From Reddit, in response to a photo of Biden and his 2 dogs in the Oval Office:
Q: Have president’s had other pets aside from dogs?!
A: yes, the last one had a Senator from Georgia

Biden's overtures to Iran have been strongly rebuffed. This is going to be the first real test of his foreign policy. Iran is starting to shut down international monitoring and issuing what amounts to ultimatums on sanctions. Biden needs allies in this...

I'm not so sure. Both countries want a deal, the problem is perception.
Remember the Cuba missile crisis? The US conceded to remove Jupiter missiles based in Turkey as part of the deal... but because the US feels that it can never be seen to back down on anything, this part of the deal was kept secret whilst basking in the glory of claiming the USSR had backed down.
The problem with this Iran issue is finding something Iran needs and secretly concede that whilst persuading Iran that it needs to publicly reverse it's nuclear strategy. It needs to do this whilst persuading Iran that it needs to go along with it and it needs to do this without the rest of us getting to know.
In the meantime Iran has issued a limited continuance of UAEA agreements. They have done this to allow time for discussions of the above strategy with the US.
The fly in the ointment, and there are always flies in the middle east, are neighbouring countries principally Saudi Arabia and Israel who find themselves strange bedfellows in their axis against Iran.
I wouldn't have bet on any progress with Trump in charge but Biden might just manage it. However Israel has enormous influence in any US government and they may well twist some arms for internal political reasons and you may be assured that any progress made in US-Iran talks will somehow be leaked to the wider world, after all it's a different world today than it was in 1962 and the players today tend to be less restrained by possible consequences.
As you say, Biden needs allies, unfortunately he has less capital to buy them with than his adversaries.

A lot of the rhetoric in Iranian political speeches is there for domestic consumption, and not really aimed at the US. Bringing the deal back and easing and eliminating sanctions are top of the list for most parties involved. Biden doesn't have to concern himself with Iran manufacturing a nuclear weapon; if Israeli intelligence determines they are close to accomplishing that, Israel will destroy their production facilities without even consulting the US. It's been planned out for years.

With any luck it will only be open long enough for the US to find the parents of all the children it removed.

Could you offer them a home instead?

Seriously, though, she's holding the President accountable. It's a shame Republicans didn't do the same when their guy held the Presidency.

Biden is putting new child migrants in the cages.

https://nypost.com/2021/02/24/white-...tes-hypocrisy/

AOC added: “It’s only 2 mos into this admin & our fraught, unjust immigration system will not transform in that time. That’s why bold reimagination is so impt. DHS shouldn’t exist, agencies should be reorganized, ICE gotta go, ban for-profit detention, create climate refugee status & more.”

Indeed. Only in the minds of the deluded Trump fans is Biden some sort of radical. Pressure from AOC can only be a good thing. Having said that, this new place is for unaccompanied child migrants (minors) to be held, rather than children taken away from families migrating together. At least families aren't being separated.
