"Tirman says it should include lifting of US sanctions, which he says haven't worked anyway, and normalizing diplomatic relations, broken off since the embassy seizure. He also calls for abandoning threats of regime change in Iran, and acknowledging the legitimacy of the theocratic government."
Who is Tirman working for?
Imagine the balls other countries will grow when they realize america couldn't do shit about iran's nuclear program.
It's going to start with all the countries in the region asking to start a peaceful nuclear energy project, some might openly start developing nuclear weapons like iran.
If america had permitted iran to develop nuclear weapons from the start, that would be a different story, first they sanctioned them, then they threatened to attack, now they are backing off not only on a possible attack but also on the sanctions, what kind of an image does that create? See a cat is always a pussy, there's nothing wrong with that, but when a dog barks, jumps at you, but then backs off like a pussy and squeaks like a pig, you know there's something seriously wrong with him, and you realize how fucked up he is.
How can america be successful, they never complete a task they have started, they drag everything on forever.
