As our diplomats claim that the “infrastructure” of sanctions remains intact for at least six months, Asian and European firms are already cutting deals with Iranian counterparts as if the sanctions are gone. Some, in fact, really are. Like the lifted-in-Geneva ban on insuring Iranian ships — a major reason that Iran’s oil exports had screeched to a near halt.
