Given the amount of time which has elapsed between the start of negotiations with Iran and the present time, I agree with Dr Alf that the Obama negotiating tactics have failed and that new approaches designed to produce an acceptable deal more quickly are needed.

Donald Trump has lambasted Obama’s negotiating tactics with China and overall, so the Netanyahu government in Israel and the US Congress are right to take a new tack over the Iranian nuclear discussions because the evidence is that what has been tried up to now is failing.

Iran is suffering under the present sanctions, is economically weak, and should therefore be easy to pressure.

Obama and his hench-persons seem unable to grasp that fact and unable to press their advantage.
