Iranians at a huge Tehran-sponsored Islamic Revolution’s rally publicly hung a dummy of Obama. an event that critics say underscores the absurdity of the ongoing diplomatic effort.
According to Fox News, the U.S. and Iran are trying to reach a final nuclear agreement by a March 31 deadline against a backdrop of ongoing anti-American hatred in the Islamic republic.
Hundreds of thousands of Iranians marched the streets with the Obama dummy hanging from the gallows chanting “Death to America” and “Death to Israel.”
They also burned and trampled an American flag.
Negotiations were set to be discussed between the U.S. and Iran, and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry joined the negotiations.
Part of the negotiations were for the Iranians to good and they will let them have more access to uranium, according to Yahoo news.
The idea would be to reward Iran for good behavior over the last years of any agreement, by gradually lifting constraints on its uranium enrichment program imposed as part of a deal that would also would slowly ease sanctions on the Islamic Republic.
The U.S. initially sought restrictions on uranium lasting for up to 20 years.
But now the Obama is offering a deal similarly phasing in measures to ease the sanctions burden on Tehran.
According to Yahoo news, several steps would come immediately through executive action by Obama.
Other penalties would be suspended, but not lifted, as Iran demonstrates its compliance with its obligations.
A lesser amount of restrictions would stay in place until Congress acts to remove them permanently.
