    In Nuclear Talks, Iran Seeks to Avoid Specifics

    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/25/wo...-one.html?_r=1

    "If an agreement to limit Iran’s nuclear capability is reached by deadline in the next seven days, one thing may be missing: an actual written accord, signed by the Iranians."

    An agreement that wouldn't be worth the paper it's written on...

    I still hold out hope that the President isn't so stupid that he would accept such an agreement.

    Iran does not want to come clean on their intentions and be specific in a "deal?" I'm completely shocked, anyone else?

    Ah, the black and white world of Deuce. Not wanting the US to tie itself to an unenforceable diplomatic disaster is a call to bomb things? Sure, Deuce, sure....

    Wow...

    One little wrinkle of objection to the negotiations and you figure war is next.

    Does that come from knowing well your president and his real intentions, or fear that we are all right and you and he are wrong, that now that he's sold the farm war is inevitable?

    You know don't you that congress cannot wage war...only the president?

    Please. Don't act like the right wingers here are arguing from a point of nuance. No details of anything, but you already know it's a disaster. Sure, jm, sure.

    Hah, I am quoting a New York Times article, Deuce. Are you saying I am not allowed to dislike the deal details as reported by the New York Times? Did I not say I hope Obama isn't as stupid as the NYT article depicts?

    This was linked in DP earlier today. If true, I really do not see how an accord could be reached in the near future.

    And remember, we are rewarding Iran with $12 billion dollars for this. We are dolling it out in monthly payments until June. Iran isn't interested in anything but drawing out the negotiations until we have finished paying them, at which point they will break off talks.

    They are working from the North Korean playbook.

    It frightens me that you have to explain that to them.
