Neocons Assail Possible Compromise on Iran Talks

As at least two days of talks on the future of Iran’s nuclear program got underway in Baghdad Wednesday, neoconservatives and other hawks escalated their campaign against any compromise agreement, particularly one that would permit Tehran to continue enriching uranium on its territory.

Fearful that the U.S. and the other members of the so-called P5+1 (Britain, France, Russia, China, plus Germany) will strike an interim accord with Tehran under which it would agree to limit its uranium enrichment to 5%, they argued that Iran should instead be forced to comply with a 2006 U.N. Security resolution calling for it to stop enriching altogether — a position that most Iran experts believe is certain to kill any prospect for progress.

“Given the Iranian regime’s long-standing pattern of deceptive and illicit conduct, we believe that it cannot be trusted to maintain enrichment or reprocessing activities on its territory for the foreseeable future — at least until the international community has been fully convinced that Iran has decided to abandon any nuclear-weapons ambitions,” wrote three prominent pro-Israel senators in the Wall Street Journal Thursday.

I think it needs to be recognized

that the "Evil Empire" has settled into the Neocon faction of the GOP and the Neolib faction of the Democrats.

It is with those people where all the pushing and scheming for all the worldwide wars is hatched and put into action. And there is basically no limit to the depths of moral depravity that they will stoop to.

The only real solution is for good people to yank the levers of power away from these psychopaths by any means possible.
Preferably peacefully,which is our hallmark, but all options need to be on the table.

Thanks Big T

If these "amigos" are not stopped we could face III World War as soon as this summer.
