My, how the tables have turned.
It used to be that the Obama administration gave Iran deadlines on reaching agreement on nuclear fuel reprocessing. The most recent deadline was December 31.
None of those deadlines meant anything, as the Iranians figured out long ago.
That’s the problem with deadlines, which Obama hasn’t learned. Deadlines only mean something if the failure to meet the deadline has consequences.
Now the Iranians have given us a deadline to reach agreement on their terms, or they will simply ramp up their own nuclear fuel production:
Iran warned on Saturday the West has until the end of the month to accept Teheran’s counterproposal to a UN-drafted plan on a nuclear exchange, or the country will start producing nuclear fuel on its own.
Somehow, I think the Iranians will put more weight behind their deadline to us, than we have put behind our deadlines to them.
