    Does Iran represent a nuclear problem or a gas problem?

    It is said that there are always two reasons for people's behaviour: the reason they give, and the real reason. Throughout history, religious and political reasons have been invented to justify struggles for natural resources: firstly land, and secondly resources passing through or embedded in land.

    “No one will be able to crush Iran”

    NORTH CAROLINA - One has to speculate: What is America’s overseas cause now? In World War II it was the defeat of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis, and also of Japan, which had attacked Pearl Harbor.

    EU acts in light of Trump’s sanctions against Iran

    At the beginning of May, we heard the surprising news that the U.S. had decided to exclude itself from the Iran Nuclear Deal and intended to once again launch new sanctions against Iran, secondary sanctions had previously been suspended under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

    Washington-Brussels parallel talks over the JCPOA

    Recently, French President Emmanuel Macron has taken a controversial position on the nuclear deal with Iran. On a telephone call to Hassan Rouhani, the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, which was 48 hours after the official announcement of Trump’s withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), he stressed his commitment to the nuclear deal, and in turn, he asked Iran to be committed to the agreement.

    NORTH CAROLINA - The Chinese suggestion that “May you live in interesting times” is now fulfilled, it appears. Who made current times most interesting, in some respects like never before since World War II, is a lame minded Donald Trump this Spring, plunging the thoughts of many across the world into chaos and trepidation.

    How Iran might benefit Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the JCPOA?

    Iranians are justified in being angry about Donald Trump’s decision to violate the terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the Iran nuclear deal. After all, Iran has kept to its obligations; thanks to Trump, the United States has not.

    Who does Pompeo think he is kidding?

    Mike Pompeo, the new U.S. Secretary of State in the Trump administration, has this week made radical demands upon the sovereign and significant and thousands of year old state of Iran (or Persia, as you will) and its 90 or so million people that, in effect, can either make a sane and reasonable person do one of two things, or both: Be rolled with uncontrollable laughter and/or curled up into a ball of lachrymose despair. And I alone, as a U.S. citizen, am not alone in thinking so inside the U.S.

    U.S. withdrawal from nuclear deal: Unsettling implications

    The U.S. withdrawal from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal between Iran and the leading world powers, which has lifted sanctions in exchange for verifiable limits on Iran’s nuclear program, has created a whole host of problems, not just for Iran but for the European Union (EU) member states.

    Who Are Tom Cotton’s Advisors?

    CHICAGO – Senator “Tom Cotton” has become a 99controversial figure in the U.S. Congress since 2014. This trend has been strengthened since 2016, along with the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States. Cotton is a graduate of Harvard University (Law School) and was a U.S. soldier in the Iraq war. He is currently nominated for the post of CIA Director after “Mike Pompeo”. The support of AIPAC lobby and other Israeli lobbies in the United States have strengthened this trend.

    Lies of mass destruction

    Seeing Benjamin Netanyahu stand up there and lie about Iran's "nuclear weapons program" was one of the worst performances ever given. A grade school drama production could have done better. And would have been more convincing because children are better able to believe in fantasy, especially the fantasies they tell others.

    Shias of Parachinar – victims of Takfiri terrorism and govt apathy

    Nestled high in a remote, mountainous region of Pakistan, not many people would have heard of Parachinar – described widely as the ‘heaven on earth’ for its scenic landscape. During the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan in 1970s, it was used by Americans and Saudis as training ground for militias fighting the Soviets. The same militias later gave birth to the Taliban.
