"What matters in the end is substance, and ... we are still a considerable distance apart," Ashton told reporters at the end of the two-day talks.

IRI is "probably" thinking that US can't attack Iran if it keeps enriching Uranium anyway, US can't even handle a 28 year old Kim Jong Un!

I am not surprised that there is no compromise!

It's the same miscalculation that a few people made before the IR, namely Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden.

Interesting excerpts from this article:

“I do feel as if Iran has inevitably been drawing lessons from how the world is dealing with North Korea,” said Valerie Lincy, executive director of the Wisconsin Project on Nuclear Arms Control, a Washington-based research and advocacy group. “I would imagine the lessons they’re drawing are not the ones the Western powers would like: That you can weather sanctions, and renege on previous agreements, and ultimately if you stand fast, you’ll get what you’re looking for.”

Cliff Kupchan, an Iran specialist at the International Crisis Group, a Washington-based nonprofit organization that works to resolve conflicts, said that while Iran does not want to be viewed as an “irrational cult state” like North Korea, it also sees the conspicuous absence of talk about regime change by North Korea’s adversaries in the current episode of heightened tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

“These guys are smart, and they’re shrewd,” Mr. Kupchan said of Iran’s leaders. “They’re well aware of what North Korea has gotten away with. They see that North Korea elicits fear and significant geopolitical ballast because it has nuclear weapons.”

N. Korea is IRI's hero. IRI is emboldened by N. Korea!

Isn't it time they support the people who were in the streets in 2009 seeking to topple khamenei? Wonder what niac has to say now.
