    R: "France, Germany, the US all wanted this LEU removed from Iran, and Iran needs the 20% enriched for medical isotopes. So why not complete the deal? " Because "the deal" as it stands now is that Iran hands over all its processed uranium in exchange for a promissory note from the Europeans that they will enrich that uranium and return it to Iran. The problem is obvious: Iran runs the risk of being dudded on the deal i.e. its uranium can disappear over the horizon, never to be seen again. Promissory notes are no good if you don't trust the person who issued it, and the Iranians (with good reason, I'd suggest) are suspicious of a "deal" whose bone fides amount to "tust us, OK?"
