This is a very interesting article by Russia Today on Wendy Shermanthe chief US negotiator with Russians. The article is right in pointing out that the two main agreements she has negotiated with North Korea and Iran have ultimately failed. Only ultimately of course, because for some time they have stopped the course to war against Korea and against Iran. They have failed because there are two parties in the US, the far Right Party, semi-fascist Party of War (now represented by Trump, Netanyahu, Pompeo, Bolton etc.) and the Party which wants some kind of peace, without of course resigning from fundamental capitalist – imperialist interests (a division which has been permanent during the last century). The later party did oppose wars in Korea and Iran and to do it it used Wendy Sherman. As far as we don’t have some kind of Socialism in the US, the alternative to this (very unsatisfying of course) “Peace Party” is a Nuclear World War and the end of humanity.

Neither the Clinton-era Framework Agreement with North Korea nor the Obama-era Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) acted as the enduring restraints on nuclear proliferation that they were meant to be.
