Has the door closed on diplomacy between Iran and US? | Inside Story



Iranian president calls new US sanctions against Tehran ‘idiotic and dangerous.’

‘The White House has lost its mind.’
That’s how Iran’s president Hassan Rouhani described the latest round of US sanctions against his country.
The new measures target Iran’s Supreme Leader and his military chiefs, denying them access to financial resources.
The sanctions are designed to punish Tehran for what the US calls its destabilising activities in the Middle East, and prevent it from developing nuclear weapons.
But Iranian leaders say Washington has closed the door on diplomacy.
So, do sanctions work? And what’s needed to break this cycle of escalating rhetoric between the two sides?

USA likes puppet regimes in the middle East. The President of The United States who is called the most powerful man in the world is in actuality most weak person. He is a puppet himself sorrounded by most corrupt and selfish warmongers who are misguiding the current lunatic in the white house.

Like it or not,Iran is already at war with the US.

1979 US Embassy invasion and hostage seizure = act of war
Two US embassy bombings = act of war
1983 Marine Barracks bombing = act of war
1996 Khobar Towers bombing = act of war
Iranian IEDs,arms and training to Afghan and Iraq insurgents = act of war.
Saudi ambassador assassination plot = act of war
Numerous Non-Proliferation Treaty violations,engaging in nuclear weapons work. Discussion of nuclear EMP attack on the US.
Training and arming the Taliban in Afghanistan,to fight against US troops.

Who ever can't see iran is moving closer to israel to attack them and are also trying to rule the middleast are naive.
Iran is a very cunning country sneaky as a fox in a hen house.
The U.S. government tolerate alot but if you enrich uranium for bombs after u sign a deal your gonna cop it.
Iran probably has facilities all over the country to make nukes, underground etc.that are secret, otherwise, they wouldn't have signed the deal with obama, and just give up there nuke building to trick the world.

Maaan? Nuke, that "granny panties headwear" wearing dust might, fool – already. That culture is obsolete, and persisting with the B.S. is going to lead to their end.But they think they're still in the running for world domination (Islam rule). Out of touch with reality! Still living in religious-theory twilight zone time. Seeing such crazies go about, one begins to appreciate what Hitler "had-to" do. And then they want to complain. What does jewdism, Islam, and to a lesser degree christianity teach about world rule through blood shed. And for that matter, what does it teach concerning race? Now think,… Read more »

Does anyone else out there recall hearing this script being read out before? Prompt ; Iraq, Libya, Sierra all bombed and invaded by Big Bully killing over a million ordinary peoples and yet no nukes or equipment ever proved to have existed? Well to be fair Big Bully cannot allow Iran to have Nuclear weapons like Pakistan, home of Bin Laden because then Big Bully may have to think twice about invading Iran to take control of its huge oil reserves not to mention the trillions Big Bully's weapons industry is keen to make out of a soft targets thousands… Read more »

if a student is reprimanded and he does the same thing again after being reprimanded do you the institute would expel the student but will it tell other institutes not to enroll the student in their institute simple as that stay aloof and isolate them and do not bother and leave them to fend for themselves this is nothing but ego problems of some people on how their mind thinks which is an old age practice
