The Washington Free Beacon: “Iran is insisting the United States and world powers deliver more concessions at the negotiating table, including consenting to demands that any final nuclear agreement last less than 10 years.
The call for greater concessions was made in a speech Tuesday by Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, who accused the United States of “seeking to destroy Iran’s nuclear industry” and of being “on the opposite side of everyone in Iran.”
Iran’s bid to pressure Western powers came amid reports that the United States promised in secret documents to deliver to Tehran “high-tech reactors and other state-of-the-art equipment” that would modernize and improve its nuclear program. This portion of the agreement appears to reverse decades of U.S. policy towards Iran.
Opinion: The offer for high-tech reactors and state of the art equipment was made on May 30, but evidently even that is not enough for the Ayatollah. Perhaps he would be happy if we delivered a bomb to his door step or better yet we could just nuke Israel for him and save him the trouble.
A great deal maker said this: “The only way you’re going to make the deal you want, is if you’re coming from a position of strength and can convince the other side that you have something they need.” Donald Trump
Somebody needs to tell John Kerry that begging is not a position of strength.
