Iran agrees to stand down

Under pressure from the United Nations and the European Union, Iran has agreed to halt its uranium enrichment program. The agreement will remain in place while talks with the EU continue. Iran has denied that the enrichment program was a front for building nuclear weapons, but it’s widely believed that they want to secure those weapons for themselves. Now the EU needs to figure out what package of enticements will bring the situation to a more permanent resolution.
UPDATE: But apparently this article show that Jane’s Intelligence Digest thinks that Iran is just buying time until they have a fully functional nuclear weapon. In which case, this is a head fake. Via BOP News
