I actually think that the lack of a deal now, means violent action from Israel in the next six months is more likely (less than 50% but definitely stronger).
    We'll see what happens. Would you rather both sides or our sides just calls the talks off?
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    If the U.S. was serious about getting a substantive deal we would ratchet up the sanctions. Give Iran some motivation to get a deal done.

    I don't know how long the sanctions have been in place, but one thing is for sure, Iran was going full speed ahead with them. Besides with sanctions to work other countries have to go along and enforce them to the hilt. That wasn't being done. Other countries always put their own economic interests first, no one can blame them for that. I am not sure sanctions have ever worked. Most of the time they just make life tougher on the little people while the elite continue to live in luxury.

    A couple of things. Sanctions are just about the only peaceful leverage we have with Iran. Next, sanctions hardly ever work when you talk about stuff that gets imported into a country. However the power of these sanctions was on their exporting of oil, of which there is now a glut so other producers would be happy to pick up the slack and on their banks as all oil transactions are made in dollars.

    Let's hope you're right.
