    WASHINGTON — After more than a decade of stalemate and threats, the clock starts Monday on the six-month initial phase of a deal that negotiators for Iran, the United States and five other world powers say could lead to a permanent agreement to defuse tensions over Iran’s nuclear program.

    Beginning Monday, Iran agreed to take steps to curtail some aspects of its nuclear program in exchange for $7 billion in relief from economic sanctions that the U.S. and its allies have imposed on the Islamic republic.

    The measures are intended to build confidence between the two sides that a permanent deal would be respected by both and won’t be used by the Iranians to get closer to building a nuclear weapon, as the United States has accused them of doing.

    But reaching a permanent deal — and removing from the world’s problems the threat of a military strike against Iran — is not a certainty. Hard-liners in both countries oppose the interim deal, even as the Obama administration and supporters argue that it marks the first time Iran has agreed to limit its nuclear program.


    If IRAN should get the bomb when the next Republican president takes office he will blame Obama from this. Just like George Bush blamed Clinton for North Korea when they got the bomb. Cause that's what Liberals do. They make appeasements and be nice to tyrants. Just like Madame Albright was so nice to Kim Jong II and gave him an autograph basketball from Michael Jordan.
