Iran Nuclear Deal Reached: Sanctions To Be Lifted, Monitoring 10 Years

All times given are in Eastern.  

1:48 p.m. – ValueWalk is ending live coverage of the Iran nuclear deal announcement.

1:45 p.m. – Iran’s nuclear research will be monitored and follow an agreed-upon timeline. An international joint venture will assist Iran with researching underwater nuclear reactor. European Union will end all sanctions and U.S. will stop application of nuclear, economic sanctions while the implementation of Iran agreement.

Now working on joint plan of action to be completed by June 30.

1:40 p.m. – Iran will also be ordered to slash the number of centrifuges from 19,000 to 6,000. Tehran’s uranium enrichment will be limited and monitored for ten years.

Joint statement just starting.

1:35 p.m. – Abbas Aslani of Tasnim News reports via Twitter that more than 1,000 centrifuges will still be running in the facility at Fordo and that over 5,000 centrifuges will keep enriching 3.67% in Natanz. As expected the length of the agreement about Iran’s uranium enrichment program will be ten years.

1:30 p.m. – It’s expected that U.S. President Barack Obama will make a statement on the Iran nuclear deal shortly. He had been scheduled to leave the White House and travel to Kentucky but has instead remained at the White House. There is not yet any official word on whether he will make a statement, but The Guardian suggests that it seems likely. European Union officials are calling the deal “good news.”

Although two-thirds of Iran’s enriched uranium is to be shipped out of the country or diluted, Tehran won’t be asked to close down any of its enrichment sites, reports Sputnik News.

1:25 p.m. – Reuters reports that one of the terms of the agreement is that most of Iran’s enriched uranium will be either shipped out of the country or diluted. According to CBS News, the deal also includes a number of other “technical elements.”

The joint statement is expected to include some of those elements so that Congress will have evidence that the U.S. can, in theory, guarantee a time period of one year before Iran would have the ability to build a nuclear bomb. Washington sought a one-year time frame.

1:20 p.m. – The reason for the delay in releasing the joint statement on the Iran nuclear deal appears to be because there is disagreement about how much of the deal to make public, reports CBS News. The news outlet’s source stated that the agreement covers only approximately 20% of the issue and pushes decision making on most of the bigger issues about implementing the deal back to the end of June when the final draft is due.

1:17 p.m. – The P5+1 and Iran are preparing a joint statement on the nuclear accord. It was scheduled to be announced at 1 p.m. Eastern, but officials are a bit behind schedule. We’re awaiting the official word.

Iran Nuclear Deal Reached: Sanctions To Be Lifted, Monitoring 10 Years

Clock was ticking on Iran nuclear deal

The world’s powers set a soft deadline of Tuesday to hammer out a preliminary deal and a basic framework for the deal with Iran over its nuclear program. The hard deadline is June 30 when they want to have a final deal, including all the specifics, set in stone, reports CNN. That final deal would be based on the initial framework officials put together this week.

Officials from the U.S., the U.K., Germany, France, China, and Russia, also known as the P5+1, have been at an impasse for almost a week. Their goal was to keep Iran from being able to develop a nuclear bomb, reports Reuters. In exchange, the countries would agree to ease the sanctions they placed on Iran, which have had a devastating effect on the nation’s economy.

Pace of sanctions release debated

The biggest issue the countries were having in discussing the Iran nuclear deal was how quickly they would lift the sanctions against Iran. Also the countries are at odds over how long Iran will be unable to make enough fuel to build a nuclear weapon.

Iranian officials said they’re running their nuclear program for peaceful purposes, reports the BBC. However, the other countries involved in the negotiations want to keep Iran at least a year away from being able to make enough fuel for one nuclear weapon.

Details on the Iran nuclear debate

According to the BBC, the other nations involved in the talks wanted to restrict Iran’s nuclear program for at least a decade. After those ten years, Iran wanted to see all the limits on its program lifted.

Iran wanted the UN sanctions to come to an end quickly after the agreement was made. However, the P5+1 wanted to phase out the sanctions gradually. They also wanted to restrict nuclear-related tech imports for years.

Additionally, the West wanted a penalty for non-compliance that would go into effect if Iran breaks the nuclear deal. The penalty would involve the UN sanctions being put back quickly. Russia agreed to it but wanted to protect its veto rights through the Security Council.

