PRESIDENT OBAMA should not lament but sigh in relief that Iran has rejected his nuclear deal, which was ill conceived from the start. Under the deal, which was formally offered through the United Nations, Iran was to surrender some 2,600 pounds of lightly enriched uranium some three-quarters of its known stockpile to Russia, and the next year get back a supply of uranium fuel sufficient to run its Tehran research reactor for three decades. The proposal did not require Iran to halt its enrichment program, despite several United Nations Security Council resolutions demanding such a moratorium.Iran was thus to be rewarded with much-coveted reactor fuel despite violating international law. Within a year, or sooner in light of its expanding enrichment program, Iran would almost certainly have replenished and augmented its stockpile of enriched uranium, nullifying any ostensible nonproliferation benefit of the deal.

    i don't see why there is so much time and energy is being spent dealing with an irresponsible dictator regime that actually has benefited from any of the sanctions, threats and even a military air strike will strengthen the regime by giving itself a purpose to stay in power as the Iran-Iraq war was n insurance for 30 years of the Islamic Republic in power
    instead we must focus on a more permanent and logical solution, regime change
    millions of people in Iran are risking their lives everyday to protest against the ruling regime, as an iranian know that over 90% of all Iranians want a secular democratic regime in power, the under 30 generations hate Islam more than anything else, thousands are converting out of Islam to other religions every year, most of the mullah also see the continue of this regime leading to more anger against them & Islam and predict a mullah killing genocide and they also want the separation of religion from politics ASAP,
    considering all of thie, regime change should be the top options while using the nuclear issue as a way to further pressure the rulling system
