|Some preliminary deal has been agreed upon in Geneva that will restrict Iran’s civil nuclear research and production program in exchange for lifting sanctions.The deal is unfinished. The devil is in the details and those have yet to be agreed upon.
The deal will fail when on June 30 those agreements will turn out to be unachievable.There are many distortions and lies in the “western” reporting on the issue. Facts that are left out include:
There is now a very disturbing tendency in U.S. commentary, following Obama’s lead, to say that the (unfinished) deal should be taken because it the only alternative is war.
Such stupid alternative “deal or war” as argument for a deal is dangerous because the deal can still fail and the hawks will then argue that “even the lubral commentators said ‘deal or war’ so now it must be war.”
Indeed, given Obama’s very aggressive foreign policy thus far I can not exclude that war on Iran is his real aim and only hidden behind very public but sham negotiations to make a public case for it.