Iran’s demands

Iranian officials also wanted to be allowed to develop advanced centrifuges. The centrifuges would enable them to speed up uranium enrichment and produce uranium faster. Enriched uranium is used for both nuclear reactor fuel and as a component of nuclear bombs.

Iran also refused to ship its current nuclear fuel stockpile out of the country, which the P5+1 has been demanding.

  • John Doll

    And then in 10 yrs what is the plan Obama and Kerry? Short sighted, naïve and ignorant.

  • BearMountain15

    Past experiences with Iran honoring their promises are not good and how will this time be different? This administration would like to infer this “good deal” gives nations a years notice of actuality but perhaps Iran is already just months away from production and then the purchase of ICBM missiles to deliver the nuclear payload will be purchased from Russia as already announced by Russia. We’re in trouble folks.

    This had to be interesting to watch. On one side Iranians who believe it is ok to lie to infidels, especially if it allows you the opportunity to kill them on the other side people who believe it is ok to lie to anyone. The ones who lie to everyone are proud that they made a deal. Even if it means nothing.

    This is the 3rd not the 4th. The 4th will be later towards Septem 28th 2015. The 4th will be also the largest, and the only one of the four that will be visible from Jerusalem.

    But I do agree with you that this 3rd signifies a bad deal, and the marking of the death of Jesus Christ as a blood moon occurred on this very day almost 2000 years ago.

    LAUSANNE, Switzerland — Just hours after the announcement of what the United States characterized as a historic agreement with Iran over its nuclear program, the country’s leading negotiator lashed out at the Obama administration for lying about the details of a tentative framework.

    Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif accused the Obama administration of misleading the American people and Congress in a fact sheet it released following the culmination of negotiations with the Islamic Republic.

    Zarif bragged in an earlier press conference with reporters that the United States had tentatively agreed to let it continue the enrichment of uranium, the key component in a nuclear bomb, as well as key nuclear research.

    Zarif additionally said Iran would have all nuclear-related sanctions lifted once a final deal is signed and that the country would not be forced to shut down any of its currently operating nuclear installations.

  • AL VET

    A war now that prevents Iran from becoming a nuclear power will prevent the future annihilation of Israel, and a nuclear attack on the USA in the very near future. To kick the can down the road believing that Iran who continually threatens to annihilate Israel and destroy America, can be trusted, is beyond preposterous, it’s naïve. If this deal goes through, million of innocent people will be slaughtered, economies will fail, and the human sufferings will be immeasurable. God HelpUs!

    There were no problems solved. This is simply an interim verbal agreement with NO real content. As for Iran being a peaceful country, give me a break. Obama might think this is a verifiable agreement, but anyone with half a brain knows that Iran is NOT trustworthy.

  • Mir Z

    Mr. Obama we the Muslim Iranians must thank you again for making another historical achievement with the number 1 enemy of Iranian people and humanity. WOW Mr. Obama do you honestly think that the Iranian people are that stupid to know that this deal was done to only benefit your own masters and the Mullahs in Iran who have a thirst for more oil since an addict will never change?

    As far as Iranian people are concerned one more time Mr Obama proved, USA only makes historical progress with the enemy of Iranian people. Mr. Obama here is our question when will you make a historical move for once to benefit the Iranian people not their executioners????

    We the Iranian people demand from the world International court to prosecute Obama and his officials for crime against humanity by empowering the God Father of terrorism ruling Iran to continue its crime and devastation of millions around the world. Mr. Obama we will hold you responsible for the Mullahs crime as you are now adding fuel needed to expand their terrorism acts around the globe. Watch and SEE.

  • boon

    Obama did a great job guiding our country through a negotiation instead of war. Should be more cheap oil. He does not get credit for all the great things he has done.

  • Free Speech!

    Mr. Kerry may regret this one day if Iran, that currently criticizes his nation decided to attack us. Probably – he needs to keep his head low and stay inside for a while since our active duty United States soldiers might be exceptionally insulted by this thing that he calls “good.”

