    Iranian official on nuke deal: 'We did not agree to dismantle anything'

    Iran on nuke deal: 'We did not agree to dismantle anything' - CNN.com

    (CNN) -- Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif insisted Wednesday that the Obama administration mischaracterizes concessions by his side in the six-month nuclear deal with Iran, telling CNN in an exclusive interview that "we did not agree to dismantle anything."
    Zarif told CNN Chief National Security Correspondent Jim Sciutto that terminology used by the White House to describe the agreement differed from the text agreed to by Iran and the other countries in the talks -- the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany.
    "The White House version both underplays the concessions and overplays Iranian commitments" under the agreement that took effect Monday, Zarif said in Davos, Switzerland, where he was attending the World Economic Forum.
    Israel was right. It looks like force is the only thing these ****ers respect. I predict there's going to be a war eventually. Obama either lied to us, or is a fool.

    Progress has been made, he said, but "it's yet too early to talk about trust."
    Obama fed us a bunch of hooey.

    No, probably closer to the truth.

    Eh, you just wanna see it that way. I'm all for any peaceful options on the table. A war should always be the last resort.

    True, but people of the ME seem to be very treacherous, and sometimes I worry that people like Kerry are too eager to claim victory by making foolish concessions. Reagan adopted a Russian saying, "Trust but verify". Never completely trust these bastards, because they've seen the North Koreans get away with things.

    I'm pretty sure the deal lets us check out the progress whenever we want. How is that not "trusting but verifying?"

    After all that business with Saddam Hussein jerking the inspectors around, I don't believe any deal with any of those assholes can be trusted.

    I'm sure those inspections will follow the same methodology as sports drug testing: really super duper random..... so long as you give them a 6 month advanced notice.

    Unless they say what you want to hear, apparently...

    I wonder if you'll realize what I'm talking about.

    Would you trust an American?

    I mean you've met them!
