Easter is the Bomb

 As you all know
Easter is just around the corner and you know what that means.

Endless posts in this blog world
concerning nuclear proliferation!


I KNOW!!
It drives me crazy too.

Speaking of Nukes.....
today there was some good news out of Switzerland,
where the talks between the U.S. and Iran
have John Kerry and President Obama smiling like kids in a candy store.

It's not all said and done, yet
but at least there is some hope.
They call it a "framework,"
and all involved, at least concerning the U.S. point of view
say it's a step in the right direction.

While these talks were going on in Switzerland,
my daughter, who works for Global Zero as their campaign director
was in Athens, Greece
taking part in a few talks of her own. 

Ok, here's what I know.
It's been over 35 years since Iran and the United States
have had a meaningful discussion
about anything.

Last week my daughter flew to Athens
for some No-Nuke meetings.

Today....
the big news is
the U.S. and Iran have made progress,
have agreed on a framework of ideas that will basically assure the world
that Iran won't be able to "build the bomb."

Do you see where I'm headed here?

Iran/U.S. not speaking for years?
Last week my daughter fly's  to the EU?

Today...progress.
That's all I'm saying.

I hope you have a great Easter.

Perfect picture... expresses my feelings about the negotiations in Switzerland. We definitely don't ever want any of those mushroom clouds anywhere in the world. Happy Easter!