  • 3genUte

  • 3genUte

  • 3genUte

    BFD- let him- if he attacks Iran he will have isolated Israel from 95% of the world instead of 85%

  • 3genUte

    Do you know just how stupid it is to say Iran would use a bomb on Israel? Israel has 100’s of bombs, and believe me, every Islamic nation knows it. Iran is not stupid enough to commit national suicide- they hate Israel but not enough to die for exploding a couple small nuclear bombs there

  • 3genUte

    the end of the dimwit right wing alarm on the latest “crisis” that isn’t a crisis

  • 3genUte

    What a complete, brainwashed IDIOT! You be sure and clean your gun collection, hunker down, then wait for “end times”- and you will wait until you get old and die, possible with your hand gripping your gun with cold, dead fingers

    I believe the 4th blood moon due to arrive this weekend is aimed at this very bad deal we will surely come to regret.

  • Soroush Rafiei

    I really do not know what the ideas of terrorist Iran and Iran wants nuke bomb to attack Israel come from, But I do know that Iran just proved that problems can be solved without raging war against each other, which shows Iran is a more peaceful country that previously thought. those who worry about Israel should know that Israel will be fine because first of all, no matter how much Iran hates Israel, the cannot afford to attack it let alone eliminate it. second of all, as long as Israel is afraid of Iran, the U.S will benefit from it, so it is all a game, and you should be happy about this deal.

  • rick

    Also I might add that … ” Shut your mouth ” , is very bad form and quite ignorant. Commentary should be a little intelligent . Work on your communication skills sir.

  • rick

    The world didn’t make this deal , and no one is hearing a peep from the P5. The US and Iran are the only ones talking about the BAD deal they just made.

    Massacre of Ma’arra

    Main article: Siege of Maarat

    The most infamous event from the city’s history dates from late 1098, during the First Crusade. After the Crusaders, led by Raymond de Saint Gilles and Bohemond of Taranto, successfully besieged Antioch they found themselves with insufficient supplies of food. Their raids on the surrounding countryside during the winter months did not help the situation. By December 12 when they reached Ma’arra, many of them were suffering from starvation and malnutrition. They managed to breach the city’s walls and massacred about 20,000 inhabitants, as they often did when they captured a city. However, this time, as they could not find enough food, they resorted to cannibalism.[citation needed]

    One of the crusader commanders wrote to Pope Urban II: “A terrible famine racked the army in Ma’arra, and placed it in the cruel necessity of feeding itself upon the bodies of the Saracens.”[citation needed]

    Radulph of Caen, another chronicler, wrote: “In Ma’arra our troops boiled pagan adults in cooking-pots; they impaled children on spits and devoured them grilled.”[1]

    Those events had a strong impact on the local inhabitants of Southwest Asia. The crusaders already had a reputation for cruelty and barbarism towards Muslims, Jews and even Orthodox Christians (the Crusades began shortly after the Great Schism of 1054). Crusaders are still referred as “cannibals” in many Southwest Asian and north african languages[citation needed] and even centuries later their image as fanatical cannibals was alive in Arabic literature.[citation needed] Many authors suggest that the crusaders’ behaviour was not really born of their hunger but fanatical belief that the Muslims were even lower than the animals.[citation needed] Amin Maalouf in his book The Crusades Through Arab Eyes points out the most crucial line for such belief among the Muslims: “Not only did our troops not shrink from eating dead Turks and Saracens; they also ate dogs!” by Albert of Aix.

    Hey, what is 10 years to a century of religious hate toward the Western Infidels. Their time will come and OBAMA just gave them a timeline to finish. Wow, I wonder what OBAMA’s core objectives were and if they are more in his interest than the country’s interest.

    The comments here are that 5+1 leaders are wrong but the Zionist puddles here are right that Iran is going to do this or that. The deal is reached and shut your mouth. The world knows better. than you commentators here.

  • rick

    Important informative post sir. I don’t think many people are aware of Iran’s back up arsenal in NK. But unfortunately all may become aware soon.

  • Nighthawk 572

    North Korea is surrounded by much more powerful nations so just who could it use a nuke on without being clobbered? Iran on the other hand has only weak nations around it and a nuke would give it the upper hand. While the issue of Israel keeps coming up, recent events show a lot of Muslim vs Muslim fighting and who is to say Iran will not back up its friends with the threat of nukes? Look at Yemen as an example, would Saudi Arabia and Egypt be so willing to help if Iran threatened them with nukes? Then there is the issue of “suitcase” bombs. It can be done so what would stop Iran from giving a few to some terrorist groups? Lord knows they have not shown any restraint in what they are willing to do and they do seem to like high body counts. Imagine even a small nuke going off in a major city. No, the days of Neville are over, dangers need to be addressed before we have another Pearl Harbor or 911,

