As soon as they got their bomb they throw up their hands!

I don't know what to think. Is this as good as it sounds?

I hope it is at least a start. I am afraid to get too excited right now. :sign0089:

I'm afraid to get too excited right now too but I expected it in a way. There was only so far they could go with the amount of sanctions that were placed on them and being isolated from the rest of the world. Let's hope they continue to move in the right direction.

My bet is that they'll probably break it. It's happened before and the madman that leads them is still in power. I doubt he's changed at all.

Cuba has also been isolated from the world, and it too, continues to move in the right direction. Yet, it does not receive recognition, nor praise, nor a lifting of sanctions. It has made steady social and economic progress for decades (however, i do not approve of its system) yet it gets nothing.
