Majid Rafizadeh: The Sunset Clause Guarantees That Iran Will Become A Nuclear Power
Share
clear

It becomes more and more obvious that Netanyahu's objections to the Obama-Kerry-Sherman negotiations with Mohammed Zarif, are not his alone, but shared by those who, instead of attitudinizing about Netanyahu's supposed "disrespect toward Obama" and Boehner's "poiticizing the matter," look at what is known about the deal close to being formulated, and what it means.

Majid Rafizadeh discusses the meaning of the Sunset Clause here.

His discussion of Obama's belief that the only possibilities are the deal being contemplated, with terms that Iran has managed to force the American negotiatiors to accept, or war, and that Obama has never had any intention to threaten or go to war, is here. Rafizadeh has not been impressed by the American failure to understand the Iranian bazaari-negotiatiors,who keep demanding, and getting more. 

The American negotiatiors have beenboth naive and inept, They have failed to grasp that sanctions have been effective and greater sanctions would be more effective, failed to understand that the Iranian economy is collapsing, the rainfall on which Iranian agriculture depends is catastrophically low, the cost of propping up Assad, and Hezbollah, and possibly now the Shi'a in Iran, ever higher. What amazes is that the steady series of concessions made by the American government seem to proceed without anyone noticing, or using as a level, the collapse of the Iranian economy, brought about both by the cutting in half of oil prices and thus oil revenues, and by the sanctions that have proven effective, and are the only reason the Iranians decided to negotiate at all.
