Remember the deal that we offered the Iranians? The one I thought looked so good for them? Well, they're tweaking us anyway. Rather than responding by the G8, they let the Israel-Lebanon War buy them a few weeks. Not to be slowed by a brand-new war, the United States has begun pushing for a Security Council resolution requiring the cessation of enrichment by August 31. Iran rejected the resolution out of hand, of course, and lets us know that they were planning on responding to the U.S. deal on August 21, anyway.
So now we have a firm date to watch. That's nice.
