    Iran has never intended to comply. The mullahs want nukes and they will get them, unless stopped by someone. The best chance was in ’09 during the domestic unrest. Obama squandered that opportunity.

      Don’t you know why those two issues are not resolved yet?
      Let me tell you. Because 5+1 say “Iran must admit it because we can not prove it!”
      Is there anything more ridiculous than that?

    And what if ISIS and Iran combine their forces against West? Against non-believers, all muslims must gather.

    America is not going to have any alliance with Iran. They’re Islamic, remember?

    Yes, Shiite, we know. Not Sunni.

    But the enemy of our enemy (ISIL) is not our friend. Silly to entertain it.

    why on earth should Iran pay any attention to the UN at all? If they did, it would demonstrate their stupidity.
    EVERYBODY knows that Iran can develop all the nukes they choose and nobody (aside from Israel) will do a damn thing about it.
    Obama is a joke. So are the Europeans. Russia and China trade with Iran and will stand to benefit if any sanctions upon Iran are imposed by the weeny, chicken-little Europeans and the communist-hate-America-first president, Ocommie.
    If I were Iran, I would proceed at light-speed to develop hundreds of nukes, all while the laziest and most dishonest american president in US history is still in office.
    Get ready to see the rise of the new Axis Powers; Russia and Iran, and their background aider and abettor, China.
    NATO and the USA are rightfully recognized today as paper tigers; all talk (sort of) and having the cohones of a garden slug.

    It doesn’t matter what Congress will or will not accept. Iran will do as they like because they know Obama will do nothing. What is Congress going to do, bomb Iran with the Congressional Air Force?

  • Any discussions in nuclear talks have to take into account the entire lifecycle of the nuclear weapon from fuel enrichment to warhead design to delivery system to guidance. By holding on to delivery systems and in an earlier statement by Khamenei on enrichment, the world knows in clear and simple terms that Iran is focused on possessing nuclear weapons. These talks are simply a way for Iran to stall in order to continue development and gain concessions such as the release of billions in frozen assets without having to give up anything. The P5+1 are pretty much united in not wanting to give Iran this capability so at the end of the day, we’re not going to get an agreement and Rouhani has proven to be a mere puppet to Khamenei without an independent moderate bone in his body.
