With the Nov. 24 deadline to reach a deal on Iran’s nuclear program fast approaching, deep differences remain between Iranian and Western negotiators. Iran’s foreign minister on Tuesday said the U.S. and its allies are making “excessive demands” in this last round of negotiations where sticking points such as Iran’s uranium enrichment capacity and the speed of lifting sanctions have yet to be ironed out. What’s the likelihood of Iran reaching a deal with the group of six nations, which includes the U.S.?

      Would you have allowed Charlie Manson to take knife wielding lessons as a child or permit toy makers to produce life-like toy weapons ?

    I hope there is an agreement. I would like to see a detente and normalization with Iran. When we sanction and isolate, it just entrenches the powers that be – in this case, the ayatollahs and Republican Guard.

    There’s already an “Islamic bomb” in the neighborhood. Are other nations somehow comfortable with the government of Pakistan controlling nuclear weapons?

      “Trust but verify”… St R.R.R.

      In this case verify they are no longer enemies, which has not proven possible especially with the rhetoric that still is espoused from Iran

  • ES Trader

    Why shouldn’t Iran have nukes ?!

    Iran and the Muslim world in general has not demonstrated any characteristics of a civilized society in a global society.Why risk another Pakistan, Korea or further endanger Israel.

      Israel had no trouble supplying arms to post-revolutionary Iran as part of the Iran-Contra deal, 30 years ago. I wonder when they started to fear Iran.
