Iran cannot trust this deal out of common sense

Reader comment on item: Obama's Iran Deal Has the Makings of a Catastrophe

Submitted by myth (Germany), Jul 16, 2015 at 06:02

Obama can veto the deal through Congress. What he cannot do is convince Iran this deal will last the 10 years against a growing majority in Congress awaiting a different president. I conclude Iran cannot trust this deal out of common sense, not out of ideological thinking.

Ambition writes documents, makes speeches, but cannot substitute for a substantial majority.

The Euro-Group made a similar deal days ago with Greece. There is no majority in the Euro-Group for funding Greece. Neither is there a majority in Greece to implement the conditions.
