Neither U.N. sanctions nor diplomacy will advance freedom and democracy in Iran, end Iran's support for terrorist organizations, or stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. Because a peaceful democratic transformation of the Iranian government is in America's national security interests, the United States should focus its funding and public diplomacy efforts on supporting a national referendum on Iran's constitution.
