Tomorrow night Community Advocates and KPCC are presenting an important panel discussion on the topic of

What to Do About Iran?

We Invite you to a live taping of 89.3 KPCC-FM’s Award-Winning program, 

AirTalk with Larry Mantle


Negotiations with Western powers in Turkey, internal turmoil in Iran, the Stuxnet virus, harsher sanctions, tough talk from Prime Minister Netanyahu….the headlines continue. What should the West, America and Israel do about the looming threat of a nuclear Iran—-muscular military action, a “wait and see” approach, or a “learn-to-live with a nuclear Iran” approach?

These and other options will be discussed by a distinguished panel of experts.

Jim Walsh

of MIT is an expert on international security with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Security Studies Program. He is one of a handful of experts who has traveled to both Iran and North Korea for talks with officials about nuclear issues and has written articles on the Iran issue for The New York Times, The New York Review of Books and numerous other journals.
