After three rounds of talks between Iran, the United States, Russia, China, France, the United Kingdom, and Germany (known as the P5+1), on the Iranian nuclear program, no visible progress has been made.
This is likely because one side – particularly the West – came to the table with unreasonable expectations which reflect the wishes of extremist, delusional Israeli politicians who have expressed concerns over the nuclear talks blocking Israel’s ability to conduct a unilateral strike.
It is worth restating that Iran does not have nuclear weapons and is not even pursuing them as stated by none other than U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta (twice), Israeli military chief Benny Gantz, and the U.S. intelligence community, to name a few.
Unfortunately, due to the lack of measurable progress in the negotiations, there are currently no plans for further negotiations.
This means that starting July 1, a new round of the crippling sanctions which have been imposed on Iran will be become active.
According to some, these sanctions which will include many more potentially devastating measures such as the removal of insurance from any and all tankers carrying Iranian oil “will bring an end to nearly all of Iran’s oil sales, sales which account for nearly 80 percent of Iran foreign revenues.”
Furthermore, Homeland Security News Wire reports, “planning, in both Israel and the United States, for an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities has now shifted to a higher gear.”
