot be used to pressure Iran and Iran cannot use noncompliance as a way to force other issues without incurring harsh reactions.
