Still stung by Syria stalling on giving up the chemical weapons to had previously “agreed” to give up, the White House now must face the fact that its Iran talks are a sham:
Iran drew a red line on Tuesday on how far it would go at landmark nuclear talks, saying as the meeting opened that it would not buckle to pressure from the U.S. and five other world powers to scrap any of its nuclear facilities.
The statement by Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi suggested tough talks ahead, constituting a rejection of a central demand by the six countries.
You get the feeling John Kerry will now claim what is needed are really really earnest to talks to restart to really earnest talks following the stalled non-talks?
Because this time it might just work.
PS When Iran draws a red line, I believe it.
