This Is Not a Deal

Today in Lausanne, Switzerland, officials from the United States, Iran, and other world powers delivered big news about the negotiations aimed at halting Iran’s quest for a nuclear bomb. But they didn’t announce a deal. In fact, they didn’t even announce an agreement. Rather, they revealed, according to the New York Times, a “specific and comprehensive general understanding about the next steps in limiting Tehran’s nuclear program.” There’s a lot of padding in that description for a reason: the P5+1 powers are far off from anything resembling a nuclear deal with Tehran.

    They’ve agreed to agree that a framework for an agreement is in place provided that all party’s can come to an agreement in a specified timeframe.
    I feel so much safer now.

    The Global News Toronto kicked off the 11 o’clock show all breathless about the agreement being unprecedented ……. Obama toungebath ….. Blah, blah, blah.

    Iran has already won. The picture says it all. Look at the prestige they get being the reason for all the most powerful countries to line up with their flags.
