Iran and the US will have a deal. It is in the best interest of both of them. The details will be worked out in time. Why because the West needs Iran for several reasons.

One it needs it oil and natural gas reserves. This is huge because not only will keep prices low but it completely under cuts Russia. Iran has the second largest proven natural gas reserves in the world. Removing Europe from depenence on Russian gas is a matter of national security for the entire NATO alliance.

Iran and the US have been working together since 911, againt common enemies Taliban, AlQuida and ISIS among others. However this has always been cooperation at the lowest levels to avoid the appearance of officialy working together. The US and Iran able to coordinate their efforst at a higher level would be a huge advantage over our common enemies.

Iran has a strongly pro US/West population that becomes more and more rebelious every year. Add to that santions harming the economy and ruling party simply has to change to end up like Syria and Libya.

The US and Iran both want a stable region where oil and gas can flow. Iran can play that role better than the Arab states who have small militaries. A US backed Iran can help keep both Iraq and Afganistan from slipping into chaos.

And of course the US has a long history of tuning enemies into allies from the UK, Germany, Japan in the past to the Kurds, Vietnam and Iran today.

Who is against the deal? Russia of course. Radical islamic groups. Some in Israel because it takes away their last enemy and that means people in Israel would expect change. The GOP simply because the President is a Democrat. China because Iran and it oil become yet another pro Western is a disaster. And you have think the Royals in the Arab states have mixed feelings. With Iran back in the familly of nations the value of propping up the Royals without them making reforms becomes far less.

The end of Russia as world power and China's lack interest and ability to act on the World stage has handed the US several diplomatic coups in the last few years. Thankfully the US has taken advantage of this. With Vietnam, Cuba, Iran and India all moving to the West and the complete and total co opting of Africa into the Western camp has set the US in the best Stratgic position in its existance. This is why Iran and the US will cut a deal.

So then your OP is irrelevant as they (Iran) can't of received the alleged letter and therefore can't bribe oil companies to go against the non existent Republicans that sent the non-existent letter. It's either all or nothing so which is it?




very possible in your view.

The Saudis and Qatar disagree.

They want all the oil and gas business.

The Saudis and Qatar have just as much gas reserves.

And they do lots of business with the Western oil companies.

So which is it xuenchen? Did 47 R's send a letter to Iran and therefore give legitimacy to your OP or did they not?

There's no proof anywhere that "The Letter" was sent to Iran. Not even an email !!


There's no proof any U.S. Senator met with any Iran diplomats either.

All anybody did was read the thing off the one Senator's website.

I have no idea whether or not the Iran article is true or not either.

Lots of wild speculation all over the place with this Obama boondoggle.

Of course they disagree the more the West needs them the more likel the West will overlook those pesky ties with radicals and human rights abuses. With Irans oll and gas on the market then the West more likely to stop overlooking thing.

The reality of geopolitics can be amusing. Trust me I have spent many years being amazed at how things work. Most likely the same way most people who worked in the inteliigence and foriegn affairs community have felt.
