Europe's Unique Opportunity to Act / Trita Parsi & Reza Marashi
13-Jun-2012 (3 comments)

The nuclear talks in Baghdad between Iran and the Permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany (P5+1) failed to produce a breakthrough. The bad news is that time is running out. By July 1, the West will escalate with an embargo on oil and sanctions on Iran's Central Bank. Iran will respond in kind and the situation may get out of control. The good news is that the ball is in Europe's court and -- unlike America -- the EU has the ability to make diplomacy succeed in the short term.

 Terry and his side kick zadan be sime akhar...They just write to show that they are still working hard for their bosses. I don't even think they bother to read what they write

They say that   that there are no incentives for Iran, then in the same paragraph they want the US to delay the looming sanctions. Isn't the removal of sanctions the only incentive Iran has for action? It seems to me that easing the sanctions will only reduce IRI's desire to negotiate...

For truth’s sake

The lifetime president of the NIAC lobby and his newest lobbyist, the former Tehran based employee of the Atieh Bahar, a Rafsanjani front gateway conglomerate for international companies including oil seeking entry and doing business in Iran, in part say:

“According to renowned Iranian economist Bijan Khajehpour, …”

For truth’s sake and transparency, something which is in short supply in NIAC lobby, the “renowned Iranian economist” Khajepour, is the former boss of the newest lobbyist at the NIAC lobby; the “renowned “is also related bay marriage to the lifetime president of NIAC lobby’s best body, Namazi who had a part in creating NIAC lobby.

Now, good luck with your trying to sell your “grand bargain” package designed to insure the survival of the messianic warmongering Islamist Rapists.
