A Break On The JCPOA Iran Nuclear Deal?


It is now reported that "talks are to resume," although most observers are not optimistic. But then today there is a report of a shakeup in the Iranian Revolutionary Guards hierarchy who seem to control the most serious of these things. Head of their intel, Taeb, has been removed, although it is unclear what this will lead to, despite noises he was too hardline and maybe a deal can be cut with these renewed talks.

Iran is a unitary presidential republic. In terms of political and civil liberties, Iran ranks 3rd. Citizens in Iran experience little to no civil liberties and political rights. Citizens are not free to express themselves and enjoy neither political freedom nor representative government.
