Given the alternative, I'd rather give peace a chance.
    While I wouldn't exactly call Iran a burgeoning flower of democracy and progressivism, they have not expressed any desire I've found for war, but have instead acted consistently in the interests of self preservation. They cannot be considered irrational in the same way that the leadership of North Korea is. Point is, they don't war, let alone to be blown to kingdom come, any more than the next country.

    If you have an alternate source for what is contained in the agreement that you believe is more credible, let's have it.

    There is no disagreement here. You believe it positive as do I. I am sceptical about what it will truly accomplish in the 6 month duration of the agreement. If we do not see continued and increased benefit in 6 months we may be only postponing inevitable confrontation of some type. I have not trusted the Iranis since the 1970s.

    As I said before "I hope for the best" But I. don't expect good results

    Not as yet, but you shouldn't put all your eggs in one basket.

    Prior to the new administration in Iran, I would of had issue with that statement. For now though, the new prime minister seems open to more rational alternatives than his predecessors.

    Obama caved to the Iranians......You can't trust them.............This will come back to bite him in the ass mark my word. Peace thru strength not weakness.

    No I haven't but judging from I have read and heard it throws Israel under the bus...That does not surprise me as I believe Obama like most Arabs hates Israel and the Jews.
