    We do live in interesting times. So many things that many thought impossible or that would be for many years in the future have come to fruition during our life time. Hope that this will be another one.

    Now I know why it’s so hard to get an agreement on nuclear ambitions. We can’t even agree whether or not there’s an agreement.

    in light of president obama and s.o.s. kerry’s incredible work, it’s good to remember just how insane and wrong republicans always are–

    and “the news” will continue to elevate these nitwits as reasonable voices.

    If they weren’t close they wouldn’t be going on this late me thinks. Total wild speculation: the Iranian news agency (which I’ve seen Iranians say is well respected) might be correct and that the deal is done. What’s being worked on how is all countries need to have their final look at it and make sure it is announced by the appropriate parties within their countries. Dreaming?

    it’s past 2am there. perfectly reasonable that all the people at the table agreed to collective, “let’s sleep on it.” plus, no one would be able to speak well about it while sleep deprived, so i see this all as really good news.

    I already confessed how I am not suited to the job of diplomat – too nervous & hot-headed when it matters most;

    I am using all my reservoir in patience – so much is on the line and with so many ready to sabotage, the diplomats need all our support and understanding

    We’re damned to hell. On Dateline London, the journalists are commenting that the jockeying for the 2015 elections have started now, in 2013. Definitely our fault, compounded by the PM candidate debates in the last election.
