I actually don't have transformative hopes derived of the Good News From Out Vienna this morning. At best the current nuclear agreement with Iran will head off (temporarily let us remember) a disastrous nuclear arms race in the region and possibly just possibly empower the sectors of Iranian society that do not see themselves as Allah's Cannon Fodder. More than that seems utopian for a region that is a mortuary for High Hopes. The basic policy of the USA in the region remains the same, our powder is dry and our word is good. So with that in mind the really edifying part of the story will be listening to a bunch of cowardly in the rear with the gear ChickenHawk republicans scream "Appeasement" and "Munich" at the top of their lungs. That much will be fun for a little while at least....
