    Iranians See Victory, Hope for New Image in Nuclear Agreement

    I am very happy to hear that the people of Iran are enthusiastic about the nuclear agreement that has been reached. I really, really hope this works out well for them. It is a much needed chance for them and I hope they take advantage of this historic opportunity!

    Iranians See Victory, Hope for New Image in Nuclear Agreement

    Street celebrations in Tehran follow announcement


    Iranians greeted the news of an agreement with world powers on its nuclear program Thursday night with street celebrations and expressions of hope about their country’s political role and economic engagement with the rest of the world.

    Families drove along Valiasr Street in central Tehran honking, flashing headlights and playing loud music into the early hours of Friday. A group of young men blockaded one street and chanted “Freedom, only freedom!”

    Others danced to Iranian music, shot off fireworks and shouted praise for Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, who negotiated the framework with the U.S. and five other countries: “Zarif! Zarif is the one who beats the U.S.!”

    Vesal Hashemzadeh, a 34-year-old beautician, said she felt proud after hearing the news.

    “Iran’s name was associated with backwardness, and it now has a good reputation,” Ms. Hashemzadeh said.

    The preliminary deal, details of which remain to be worked out before a June 30 deadline, drew praise from moderate and conservative Iranian politicians.

    The framework represents the “win-win result” that Iran had in mind, said Hamid Reza Taraghi, head of international affairs at the conservative Islamic Coalition Party.

    “For the Westerners, Iran’s nuclear activities have been limited to some extent, and the Islamic republic proved its righteousness and continues its activities,” Mr. Taraghi said. “Annulment of the sanctions is a big victory for the Islamic republic. Of course, we expected much more, but it’s still satisfactory.”

    There isn't any agreement. The Iranians disavowed it within hours of it's announcement by claiming that the US was lying about it.

    The people may be dancing in Tehran, but even this tentative framework agreement will be difficult to sell to the regime hard-liners.

    They have agreed on a framework. The details have to be hammered out, but the framework of a final agreement is there.

    That means nothing. Iran is still insisting on immediate sanctions relief and continued use of centrifuges. Unless the US completely caves and goes back on everything they have said there will be no final agreement.

    The appearance of progress is illusory. The hope for progress is naive beyond stupidity.
