Six powers agree ‘first step’ nuclear deal with Iran

Quote:
Iran and six world powers reached a breakthrough agreement this morning in Geneva to curb Tehran’s atomic ambitions in exchange for limited sanctions relief, in a first step towards resolving a dangerous decade-old stand-off.

The deal between the Islamic state and the US, France, Germany, Britain, China and Russia was nailed down after more than four days of negotiations


heh real men do go to tehran.

cue neocon wailing in 5,4,3,2,1...

The Egyptians know that the brotherhood will spell the end of their tourist industry (billions), and they will end up like Afghanistan if Morsi is allowed back in power. Obama picked the wrong horse...again. Not to mention Iran's nukes. Morsi would have agreed to that.

Yes...and it is interesting to me that the Egyptian ambassador is always in the midst of things, ie: Benghazi.

YES.

Now that Iran has signed a deal with Obama they will be free to pursue peaceful nuclear purposes such as obliterating Israel and destroying us!

I really don't know why we won't just let the Free Market take care of this. At least let the Spectre of Social Responsibility have a go at it; for all this Smothering Government Intervention is really the slippery slope into the Toxic Mudpits of Hell. (Or so the clock on the mantlepiece said, with its hands up before its face...)

Republicans slam deal
Quote:
In tweets and official statements, House and Senate Republicans argued that the administration was appeasing a duplicitous enemy without securing enough concessions in return.

I thought that's what the NonCons liked most about the President?

Let's see

There is no difference between republicans and democrats ?

And Obama should leave Afghanistan but start bombing Iran ?

ObAma Is incompetent. Even though he appears to have achieved more to slow down Iran nuclear program and resolve the chemical weapons program and use in Syria.

C'mon, we all know that Bibi and the house Republicans know way more about this issue than the p5+1.

If a truce is ultimately negotiated how will we ever be able to ramp up the war machine and put folks back to work?

Indeed. We have to make sure the MIC lobbyists get their money's worth and military-heavy districts have jobs. coffee

Sen Chambliss said something to the effect that we have not sufficiently destroyed the evil rogue state with sanctions.

So should I conclude what they mean is, Iran should immediately surrender their monkey dog arse and become an American puppet state by installing Cheney as PM.

Something like that if you're a neocon or T-Tard.
