ScrappleFace: Iran Suspends Uranium Enrichment, E.U. Suspends Disbelief: “Iran Suspends Uranium Enrichment, E.U. Suspends Disbelief
(2004-11-22) — Iran today said it had suspended uranium enrichment as part of a deal negotiated with several European Union countries which, for their part, have agreed to suspend disbelief.
‘It’s like going to a stage play,’ said an unnamed French official familiar with the negotiations. ‘In the theatre we know that the people on stage are just actors but, for the sake of entertainment, we suspend disbelief. It’s make believe and we all feel good about ourselves.’
In addition to freezing uranium enrichment, Iran also announced it would destroy its stockpiles of sand.” – Scott Ott
