Diplomats and ally nations weary of Obama's "agreement" with Iran

The United States interim six-month nuclear agreement with Iran had barely dried on the paper before the country’s "moderate" president, Hassan Rouhani, tweeted Sunday that "world powers," including the U.S., had "surrendered" to the "Iranian nation's will."

Surprisingly, few diplomats were taken aback by the comments.

The agreement will allow the Iranian regime to continue its advanced centrifuge program and develop a new nuclear facility at Arak. Over the objections of many, specifically Israel, President Barack Obama asked Americans to "give peace a chance."

Meanwhile, Rouhani said, “Our relationship with the world is based on Iranian nation's interests. In the Geneva agreement world powers surrendered to Iranian nation's will”

Many world leaders are criticizing the Obama administration claiming the interim deal not lead Iran to give up any ambitions of becoming a nuclear power.

Iran claimed publicly claimed that the agreement reached in Geneva last November is the first step in removing all sanctions, and that it virtually recognizes Iran's "right" to enrich uranium.

Those statements made in lieu of the UN Security Council resolutions banning such enrichment.

Now Obama has threatened to veto any new sanctions currently under consideration by Congress. He is standing by his pledge to allow the agreement to be honored despite all the Iranian rhetoric to the contrary.
He feels any new sanctions are a deterrent to further Iranian cooperation.

The president chooses to ignore the bipartisan support from the Senate where there are 59 co-sponsors of new sanctions which is nearly veto-proof majority.

No one will be watching these latest events closer than the State of Israel and their Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.
