Singling out Iran is for political reasons. It's not about legitimate fears of an illegal weapons program in the hands of a country threatening to use them.
The key red line Iran won't cross is "diverting" nuclear material for weapons production. Numerous experts and independent reports "affirmed (for) years that they have no evidence (of) any such program."
Multiple rounds of sanctions "go far beyond anything related to its nuclear program."
The hype about it is political. It has no scientific basis whatever.
Washington Post editorial assertions are false, misleading, and inflammatory. Iran is legally entitled to pursue its nuclear program.
P5+1 proposals were disingenuously one-sided. Unreasonable demands were made. Nothing was offered in return. Western good faith wasn't present in Baghdad. It's an oxymoron. It doesn't exist.
Tehran negotiated responsibly. Not good enough, said Washington. Prove a negative was demanded. Refuse and be blamed for Western obstructionism.
Multiple rounds of discussions won't change things. WP editors think the "slide toward war remains desirable. Iran cannot be granted much more time to build and install centrifuges."
