Ahh, the “world powers” and Iran have come to an “agreement.”
Should we breathe a sigh of relief ?

Oil-rich Iran demands it has a “right to” and “needs” nuclear facilities, which they have buried and hidden deep underground. Solely for peaceful purposes of course, Iran repeats.

In 1939 the “world powers” and Hitler also came to an agreement, the infamous Munich Accord. Just after it was signed, British prime minister Chamberlain proudly pronounced that this would lead to “peace for our time.”

The Iranians would be complete fools if they (at any point) abandon their right to enrich and to full mastery of nuclear technology.

Khamenei is right: The West should not be trusted.
Iranians, of all people, should know that — i.e. remember what happened in 1953.

I hope it stays on track. The idea of nuclear war gives me the creeps (and that goes for the freaks who keep pushing for it).

It all depends what Israel tells and wants from America.

@Anthonykovic

Comparing Germany to Iran shows either your lack of historical references or your Israel-first bias, both of which are dangerous to reality.

@Anthonykovic, the Iranians buried the nuclear facilities because they know Israelis might try to bomb them in a surprise air strike. As for nuclear weapons, if Israel has them, then why can’t Iran have them too? Of course in my opinion Israel needs to give up its nuclear weapons, then there should be talk of Iran not getting any nuclear weapons either.

The provisional nuclear deal signed between Iran and P5 plus 1 in Geneva on November 24 has apparently defused the explosive situation in Middle East. It has been widely hailed as the triumph of diplomacy. President Hassan Rouhani and Foreign Minister Javed Zarif are being applauded for their pragmatism and for averting a catastrophic war in the making. High sounding names are being subscribed to the deal. The fact of the matter is that it was not diplomacy but application of sustained coercive and bullying tactics coupled with covert operations by USA and its allies that paved the way for the so-called momentous deal.

Finally – a peaceful path to let Iran develop nuclear weapons without sanctions. Since the war hungry Israel will not give their’s up – Iran needs them to create a stable Middle East. This is the only way.
