Iran - Is This Deal A “Win-Win"?

In Nuke news...It's official - we have a deal. Earlier this afternoon - representatives from Iran and the P5 +1 powers announced in Lausanne - Switzerland that they had reached an agreement over Iran's nuclear program. The deal - according to officials involved - will require Iran to go through regular investigations - enrich uranium only at or below certain levels appropriate only for producing electricity or medicine - and curtail its total number of centrifuges. Iran will also have to make significant changes at two of its more controversial nuclear facilities. In exchange - the United States and the EU will "terminate" all sanctions. Make no mistake - this deal is not final - and there are still details to work out - but it is a huge step forward.
