    Iran has neutralized most of its stockpile of higher-grade enriched uranium that could be turned quickly into the core of a nuclear weapon, the U.N. nuclear agency said Friday, leaving the country with only about a fifth of what it would need for such a purpose.

    The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said in a in a quarterly report that Iran now has less than 90 pounds of the material.

    The report also said Tehran was meeting all other obligations under an agreement reached four months ago in Geneva that serves as a prelude to a comprehensive deal now being negotiated.

    The findings are likely to be welcomed by the six powers trying to negotiate an end to the decade-old dispute over Iran's nuclear program. Iran has consistently denied any interest in obtaining atomic weapons, saying it is only interested in civilian nuclear power, something allowed under the terms of the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).


    Looks like diplomacy is working quite well. McCain probably haz a sad.

    Thanks, Obama!
    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.

    No one says Iran DOESNT get credit, of course.

    Sorry Three. My point was that there's plenty of criticism of Iran around here, then you put up a post like this and get zero responses!

    Well, that might be because no one likes to hear good news, especially when it deprives them a chance to dump on the President.

    When the Iranian government is more cooperative than the GOP, it is difficult for them to point at the president.

    Because Neocons love it when the masses are afraid of Iran...it allows them to justify maintaining the U.S. Empire and the military industrial complex.

    Yeah, you're right, it was a rhetorical question.

    Now wait a minute.

    I thought Iran Nuclear ambitions were for peaceful purposes only ? You know, for their new power plants.

    Something tells me they're pulling the wool over the eyes of anyone who's willing to be manipulated.

    It's an IAEA report, not Iran's word on the deal.
