    We give them some relief from sanctions and they freeze their nuclear program.  They'll even be setting themselves back a ways by having to dilute some of their enriched uranium.

    If both sides hold up their ends then it allows for both sides to take a larger step, hopefully Iran dismantling their nuclear program completely in exchange for the end of sanctions altogether.

    •  Exactly. The fact that a deal was reached (0+ / 0-)

      at all after years of endless stop and start negotiations is significant. Success begets success.

    •  I would think past actions (0+ / 0-)

      are a predictor of current "good faith". Iran's violation of the UNSC resolutions would beg for proof rather than a ice and a promise before lifting 7 billion in sanctions.
