Iran for decades has followed the N Korea plan, "In this agreement" what a joke.

Here is how it's done, first you don't need a ****ing agreement. You tell Iran, you do exactly what we want, then a year latter after they have done what we want we make our first step in loosing sanctions. That is just how simple it is. Iran has played Obama for a fool.

Liberals - Tax, Borrow, Spend, and Give Free Stuff
Obama's legacy - National Debt / Credit Downgrade / Obamacare Failure / Economic Failure / Foreign Policy Failure / Liar of the Year Award / The Rise of ISIS
It would have been easier just to have posted that you don't think the deal lasts long enough.The deal valls for a 6 month break in advances of their nuclear program. That's long enough to re-provision and get their hands on some of their frozen cash, and in 6 months they'll give us the finger and pick up where they left off--if they actually halt progress.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
I've already read the BBC link and much more.
First, there is NO GOOD REASON for the construction of a light water reactor that DOESN'T USE MOX over a Boiling water reactor, as a first choice for nuclear power generation except the production of WEAPONS GRADE PLUTONIUM that's processed and removed from spent nuclear fuel rods.
Second, there is a push for existing reactors to switch over to MOX because it removes weapons grade plutonium from the world stock piles after Nuclear weapon decommissions and it's non-practical to remove highly enriched Plutonium from MOX waste.
Third, your'e taking the word of a rogue Theocratic dictatorship over common sense for some reason. I expect your motivation is political.
It would take a incredibly naive individual to assume that after years of unfettered uranium enrichment, they haven't achieved enough highly enriched uranium to build several weapons.
The average size of the plutonium-gallium alloy nuclear " PIT " of a WW2 era atomic weapon was a perfect sphere, 4 inches in diameter and with a weight of around 16 pounds.
Those " PIT's" were then used as Nuclear triggers to initiate the nuclei Fusion of the two Hydrogen Isotopes, Tritium and Deuterium in Multi stage Thermal weapon.
So, pardon if I chose not to take YOUR word or the word of a dictatorship that's been ignoring the rest of the world for years.

" If no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else ? "
[emphasis added by bubba]Implementation of the agreement was troubled from the start, but its key elements were being implemented until it effectively broke down in 2003.
now tell us, who exactly was the "libbo" president in 2003 who allowed the agreement to be ignored by the north koreans. it was your side which failed to assure NK lived up to the agreement ... an agreement which had been effective until the republican president allowed the north koreans to deviate from its compliance
you want to whine about Obama effecting a workable agreement which prevents the iranian development of nuclear weaponry, but you are remarkably silent about the republican predecessor who allowed the north koreans the opportunity to go nuclear
the hypocrisy of your posts match the ignorance found within them
