And, thinking about Iran… Q33 As you may know, the United States is currently in negotiations with Iran that would limit, for at least ten years, Iran’s ability to produce nuclear material. The deal would not end Iran’s nuclear program, but would delay Iran’s ability to produce enough materials to make nuclear weapons. In return, the United States and other Western nations would ease economic sanctions that have been imposed on Iran, and would eventually allow Iran to use nuclear power for other purposes, like energy. Do you think that this agreement will make a real difference or will not make a real difference in preventing Iran from producing nuclear weapons? * Will make a real difference ..................
