The deadline for an agreement between the P5+1 and Iran on its nuclear development are likely to be delayed for another month as U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry prepares to settle for a ”framework” that is likely to be worth as much as his “framework” for his other folly, known as the Peace Process.
As of now, there are a few hours before the Monday night “deadline,” a meaningless term since the last deadline also was extended.
The “framework” is supposed to spell out some “principles” on which Iran and the P5+1 can agree on. Iran has no problem agreeing on principles so long as they remain on paper.
Unofficial reports from Vienna are that both sides will adjourn on Monday and try again next month to reach deal that virtually everyone except the P5+1 cannot be reached unless it gives Iran a free ticket for nuclear weapon.
The Arab world, led by Saudi Arabia, do not trust Iran.
Iran does not trust Iran.
But the Western countries, led by Kerry, still “talk the talk,” believe that more talk is the solution to all problems because it prevents anybody from doing anything.
Of course, everyone including Kerry knows that Iran is working on a nuclear weapon, while Tehran insists its nuclear development is for “peaceful purposes,” which in its language means annihilating Israel so the Middle East can be made safe for an Islamic state that then can either buy up the United States or bury it, depending on the price of oil.
One western diplomat was quoted as having said on Monday, as if he hasn’t said it every day, “Some progress has been made,” whatever “progress” is supposed to mean.
