Personally, I would cease negotiating with the Iranians at all until they start acting likes adults and show at least a modicum of common sense. We look rather stupid sitting at the table with them while they are still shouting "Death to America" and threatening to wipe Israel off the map. The only type of negotiations the rogue terrorist state of Iran understands or takes seriously are serious economic sanctions and threats of force. At this point they are merely playing the west for fools....biding for more time and a lightening of sanctions for basically nothing in return.I would personally place a lot less emphasis on the trust part when dealing with Iranians. Either way, it is a historically useless and silly thing to evoke in the current negotiations.
With all due respect, I do not recognize you as speaking for most Americans. over or under the age of 50. And I think the only chance in hell that Hillary will be president is if the GOP nominates another old fart RINO to run against her. And even then, Hillary is not a sure thing. She lacks the campaign skills, the charisma, and the mental health to make a good run for president. Sniper fire in Bosnia indeed!With all due respect, these sound like things that are probably quite important to you and for pandering to like minded people - but not to most Americans, who statistically do not share your opinions or concerns. In fact, these items routinely rank near the bottom of the list of important things for voters (hint hint.... the economy), and the combination of xenophobia, Strangelovian UN conspiracism and Evangelical-based social laws are rather off-putting to the voters under age 50 that will almost certainly put Hillary in the White House if that focus does not change.

Nuclear talks seem to miss June 30 deadline
They say it will only be a couple deals past the June 30th deadline will either a deal or no final deal will be announced. Im gonna keep my fingers crossed for a deal.

really?Britain says no Iran deal 'better than a bad deal'
then there will be two results:
1. continued sanctions; and
2. continued nuclear development without the west having an opportunity to curb/monitor those developments*
*unless the west proposes to go to war. are we willing to incur the very substantial costs of a war in iran, recognizing that anything but a toppling of the government will only delay the development of a nuclear capacity ... if iran truly seeks that objective. a war would assure it
do we want a proxy war with the russians in the background, supplying arms and intelligence ... and a nuclear umbrella to iran? especially when the iranians are very pro-western and well educated with respect to the balance of the region. why push them into putin's sphere of influence
such a war would also drive up the price of oil. that would not be a good thing for a fragile world economy on the mend
let's examine the house of saud's self interests. that sunni state certainly does not want a shiite adversary to acquire nuclear weapons capacity. it would have to do the same ... would we then oppose such a development?
and certainly, during this time of surplus oil on the international market, the saudis must oppose the prospect that the international embargo against iran would be ended, allowing freshly available iranian oil to push the price of oil even lower, while also acquiring a significant portion of saudi arabia's market share
why would iran want nuclear arms? to establish parity with an always threatening nuclear equipped israel. require israel to relinquish its nuclear arsenal and the justification for iran's nuclear weapons development evaporates. of course, israel enjoys its present hegemony in the region and will not willingly relinquish it. only the USA has the means to effect that change. that is the negotiation we should now be pursuing
