'Quite possible' Iran, powers can reach nuclear deal next week - U.S. official
Reuters/UK Yahoo ^ | Nov 16, 2013 | Lesley Wroughton, Reuters

Posted on 11/16/2013 9:23:37 AM PST by Innovative

Major powers and Iran are getting closer to an initial agreement to curb Iran's nuclear program, a senior U.S. official said on Friday, adding it is "quite possible" a deal could be reached when negotiators meet November 20-22 in Geneva.

U.S. President Barack Obama has urged sceptical U.S. lawmakers not to impose new sanctions on Iran while negotiations are ongoing and called for a pause in U.S. sanctions to see if diplomacy can work.

In addition to lobbying lawmakers, the White House this week also reached out to progressive groups supportive of diplomacy with Iran to make sure they stay aligned with the Obama administration's approach, according to a source close to the matter.

All this was predictable and the Jewish voters in the US who overwhelmingly voted for Obama are complicit.

Israel reserves right to act after powers reach deal with Iran

DEBKAfile November 16, 2013, 12:08 PM (GMT+02:00)

Home Security Minister Gilead Erdan said Saturday that Israel does not recognize Iran’s right to enrich uranium. in a radio interview, he said that if Tehran is allowed to advance up to the threshold of a nuclear weapon, Israel will consider all its options including the militlary one. He warned that the interim deal returning to the table in the next round of talks between the powers and Iran next Wednesday may well become a permanent accord, if sanctions are eased.

Contradicting US Secretary of State John Kerry, Erdan stressed that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu knew the content of the proposal put before Iran down to the last detail. He also noted that the 200 centrifuges Iran was running to enrich uranium ten years ago had multiplied to 20,000 at present.

Another big win for the Islamoterrorists. It won’t be long before one of their nukes kills a lot of Americans. Barry don’t care.

Netanyahu tweet urges West to avoid ‘bad deal’ over Iran nuclear program

http://www.foxnews.com/world/2013/11/15/israeli-pm-takes-to-twitter-to-urge-west-to-avoid-bad-deal-over-iran-nuclear/

EXCERPT:

“In his latest salvo against making concessions to Iran, Netanyahu’s Twitter account featured a cartoon-like ad that detailed what he said the pending agreement included.

“The proposal enables Iran to develop atomic bombs and build long-range missiles to reach the U.S. and Europe,” it read. “Iran is getting everything and giving nothing.””

Iran needs money and Obama is making sure they will get it.

EXCERPT:

“If an interim agreement can be reached, the United States will ease the economic sanctions on Iran, mainly by giving Iran access to its frozen assets. Israeli officials and experts outside government have speculated that Iran might receive $15 billion, or much more, in sanctions relief through this mechanism.

The Obama administration will not say publicly how much relief it is prepared to provide, although some officials have suggested that it could be about $5 billion. Asked about reports that the relief could be $15 billion or $20 billion, the senior administration official said, “It is way south of all of that, and quite frankly it will be dwarfed by the restrictions that are still in place.” “

The deal is we stop hassling Iran with sanctions and they keep building up their nuclear arsenal.

The Israelis will be sold out by Obama just like the Czechs were by Neville Chamberlin’s deal with Hitler in 1939.

I think it was in the movie-—Patton stopped at the edge of the Rhine and said “yeah, boys let’s camp here for a bit and see if Hitler gives up.” Rrrriiiiggght-—sitting on your dumbass hands works every time it’s tried. If Kerry wants to put some pressure on he could start by peeing in the Persian gulf.

How about this two option deal:

Option 1 -
IF you stop working on nukes now,
THEN we won’t blow your a$$3S away.

OR

Option 2 -
IF you don’t stop working on nukes now,
THEN we will blow your a$$3s away.

Which will it be?
