US officials were angrily rejecting the notion of revitalizing a nuclear fuel swap deal with Iran almost the moment the Iranian government proposed it, but experts are now pushing the Obama Administration to reconsider, saying the deal is worth pursuing.
Members of the Federation of American Scientists (FAS) say that the deal would be advantageous both as a humanitarian gesture toward Iran and as a way to break years of stalemate in negotiations by settling one of Iran’s biggest enrichment needs.
The deal, which has been kicked around since 2009, proposes swapping Iranian low enriched uranium for fuel rods to use in the Tehran Research Reactor, which produces medical isotopes needed for cancer research and which has been running low on fuel for awhile.
The deal was endorsed by the US in late 2009, then was agreed to by Iran in early 2010, which led to the US angrily condemning it and condemning Turkey and Brazil for convincing Iran to go along with the deal.

The USA cannot determine its own policy with regards to Iran. They have always taken their orders from Israel who will not let up until the regional strength of Iran is severely weakened by boycot or war. They do not care what damage is done to American prestigae around the world.
Obama has been castrated by the Lobby
The deal will be rejected. The US/Israel intent is regime change and destruction of Iranian civil society, as happened in Iraq. The US also wants the oil (or at least control of access to it).
The nerdy scientists just do not get it. This non-problem was not supposed to be solved!
The corporate rich that rule our Empire, are they not in perfect agreement with the corporate rich that rule Zionist Israel? So, how can it be said that one rules the other?
Remember, to run the scam, you need “heels,” villains, that is, bad guys. When you have one so well setup as Iran has been, you certainly don’t want to spoil all that hard work. Make ’em look bad, or even better, make ’em look worse. Etc. Poke ’em in the eye. Maybe they’ll react negatively and thus inadvertantly help you with the continuing smear-job.
Obama is such a lackey of Isreal that he is a disgrace to men (if he can loosely be termed a man)
balck , white and multihued..
What a heap of crap the Presidency of the USA has become.
You can't please someone who is bent on killing you.