  • Johnny Anderson

    LETS BE CLEAR ABOUT ONE THING. IT WAS A JOINT EFFORT BY THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY INVOLVING SEVERAL OF OUR CLOSET ALLIED´S “(THE P5 PLUS ONE- BRITAIN – GERMANY – FRANCE – JUST TO MENTION A FEW.)” SO THEREFORE USING YOUR LINE OF REASONING AND LOGIC IF OUR PRESIDENT IS A TRAITOR THEN SO IS THE LEADERS OF ALL THE OTHER NATION INVOLVE IN THE NEGOTIATION TO THEIR COUNTRY ARE THEY NOT? TO BE HONEST OUR PRESIDENT WAS ELECTED TWICE BY A LARGE MAJORITY OF OUR POPULATION, BUT IT SEEMS THE GOP AND CONGRESSIONAL LEADERS HAVE TAKEN IT UPON THEMSELVES TO OVER RIDE THE AMERICAN PEOPLES VOTE AND APPOINT THEMSELVES PRESIDENT AND VICE PRESIDENT, WHAT DO YOU CALL THIS ACTION FORM THE GOP AND CONGRESSIONAL POLITICIANS. WORLD LEADERS ARE CONFUSE AS TO WHO THEY SHOULD CONTACT ON FOREIGN POLICY MATTERS. IS IT THE DULY ELECTED PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA OR THE LEADER OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES AND CONGRESSIONAL POLITICIANS WHO ARE ONLY ELECTED BY THE CITIZENS OF THEIR RESPECTIVE STATES. THE PEOPLE OF IRAN THAT WILL BE THE CITIZENS NOT THE POLITICIANS ARE REACHING OUT THEIR HAND IN FRIENDSHIP AND WE THE AMERICAN POPULATION IS SLAPPING AND BRUSHING IT AWAY. THEY THE PEOPLE OF IRAN NOT THE POLITICIANS HAVE BUILD THEIR INITIAL STAGE SIDE OF THE BRIDGE OF PEACE FRIENDSHIP AND UNDERSTANDING AS WE REFUSE TO EVEN ENGAGE IN CONVERSATION WITH THEM LET ALONE START BUILDING OR WORKING ON THE FOUNDATION OF OUR SIDE OF THE BRIDGE. THANKS TO THE FAMOUS RENEGADE 47 PLUS ONE POLITICIANS THE AMOUNT OF DISRESPECT SHOWN TO OUR PRESIDENT AND HIS FAMILY AMERICA STANDING IN THE EYE OF THE WORLD IS. WELL ACTUALY I CANT FIND THE CORRECT WORDS, SENTENCE OR THOUGHTS TO DESCRIBE IT. THE LETTER AND ACTION OF THE REPUBLICAN ONLY STRENGTHEN OUR ENEMY’S POSITION IN THE EYE OF THE WORLD, AMERICA IS NOW BECOMING THE BULLY ON THE BLOCK MY WAY OR THE HIGH. HOW OTHER NATION FEEL AND THINK ARE NO LONGER CONSIDER OR PART OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. ISRAEL IS NOT OUR CLOSET ALLIE THAT WILL BE BRITAIN FIRST AND FRANCE NOW WE ARE ABLE TO SAY GERMANY WITH A CLOSE EYE ON THEM OF COURSE, JUST MY OPINION ABOUT GERMANY “(WE AMERICANS TRUST YOU GERMANY – BUT NOT BLINDLY)”. WE SHOULD ALWAYS GIVE PEACEFUL SOLUTION A TRY AND IF ISRAEL WANTS TO BOMB IRAN AND START A INTERNATIONAL WAR THEN WE SHOULD PUT SANCTION ON THEM TO PREVENT OUR YOUNG MAN AND WOMEN FROM FIGHTING AN AVOIDABLE AND UNNECESSARY WAR STARTED BY OUR FRIENDS. DON’T USE THEIR FEAR, PREJUDICE AND HATRED TOWARDS ANOTHER RACE TO STIRRUP AND RILE UP THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO FIGHT OR START WORLD WAR THREE THATS A NO WIN SITUATION FOR THE ENTIRE WORLD. ISRAEL AND THE US BOMB IRAN- CHINA, NORTH KOREA AND RUSSIA COME TO THEIR AIDE – BRITAIN, GERMANY AND FRANCE COME TO SUPPORT THE US. IF THE PRIME MINISTER WAS SO CONCERN ABOUT THIS DEAL WHY DIDNT HE SPEAK TO BRITAIN – FRANCE – GERMANY – AND ALL THE OTHERS NATION LEADERS AND BODIES OF GOVERNMENT? OR IS IT TRUE ISRAEL IS THE REAL GOVERNMENT OF THE USA? LETS NOT FORGET THE CEREMONIES OF WORLD WAR TWO D-DAY JUST THIS PAST JUNE IF I AM NOT MISTAKING. WHAT DOES AMERICA STANDS FOR DEATH AND DESTRUCTION OR PEACE AND UNDERSTANDING. YOU CAN ALWAYS EASILY WITH NO COMPLICATION AT ALL START A WAR, BUT TO BRING ABOUT PEACE AND THE END TO SUCH WARS IS MORE DIFFICULT THEN WHAT PEOPLE REALIZE AND THINK. JUST LOOK AT ALL THE PAST WARS IN THIS WORLD HISTORY DATING BACK TO THE CAVEMAN TIME. AS A MATTER OF FACT JUST LOOK AT THE MIDDLE EAST AND IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN ALL THAT DEATH AND DESTRUCTION OVER WHAT RELIGION – RACISM – DISCRIMINATION AND PREJUDICE. WE HUMAN BEING OF ALL RACES AND NATIONS CALL OURSELVES CIVILIZE AND INTELLIGENT BY WHAT STANDARD ARE WE JUDGING OURSELVES, BY THE ACTIONS OF PREJUDICES, RACISM, WARS, DEATH, DESTRUCTION, DISCRIMINATION, BY OUR RELIGION AND BELIEFS, OUR STANDING IN SOCIETY.

