Once again, we can count on Western “powers” to say a lot of stupid things in this meeting. And John Kerry will probably lead the pack. Go Iran! Two can play at this game.

Once again, in the great fencing match, Iran throws a feint move, at the west. Does the west react, by retreat, drop their guard, strike thru the feint. My bet, is someone will jar Kerry, from gazing in the mirror, to wake him up and whisper, your match has begun..who would you bet your life on, concerning nukes? Kerry, or Iran. That is my exact point, you are betting your lives, on this outcome.

There is not going to be any partnership so long as Iran maintains its position to expand its centrifuge refining capacity in nuclear talks, refusaes to improve its human rights situation or abandon its support of Hezbollah and Assad in Syria, which is a red line Khamenei will not cross.
Reducing their capacity as the West wants, will be the fatal blow to Iran’s nuclear ambitions and as such will be the primary reason why any agreement won’t be reached. Iran hopes though that any cooperation on Iraq announced will be viewed as positive by both sides since neither side can afford a total collapse in Iraq. Iran needs a deal badly to get keep its Shiite ally alive. Unfortunately for Iran, the West, especially US Congressmen will oppose any deal without guarantees that Iran will abandon any effort to meddle in Iraq from now on and rightly so.

The west accepts the right of Iran to have a nuclear program and it is a signatory to the NPT. How many centrifuges there are shouldn’t be an issue as long as there is sufficient inspection of its uses. If materials are being refined, end of deal. Otherwise, no need for all the fuss!
