The Iran Deal Deconstructed

-Ron Paul Institute
With so much spin being spun around the Framework Deal between Iran and the P5+1, RPI's Daniel McAdams goes point-by-point on what Iran agreed to give up in exchange for an end to the decades-long US, EU, and UN sanctions. The neocons in the US and their kindred spirits in Israel claim that Iran gave up nothing and will continue to build a nuclear weapon. Of course their own countries' intelligence services disagree, but that has never stopped neocon hyperbole. This deal, in the words of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, "does not block Iran's path to the bomb. Such a deal paves Iran's path to the bomb." Of course Netanyahu's Iran hysteria goes back to at least 1992, when he claimed that Iran was just a couple of years away from a nuclear weapon.
