    Even the OP says:
    Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham however said on Saturday that no agreement has been reached "on any of the issues" discussed in the nuclear talks, according to Iran's Press TV. Afkham reportedly called the claims about a nuclear deal "politically-motivated" speculations aimed at undermining the talks.
    It's not even 'tentative'.

    This has been planted by the 'diplomats' and, it seems, Obama still sucks.

    This is great news. I suspect that many are sick of this story.

    When will the arrow of Elam be broken I wonder.

    Its enough to get some here all "giddy" about what they would like to see happen with Iran; rose colored glasses and all.

    Really? They do? Even tho they are shipping out many of the needed components to make a bomb...
    Even tho our own intelligence and Israeli intelligence say "we dont know if Iran even wants a bomb"?
    But hey I get it, Iran is the boogeyman.

    I really don't think we have gone anywhere, except that the Iranis have gained time and developed long range delivery capabilities for nukes.
    Even tho the IAEA and diplomats involved in it have said they have gone somewhere...

    Yes. Even though. I have been following Iran develop for a good while. They wanted a bomb as early as the Shah. Their present actions are totally consistent with the constraints under which they presently find themselves if they wanted a bomb. And the reports i have read are not as comforting as you would seem to like. No. I think it would be worse than naive to let up and compromise. It would be irresponsible.

    Hmm even though years ago we recognize that Iran has not made any moves consistent with acquiring a bomb? http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/25/wo...bomb.html?_r=0

    Even though we recognized along with Israel that they arent close to getting a bomb and that Israelis admit that the Iranians are using their enriched uranium for legitimate scientific purposes and not weapon purposes? US and Israel Recognize Iran Not Near a Bomb

    Any Iran/US nuke deal under this Administration will be just like the recent Cuban deal: Iran get's everything and gives nothing.

    Re: Iran and U.S. reach tentative agreement in nuclear talks

    i didn't see anything close to an agreement
    only that they continue to talk

    hopefully, long enough for iran to become the nuclear counterweight to israel in the region
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed
