In another epoch making triumph for diplomacy, western foreign ministers led by john (Lurch) Kerry and William (The Mekon) Hague forced the government of rogue state Iran to accept that sanctions against it would be lifted. In a tense meeting in Geneva Kerry and Hague imposed concession upon concession on the Islamic theorcracy while frustrating the Iranians eargernes to do a deal by demanding nothing of them.
In return for the easing of economic sanctions the Iranian govrnment has had to promise to carry on doing whatever the hell it likes. Russia Today reported:
“As part of the agreement, the international community has accepted Tehrans right to a peaceful nuclear program. But after the deal was struck, participants in the Geneva talks put different interpretations on the issue of Irans right to enrich uranium.
Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister Seyed Abbas Araghchi wrote on Twitter that the right to enrichment had been recognized in negotiations, and after the deal was clinched Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said the deal accepted Tehrans right to enrich uranium.
This deal means that we agree with the need to recognize Iran’s right for peaceful nuclear energy, including the right for enrichment, with an understanding that those questions about the [Iranian nuclear program] that still remain, and the program itself, will be placed under the strictest IAEA control, Lavrov told journalists.”
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned the agreement as a “historic mistake” and said the world had become a more dangerous place.
Business as usual then?
