Carrots and Sticks


TRIGGER WARNING:  In which I mention a nuclear Iran.
For John, BLUFKicking the can down the road is a good approach when you have nothing else.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



Here is another wrinkle in the ongoing negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program:
July 9—Due date for President Obama to submit the Iran nuclear agreement to Congress for a 30-day review.  (If submitted after July 9, Congress will have 60 days.)
The source is the Friends Committee on National Legislation.

And from yesterday's edition of The New York Times we have an article on the Iranian Chief Negotiator returning "to Tehran for Consultations on Nuclear Talks".

A lot of drama.

No treaty is ever going to be good enough for some.  For some no treaty is necessary, because they can't believe Iran would be so stupid as to use a nuclear weapon.  The rest of us have to work in the middle ground.
