Phased US-Iran nuclear deal taking shape

If you’ve ever wondered what side the Obama administration is on, it should be pretty clear by now.

They have helped Iran stall over and over again, denied Israel crucial weapons it needs to defend itself and hampered its ability to go on the offensive if it knows it has to strike first to fight for its very existence. By the time 2017 comes around and Barack Obama is out of office, new rules of engagement added to the laws since during his tenure will have been set in stone for America’s military and it will not be able to engage.

Iran gets a free pass and the world over is endangered.

 

GENEVA (AP) — The United States and Iran are working on a two-phase deal that clamps down on Tehran’s nuclear program for at least a decade before providing it leeway over the remainder of the agreement to slowly ramp up activities that could be used to make weapons.

Officials from some of the six-power talks with Iran said details still needed to be agreed on, with U.S. and Iranian negotiators meeting Monday for the third straight day ahead of an end-of-March deadline for a framework agreement. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry joined the negotiations after arriving Sunday.

A breakthrough was not expected before Kerry returns to Washington later Monday. Still, Western officials familiar with the talks cited long-awaited progress on some elements that would have to go into a comprehensive deal. They described the discussions as a moving target, however, meaning changes in any one area would have repercussions for other parts of the negotiation.

The idea would be to reward Iran for good behavior over the last years of any agreement, gradually lifting constraints on its uranium enrichment program and slowly easing economic sanctions.
