“The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) advances critical U.S. interests related to preventing the proliferation of nuclear weapons, strengthening global nuclear safety and security, and promoting the peaceful applications of nuclear energy. Founded in 1957, the IAEA is the global focal point for supporting the safe, secure, and peaceful development and use of nuclear science and technology. The IAEA contributes to a central U.S. national security objective: Preventing the proliferation of nuclear weapons. It applies nuclear safeguards — consisting of monitoring, inspection, information analysis, and other activities — to detect and deter the application of peaceful nuclear activities to weapons-related purposes.”
“All spent fuel from the Arak reactor that could be reprocessed to recover plutonium will be sent out of the country, and all of this will be under a rigorous IAEA inspection regime.” — E.M.
“Much has been made about a possible 24-day delay before inspectors could gain access to suspected undeclared nuclear sites. The IAEA can request access to any suspicious location with 24 hours’ notice. This this deal also creates a new mechanism to ensure that the IAEA gets the required access and sets a firm time limit to resolve access issues within 24 days. We have very high confidence that nuclear material used for advancing a nuclear program will detected in this time frame.” — E.M.

So they have had them for almost 30 years and no nuclear attacks?
Like already said, kinda throws a wrench in the "they will destroy everyone" once they get the nukes thought process.
We are trying something new in the ME, diplomacy over bombs.
If their program is peaceful while all the cloak and dagger?

So what now...the doomsday clock will be sent for ten years? Whatever happened to NOT negotiating with terrorists? Now we have a president that does everything for them including kissing their ass. And our "leaders" follow along saying behind the scenes..."awwww...he just wants something to call his legacy". Will the millions of dead Americans and our allies also be his legacy? Will Obama and gang be held responsible WHEN Iran passes a nuke to their terrorist friends?
I haven't said this in a long time, but I will repeat myself. While I don't believe Obama is a Muslim plant with the intent to destroy our country from within...he couldn't be doing much better if he was.

Diplomacy is better than war 99% of the time.
The Lindsay Graham style rhetoric is a danger to Earth 100% of the time.
We shall see how it pans out.
I have high hopes.
