High Hopes in Iran as Nuclear Talks Head Into Final Round

Jasmin Ramsey, IPS News

A final deal on Iran’s nuclear programme wouldn’t only make non-proliferation history. It would also be the beginning of a better life for the Iranian people—or at least that’s what they’re hoping.

Iranians, who are keeping a close eye on the talks which will resume Saturday in Vienna amidst the looming June 30 deadline, believe that significant economic improvements would result from a final accord in the near term, according to a major new poll and study released here this week.

Given the geopolitical realities of:

  • A declining US/Euro-centric world order and the rise of BRICS, with the face-down of the Greek debt scam and looming Grexit from the Eurozone;
  • The blueprint for final evisceration of Western sovereignty and democracy in the new-generation templates for corporate rule TPP TTIP and TISA;
  • The tight strategic alignment of the US/Israeli/Saudi axis in the age of climate chaos and peak oil;
  • The thorough corruption of US political elites in regard to all these;

How can anyone believe that a genuine US/Iran rapprochement will emerge from the six-party talks?

Expect a breakdown.

After Fukushima, Chernobyl, Three Mile Island and more nuke accidents we don't know about, and since Iran has enough oil to kickstart a renewable energy program like Germany's, there can only be one reason for their wanting nuclear reactors, and we know what it is.

Maybe Russia will provide Iran with enough nuke missiles to have their own Cold War detente without Iran having to build reactors.

Iran has way more long-term upside, economically, than Saudi Arabia and Israel, combined. " The business of America is business. " Saudi and GCCs have run out their string on MENA meddling. The BRICS and the world move forward, the Saudis and their ilk, pound sand on this one. Benny the Net, Adelson and his posse can go play in the sand box with the other RWN and build their existential castles in the air. Maybe they'll even have time for a few games of Dungeons and Dragons. Enough is more than enough, sometimes.

The 3 principal types of nuclear reactors are research, power, and destructive (aka "bombs"). I would say that Iran wants research reactors for medical and power industrial isotope production and for educational puposes. And thar reactors are wanted for energy production. I can't think of any other reason; can you?

I think they will be able to come to suitable compromises if they leave Israel out of the loop.

This is nothing more than a show and tell pony show. The US, Russia and China, not to talk about Korea, Pakistan, India, Israel having plenty of nukes to destroy the world. What is so special to stop Iran to have ONE nuke? They have not attacked and invaded several other countries on this planet after all.

Who knows why Obama is pushing so hard for this. Anything he does is subject to be questioned. he portrays one side to the public and another totally different side to the oligarchs. I no longer trust him on anything any more. Sending more troops and weapons to the NATO nations bordering Russia is the height of arrogance. Slapping sanctions on Russia left and right is insane - and yet he wants to negotiate something with Iran? Have no idea what is behind it. Another ACA for the insurance companies and Big Pharma under the disguise of healthcare for all?

Israel put the loop around their own neck on this one. Saudis, too, with the aiding of U.S. RWN in the Reagan Adm. And, Bush/Cheney fustercluckus gigantus. Iraqi Sunnis, blowback humungous, are the sacrificial lambs, here. Refuges will be everywhere, too. Kurds to the upper left in The Levant and Iranians to the right, and both closing. Syria won't capitulate to Israel, either. Yemen puts Saudis between a rock and a hard place, for Iran; a long memory and patience, is paying off. Make the deal and let them get back to business as usual. Which is to agree to disagree on almost everything except the weather.
