All eyes may not be on Iran but maybe they should be. Or more accurately on the negotiations and the potential minefields that could unhinge the diplomacy with the Islamic Republic and the G5 plus 1 that occurred just weeks ago.
It was just a temporary diplomatic agreement that was agreed to which had Iran freezing its existing nuclear program in exchange for easing some existing sanctions.
Those "minefields" include the sanctions hawks in Congress who want sanctions ramped up as they appear to be the most problematic in crippling a final deal with Iran. And make no mistake; these are not some independent yahoos acting out of good conscience over an Iranian nuclear bomb capability. No this crowd are the sycophants beholden to the AIPAC led Jewish Lobby and Israel who are dead set against any deal that allows Iran to have any type nuclear program.
Yesterday, before a House committee discussing the interim deal with Iran, Secretary of State John Kerry uncharacteristically though succinctly put it, "This is a very delicate diplomatic moment. We're at one of those hinge points in history." Considering some of his outlandish verbal gaffes i.e. bomb Syrian government installations in response to its alleged use of chemical weapons without any proof or confirmation, on this point regarding Iran he's right on target.
