That is if this news pans out.
The chief of the U.N. nuclear agency said Tuesday that he had reached a deal with Iran on probing suspected work on nuclear weapons and the agreement would “be signed quite soon.”
Yukiya Amano, of the International Atomic Energy Agency, said some details still needed to be worked out. But he told reporters that Iranian officials say that those will not stand in the way of signing the deal.
“(A) decision was made to conclude and sign the agreement … I can say it will be signed quite soon,” he said.
Amano spoke Tuesday on returning from Tehran, after talks on resuming a long-stalled probe into suspicions that Iran secretly worked on developing nuclear weapons.
The news just broke a couple of hours ago and I haven’t heard any additional details. But if they can pull this deal off, then odds are we may have avoided yet another crippling Middle Eastern war.
The bad news? The neocons will have nothing new to masturbate to.
Of course, that’s good news for the rest of us.
