    Sometimes Chris Hedges gets a little dramatic. It has been proven that Iran is not planning to have an atomic bomb, they have gone thru many inspections and they have not found any evidence. Israel is the only country in the Middle East which has atomic bombs. A war with Iran might create a great mess in the Middle East probably worst Tham the war in Ukraine

    Who is being intransigent?

    Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian was quoted on Friday as saying his country and the United States were very close to a deal to revive the 2015 accord, but that Tehran needed U.S. guarantees to avoid getting “bitten twice”.

    “We have a ready text in front of us and we agree on more than 95 to 96 percent of its content, but there’s still an important flaw in this text: we need to get the full economic benefits of the agreement. We don’t want to be bitten twice,” Iranian media quoted Amirabdollahian as saying

    Their views will be ignored but opinion polls in America do not reflect the bellicose policies advocated by the chicken-hawks of the pro-Israel lobby and instead diplomacy should be the policy

    In a survey of 1,330 likely voters, 78 percent of respondents said Washington must use its best diplomatic tools to “put an immediate end to Iran’s nuclear weapons program,” while only 12 percent agreed with the statement that the United States “must go to war with Iran in order to slow down its nuclear weapons development.”

    74 percent of likely voters polled said they supported a deal that would use international monitoring to stop Iran’s nuclear program from progressing. On the other side, eight percent favored military action that would set the program back “by years,” and five percent supported the current path, even if it would allow Iran to develop a weapon in the next year.

    A slim majority (56 percent) of Republicans would support a “new agreement to limit Iran’s nuclear program,” even if that accord was based on the original deal.