    Might be worth the time to read the P5 countries media reports to see just how much input they actually had in this deal. Doesn’t sound like anyone was doing any talking besides the US and Iran. How many more of our allies just called a meeting to see what benefit being allied to the US will be.

    just to let everyone know iran knows we can not track what they do,yes this is an agreement that will lift sanctions, but iran has an advantage because most of their nuke pragram is in north korea who has no agreement with us. so i would say iran already has the bomb . and yes israel know this also and will take steps to defend itself

    just want to have big bomb and stored in a locked safe for safe keeping
    emergency situations like any coutries like Israel ever become annoy the
    fact is they have itching trigger finger to go off for anything that

    The US isn’t fighting wars for Israel , they stand on their own two feet and as Bibi said …. Israel will stand. When the US is fighting Israel’s fight you will clearly see Iran in flames.

  • Jake Noy

    Name one war they did?

  • CJ Cossette

    1:49 PM – Nutjobyahu will probably put Israeli forces on alert.

  • rick

    Maybe we should have sweetened the deal further by offering some long range birthday candles for their current stockpile.

  • Troy Sheaffer

    So that’s the great liberal answer, kick it down the road for someone else to deal with?

  • NorthAmericanCitizen

    Don’t worry folks. In ten years WWIII will be over, the Tribulation will be over, Iran will be in cinders, and Christ will be reigning over all the earth from Jerusalem as the King of Kings. As for Obama and Kerry, they’ll be dead along with 3 1/2 billion other human beings.

  • Russell Jones

    Holy cow, the Halfrican has just made the world bend over and grab the ankles while Iran sprinkles sand in the K-Y jelly before insertion. Way to go you Musloid loving nincompoop.

  • rick

    If Iran didn’t sponsor so many terrorist groups and terror attacks against Israel then they wouldn’t feel such a dire need to defend themselves against Nuclear attack. As far as it goes for the gift that the US and P5 just gave them…. Forgive them Lord for they know not what they have just done.

  • DT Griffin

    You are either a muslim terrorist or a complete idiot to make such a comment. I’m guessing your ignorant liberal self ran out of unborn baby skulls to crush, old people to kill off with obamacare death panels or couldn’t find a veteran to withhold healthcare from, so you tried to get on the internet and enter into adult conversation, knowing full well that you are too poorly educated, too poorly informed or just so mentally retarded that you aren’t aware of how to better hide your foolishness.

