Are Iran, US headed for a new deal? | The Bottom Line

US President Joe Biden says he wants to restart negotiations on Iran’s nuclear programme, and Iran extended its permission for nuclear watchdogs.

This is the most progress the two parties have made since former President Donald Trump tore up the 2015 deal reached after years of negotiations, but there are no guarantees a new deal is imminent.

Cambridge University lecturer Dr Roxane Farmanfarmaian and Bloomberg columnist Eli Lake lay out the possible scenarios for Iran-US relations over the next few months.

  1. BEWARE: some of their rhetoric is conditioned by and is deeply embedded in the US and Western hegemonic imperialist project.
    Also Note: The Saudis and the Emirates are conducting a genocidal war against Yemen.
    Iraq invaded Iran and fought a brutal war against Iran using lots of missiles and chemical weapons, backed up to the hilt by the US and the Gulf states to destroy a popular revolutionary movement

  2. He says that the US is powerful enough to inflict a “terrible cost” on Iran: Draconian economic sanctions are illegal under international law. They constitute crimes against humanity.
    The use of the word ‘regime’ is designed to demonise, denigrate and delegitimise. The Iranian political system stems from the Shi’ite Islamic theological doctrine of Wilaayat al-Faqih’ – the Guardianship of the Islamic Jurist.

  3. Aljazeera is infiltrated by the CIA, they are no longer the hard hitting and truth telling news channel we have known and loved. They have brought in agents disguised as journalists and often bring in CIA paid "analysts" to spread the imperial US narrative and hegemony.

  4. American politicians are not trustable and they do not respect to their own signature. They lie they cheat and they do any possible dirty actions to win. difficult
    Do not forget we have hotel that is 450 years old means older than whole American history. Iran is not going to build nuclear weapon all of this is propaganda of Israel because can not tolerate a large and strong country in the Middle East. Israel has problem with Turkey as well and looking for a large country that includes large part of the Middle East. Iran is like a sharp bon that stuck in the throat of Zionists they can not swallow and they are not able to throw out.

  5. Al Jazeera: "Iran's support of trans-national terrorism"
    World record for creating and funding terrorism is held jointly by Qatar, Saudi Arabia and UAE, and world record for creating a smokescreen to hide terrorism is held by Al Jazeera. On the other hand, Iran holds the world record for killing terrorists.

  6. Doesn't matter what these expert says.

    God has spoken.

    Iran will gain nuke and will destroy Saudi Arabia

    Daniel 11:40

    40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come (rush) against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over.

    Revelation 18:8

    8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.

    Revelation 18:17-18

    17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,

    18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city.

    Revelation 19:3

    3 And again they shouted:


    The smoke from her goes up for ever and ever.”

  7. Roxane is either an Iranian mouthpiece ornis totally ignorant. To state that Iran has acted in accordance with ITS JCPOA, obligations is false and she should know that since several iranian officials , UN atomic energy agency , all of Europe have EITHER STATED OTHERWISE, seen or have FROOF TO THE. CONTRARY … SO PLEASE FIRE THOSE ON YOUR TEAM WHO BRING AMATURES as experts PROGRAM,

  8. You know America will not honor it. Even during the last Nuclear deal America broke there end of the bargain by putting sanctions on Iran. America has not honored any of their treaties. Iran would be stupid in doing so and develop the bomb. That is the only way Iran will have peace

  9. USA you used atomic bomb in Japan not Iran you and your Alliance biggest terror in the world how many human you killed in Iraq Syria Lebanon Afghanistan with your Dirty games

  10. We are arriving at a point where it really won't matter what the US and Iran political positions are. Iran's provocations through its proxies against Israel and Saudi Arabia are reaching a point where a major war is inevitable. Given Iran's determination to destroy Israel and dominate the entire region as a caliphate this will be a war with nothing held back. A joint flight today over the region with a US B52 with Israeli and Saudi jets leaves no doubt which side the US is firmly on. Russia and China would be insane to enter this war and risk nuclear war with the United States. Having studied the situation I believe Israel has the third largest arsenal of nuclear weapons in the world at around 500. Many are likely high yield thermonuclear weapons that can be delivered by Jericho II and III to any targets in the eastern hemisphere. Because of the nuclear blackout effect known since 1962 there is no defense against them. Because Iran and its proxies have many missiles aimed at US allies the strike will have to be sudden, massive and total coordinated to hit all targets at the same time.

  11. The only pursuit of the Iranian Islamic Regime is the guarantee that it will go on being the ruling regime of Iran. It is important to distinguish the difference between the will and aspirations of the Iranian people from the will and aspirations of the ruling Islamic regime. The regime and the people do have one thing in common. That thing is that the US must capitulate the M.E to Iran, its historic and rightful hegemony.
    Of significance only is the will of the US to continue its activity in the M.E for the sole purpose of continuing to syphon off the resources there in whichever way it can as it has done since WW2 and which underwrite its dollar currency against the will of the Iranian nation, historic freeholders of the entire M.E. Israel, the ruling despots of the Arabian Peninsula, the Islamic Regime of Iran are simply clouding the real issue and the one which needs to be addressed to avoid a possible nuclear war to come soon. See it any other way, you are wasting your time and putting the world in harm's way. Iran will become nuclear soon, it is unstoppable unless you know a force that can invade it, occupy it, and then indefinitely administer it. My only regret is that it is ruled by a theocratic, inept, Islamic Regime rather than a democratic ethical regime but then we only have the US' overthrow of its Mossadegh government of 1953 to thank for that. We are reaping what we sowed, and we must negotiate for time to ween the dollar off its dependance on the M.E resources with Iran the owner of them. We do not have the position for luxuries like a state which we can call Israel any longer and its nuclear stockpile will only lead to our end en mass. Planning permission for such a state should have been sought from Iran and not the British flyby night empire, and as it stands it is well and truly denied. Just because Iran was not consulted then because it was weak and under Allied influence by force, its will can not be negated, just like the Palestinian will cannot be negated but is. Its time that we took our heads out of our backsides and see the world for how it really is and study what we have built on the back of nuclear weapons and the threat of using them. It is only to be expected for a nation like Iran to rise and acquire nuclear weapons and challenge the imposition we have put on it and lands under its hegemony. It is only natural for Iran to acquire nuclear weapons and unshackle itself and the M.E from the incessant syphoning of its wealth by the US. What does anyone of sane and just consciousness expect? Nuclear weapons got us this world order and nuclear weapons will either balance the world order or destroy us all and that is the only topic of worth to consider and talk about, because Iran is about to acquire them.
