Iran does not pose a significant direct nuclear threat to the United States. The way forward is for a deal that allows them to enrich uranium under strict safeguards. Those that don't think this is possible only have one other option, that is war.
Iran's Khamenei says could accept fair nuclear compromise | Reuters
In a speech that still underlined his suspicions about Western nations that he characterized as "bullies", Khamenei backed Rouhani's negotiations with them and said any workable deal would mean both sides easing their demands.
"As the president said, negotiations mean reaching a common point. Therefore, the other party ... should not expect its illogical expectations to be materialized. This means that one side would not end up getting all it wants."
"I am for reaching a good settlement and the Iranian nation too will certainly not oppose any deal to uphold its dignity and integrity," Khamenei said, an apparent warning to hardliners that they might have to accept a deal with powers including the United States, commonly known in Iran as "the Great Satan".
