Iran Blinks?

Check out the Captain's Quarters for a little news and commentary.
Expect the Iranians to cozy up to Russia and especially China in the weeks ahead while dragging out the negotiations on this point. They will work to exploit any rift they can find between the two Asian giants and the West in order to play both sides against the middle. Once they see any daylight, the Iranians will push the gap as wide as possible in order to get back to doing its own enrichment. Only through constant vigilance will Iran stick to this deal -- and if that sounds a lot like Europe in the 1930s to you, it does to me, too.
