    Joe says “We will not let Iran acquire a nuclear weapon – period,End of discussion. Not on our watch.”

    “Not on our watch…”

    So keep kicking the can down the lane.

    Suppose the Mid East and Israelis in particular can sleep easy then. Nuclear armagedon not before February 2016.

    Translation. What he is saying is that there is a less than a snowball’s chance in hell that Iran will to agree to anything. But that the US needs to give Iran more time for Iran to breakthrough and test their first bomb. So don’t mess things up by reminding us of reality by imposing new sanctions. Moreover my boss (Obama) has a guarantee that Iran won’t publicly test a bomb (except in North Korea)until after the next presidential election. Biden forgot to wear the traditional form of communication used to contact his boss: a tin foil hat.
