    At least that story would make sense given their recent history.

    Don't look like.....they will get Iran to commit to any deal here.


    Iran pushes back against US demands at nuke talks.....

    Iran pushed back Wednesday against U.S. demands for concessions at nuclear talks, declaring it would never "kneel" over what curbs Tehran must accept to win an end to the sanctions choking its economy.

    Both Iran and the six world powers it is negotiating with want an accord by July 20. But they parted last month without significant progress — and came to the table Wednesday with demands that the other side blink first.

    "We have never bowed down to imposition and we will not accept it in this round of talks either," Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told reporters in Vienna.
    The negotiators now are working on a draft deal they started drawing up in June. Zarif described that document back then as having more blank sections than text.....snip~

    Although Iran isn't saying they won't make any deal, just not the one offered that they consider lopsided.

    I don't blame them, looking around the region, the things the US has forced upon governments by hook or by crook, I mean by economic or military war, have only encouraged chaos and instability.

    I went looking since I was curious. The report really didn't tell me how they confirmed the neutralization or what the neutralization process was. I did find this passage from the report interesting.

    J. Additional Protocol
    61. Contrary to the relevant resolutions of the Board of Governors and the Security Council, Iran is
    not implementing its Additional Protocol. The Agency will not be in a position to provide credible
    assurance about the absence of undeclared nuclear material and activities in Iran unless and until Iran
    provides the necessary cooperation with the Agency, including by implementing its Additional
    Protocol.61
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    I believe 'pushing back' is precisely what the concept of talks are for.

    It's basic negotiation. You really can't set up talks, put a proposal on the table, and then have the other side 'push back', leading you to claim they they won't negotiate.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
