ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the differences in the international relations of Germany and the U.S. with Iran. Although the governments of Germany and the U.S. have assured each other that their objectives in southwest Asia are the same, to keep Iran from developing nuclear weapons, supporting terrorism, and disrupting the Arab-Israeli peace process, they differ radically on which means to use. The U.S. has tried to isolate Iran diplomatically and strangle its economy. On the other hand, Germany and Europe favor engagement built around a multibillion-dollar trade and investment relationship. The arguments over how to handle Iran are a continuation of a long-standing transatlantic debate about trading with the enemy.