  • Robert T. Griffin

    “School is Out”, according to Alice Cooper… The Obama Administration has closed down our Educational Institutions in a show of solidarity with Iran’s Nuclear ambitions, sanctions are lifting and as we all know in this part of the world you can’t put the Genie back in the Bottle! Woe to our next Commander-In-Chief, the components of an Iranian inspired Caliphate is coming to a street corner named… Desire!

    America is the only entity that’s been FRAMED into a corner, talk about a piece of work, just how do we align the facts up with this development when we were never completely informed of Iran’s nuclear program particulars both above ground and below? How do you make a proper assessment of these negotiations without verifying first the cards these people are holding in their hands? How do you blindly move forward without compromising your position of strength in what appears to be a myopic consensus that strictly caters to the Iranian position to advance its nuclear technology, it’s ambition of owning the bomb, as in shutting down completely the voices of their dissenters!

    President Obama is at it again given another Catch-All speech that mirrors his Affordable Health Care Bill, sign it first and maybe we will let you examine the madness of our decision to approve the language of a Nuclear Deal with the Iranian Ayatollahs, grant you we’ve got no idea of the “Lay of the Land” that currently exists regarding the Iranian Nuclear facilities and the capabilities they’re working towards. Yes, we have no survey of these particulars in order to make an informed decision regarding these negotiations on the spread of Nuclear Technologies in a country that takes pride in spreading their own brand of self-sufficiency through the use of terrorism when other people don’t agree or accept their premise, their philosophical doctrine, their ideology that specifically arms them with the notion they are the sole arbiter of things to come!

    Rejecting some 2016 presidential contenders for all the wrong reasons, accepting of individual personal character traits seem to be falling on deaf ears, what’s wrong with our society that they would sacrifice our best people for known criminal activist sympathizers in the selection process for the right person to be seated as our next executive branch presidential leader who would run our government, not into the ground, but above ground? Seems no matter how we slice the boloney we come up with a meal that’s not fit to be eaten by our children! The choices seem to be more of the same, I see nothing worth investing in given our current list of candidates that are lined up for our consideration in this presidential 2016 Run for the Roses contest.

    I suppose I’m out of options to be considering another wild card, but is Tom Cotton truly a wild card? He like Barack Obama hasn’t been branded by the Establishment with their culture of finesse in deceiving the public trust, obviously Obama has surprised us all with his willingness to override most of all our basic Constitutional safeguards in protecting our country’s security, our economic vitality, our social and cultural values, the integrity of our legal system. You know we’re suppose to have a vetting process in place for these occasions, we didn’t apply that feature when we elected you know who… We as a people seemed to be prepared to ignore all the important factors in our deliberations about character, matter of fact we seem to be willing to commit to character assassination without due process, how fast we are to be creatures of the night and make a poor judgment call again and elect Hillary Clinton with what she brings to the political landscape, this is leadership quality we can take pride in announcing to the world… whose to say Tom Cotton is not a true American patriot that deserves to be heard, to be considered given these other career politicians that are still trying to manipulate the system of government in their favor, to steal the public’s attention away from the issues that are important in resolving our situation both domestically and in war torn areas of the Middle East where Isis, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iraq, and the Iranian Regime are in a life and death struggle with their neighbor’s ideology… Bottom line, just as it was before and is now, your choice of poisons!

  • Nighthawk 572

    By that logic, everyone should have nukes.

  • DT Griffin

    Is anybody still blind to this anti American, anti humanity liberal regime being led by this century’s Adolph Hitler, Obama? While killing America from within democrats/liberals have moved forward with Iran becoming a nuclear power. What could go wrong here?? How is it these insane, corrupt scum bags are not at Gitmo awaiting trial?

  • Abu Dickbutt Al-Bahgdhadi

    You realize that Iran said, on numerous occasions, they want Israel wiped off the face of the earth. I would always sleep with one eye open with that terrorist nation, Iran, right next door. Hopefully Israel nukes Iran in the near future.

  • Nighthawk 572

    It worked great for Clinton. He was able to say they stopped their program, problem solved. It delayed things just enough that Clinton did not have to deal with a nuclear North Korea, the problem got kicked down the road to Bush II. That is all Obama wants to do is be able to say he did something and leave the problem for the next guy. Any kind of deal, even a bad one will do it.

  • carbonstbum

    In 10 years Iran will be able to develope the bomb and also an ICBM which will be able to hit Obama’s Hawaiian Mansion right in the kitchen. Our President just authorized all the countries in the Middle East to go Nuclear and develope their own nukes. Our president just brought us closer to WWIII.

  • salicornia

    Keep the paramedics handy. GOP nutters and Israeli cronies in danger of having heart attacks.

    al-Taqiyya:
    deception; the islamic word for concealing or disguising one’s beliefs, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions, and/or strategies.

    It is impossible to understand Islam and Muslims by listening to their protestations against terror and their proclamations of patriotism for America. Usually, it is wise and fair to give people the benefit of the doubt but when it comes to national safety and the future of America, we had better look twice, even thrice at Muslim patriotism. Why? Because Islam permits lying! It is called “Al-taqiyya.” One Muslim said thatAl-taqiyya means dissimulation then he expanded it to diplomacy but he should have gone further to deception. Now some Muslims who do not follow the Koran are as faithful Americans as any of us, but the problem is, we cannot know.

  • Steve York

    Libturd MORON!

  • Koorosh

    Wish more people were as educated as you are. A pleasure to read your comments.

  • Koorosh

    You’re amazingly brilliant… Well said, wise lady.

  • Jake Noy

    Sure.. And Nuclear War during your Childs

  • Jake Noy

    Clueless

  • eric

    R u kidding , lift sanctions . They`re going bring nukes , they have in north korea . Then who`s going to stop them?

  • randy

    It’s funny as soon as all the other country leaders left negotiating because the dead line was passed and only John Kerry stayed and all of a sudden we have a deal

  • Thameris Griffith

    What a fascist racist bigot.

  • Gilda Morkert

    Everyone got a LITTLE of something they wanted. I am glad to see this, if Israel would stop their fear mongering, murdering and spying, things would not be so hateful. They just keep stirring the pot.

  • Dan Wafford

    Huge win for world-wide Islamic terrorism. Obama is a worse traitor than Benedict Arnold. BA acted out of loyalty to his old country. Obama acts out of hatred for his.

  • Troy Sheaffer

    No, there “were and still are many options” short of war.
    Who stated we should go to war with them, please state their name for the record.
    We initially had a strong hand and could have negotiated from the place of strength, now we have nothing, we gave away the store to the worlds leading sponsor of terrorism.
    Liberals around the world must be proud.

  • Daniel Clemens

    Iran wins, we lose… Great Job Obama…

  • Troy Sheaffer

    How exactly did it work for Clinton?
    NK got the nuke they wanted, this is just another in a long line of foreign policy failures by liberals.

  • Gilda Morkert

    Hey, they need to defend themselves, Israel has Nukes. Actually Israel knows they don’t have Nukes, they have been singing that same song for years. How many speeches has Bibi made saying they were 1 year away,? Those years have come and gone and then some.

  • fishin_in_the_muck

    I would love to sit down with Obama and Kerry at a Texas Hold-em table!

  • http://johnroberthanson.com/ J Robert Hanson

    Oh hallelujah—peace in our times!!

  • Gary713

    Iran got everything that it wanted. We did not negotiate, we gave away the store for nothing.

  • Nighthawk 572

    Kicking the can down the road worked for Clinton with North Korea. You expect Obama to do BETTER than Clinton?

  • Lindy

    Obama just launched us into war with the Middle East.

  • Nighthawk 572

    Never fought one for them before so why would we start now?

  • Nighthawk 572

    Way to go Neville, we got peace in our time once again.

  • Bola

    The United States will not fight another war for the Isralies

  • fishin_in_the_muck

    10 years for the Iranians to get better technology and knowledge to then build a better bomb! This agreement is krap!

  • jesse james

    we have been had!!! obama sold us out for nothing! Iran makes out like a bandit.

  • joe

    Right we should just go into another war. Because the last 3 or 4 worked out GREAT..

  • Greg Whilden

    This water down deal is a green light sanctioning a Iranian Nulear State whose ICBM development will only continue. Nuclear proliferation is now the inevitable result as Tehran’s war against the Arab Sunni states and Israel is stated, directed, and continual. The mid-east arms race has just begun and with it Obama has sold us all down the river.

  • jlb74a .

    “monitoring for 10 years”…. Obozo didn’t accomplish anything, he’s just kicking the can down the road and let the next US president deal with issue….. GIVE ANOTHER NOBEL PEACE TO OBOZO THE CLOWN!!! YIPPIE KAYEH!!!
