    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: This analysis argues that Iran is steadily making progress towards a nuclear weapon and is doing so via North Korea. Iran is unwilling to submit to a years-long freeze of its military nuclear program as stipulated by the July 2015 Vienna Nuclear Deal. North Korea is ready and able to provide a clandestine means of circumventing the deal, which would allow the Iranians to covertly advance that nuclear program. At the same time, Iran is likely assisting in the upgrading of certain North Korean strategic capacities.... All in all, a major consequence of the VND is that the...

    With leadership like this that is either schizophrenic or pathological, or both, it's no wonder one hand doesn't know what the other is doing, or, worse yet, doesn't care How does an ideologue best make his case against nuclear proliferation in the midst of history’s most dangerous political atmosphere because of rogue nations possessing nuclear potential? This oxymoronic narrative of a nuke-free globe has been President Obama’s agenda as long as he has occupied the Oval Office and, disastrously, the media bought it and did everything possible to sell it to the American people. Precisely to further this wrongheaded agenda,...

    ...Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), however, objected, and said he was doing so on behalf of Cruz, who has spent much of the last week campaigning in New Hampshire where he is trailing businessman Donald Trump ahead of Tuesday's primary. Klobuchar slammed Cruz after McConnell's move, saying the Texas Republican was the only remaining hurdle to getting the ambassador nominations confirmed. "We ask him to remove these holds. He has not voiced any concerns about these individual nominees. He voiced concerns about unrelated policy issues," she said, noting that Cruz hasn't been in the Senate to object to the...

    Our leaders must stop focusing upon ISIS! ISIS entices but it is not the crisis! A potential nuclear Iran is the crisis --here and now --today! It is a truism that the most important thing is never the obvious thing—the enticing thing. Currently, ISIS is the most enticing topic in the world of talking heads. Yet even though ISIS entices, far more dangerous events are at play in the world: The coming of a nuclear Iran. Yet ISIS is of some importance. Despite all the well-deserved attention upon ISIS, however, the majority of media consultants miss the point entirely. ISIS...
  • World Leader Drops MAJOR Bombshell… Accuses Obama Of TREASON Live At The United Nations ????

    (Conservative Tribune) – Lost in the media hype surrounding the addresses of Presidents Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin to the United Nations General Assembly on Monday was a bombshell claim by the president of Argentina. President Christina Fernandez de Kirchener announced that her nation had been approached by an Obama administration official with a request that Argentina provide enriched nuclear fuel to the Islamic Republic of Iran in 2010. The official in question was Gary Samore, former White House Coordinator for Arms Control and Weapons of Mass Destruction, who did not dispute the seemingly outrageous claim and has been open...

    “Politics makes strange bedfellows.” That was 19th-century author/editor Charles Dudley Warner’s famous take on the vagaries and queer alliances that typify the so-called art of statecraft. But the odd lineup of forces on the recently concluded Iran nuclear deal takes some explaining beyond the truism embedded in Warner’s observation.The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) that was announced on July 14 is a deal that was brokered by the United Nations Security Council, the European Union, Iran, the Obama administration — and most importantly of all, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the private “think tank” that has been the...

    The Associated Press reports that world powers will announce a formal deal with Iran in Vienna on Monday. Though there are still minor details to be finalized, the two diplomats who spoke to the AP confirmed that a deal will be reached, though they “cautioned that final details of the pact were still being worked out and a formal agreement still awaits a review from the capitals of the seven nations at the talks.”

    VIENNA - Anyone who says it's all work and no play for the hordes of diplomats, officials, security agents, analysts and reporters who have descended on Vienna for what should be the finale of almost two years of Iran nuclear talks is dead wrong. As the manager of a local brothel said, when the Iran talks are in town, "business is booming". He declined to say who were his most frequent customers, but made clear that, as far as he was concerned, the longer the negotiations between Iran and six world powers drag on, the better. Some journalists are also...

    <p>With some lawmakers chanting "Death to the America," Iran's parliament voted to ban access to military sites, documents and scientists as part of a future deal with world powers over its contested nuclear program.</p> <p>The bill, if ratified, could complicate the ongoing talks in Vienna between Iran and the six-nation group — the U.S., Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany — as they face a self-imposed June 30 deadline. The talks are focused on reaching a final accord that curbs Iran's nuclear program in return for the lifting of economic sanctions.</p>

    State Dept. Spokesperson explains that Iran will meet the standards for nuclear materials possession it agreed to in November 2013, according to Joint Plan of Action (JPOA). MARIE HARF: A lot of nuclear experts have now started chiming in online as well. And I, to be clear, tweeted the exact same things I said in the briefing yesterday, so we can go back through that and I'm sure people have follow-ups... This type of stockpile, under the JPOA and exceptions, can go up and down, it is variable as long as at the end of the time period, in this...

    Painful truth: The really awful thing about speaking for this State Dept is all the spin one must do on behalf of the govt of Iran Frum wrote that yesterday. More than 24 hours later, Harf’s still shilling for our partners in peace in Tehran. To understand what this is about, re-read yesterday’s post about the growing alarm among western diplomats that Iran’s stockpile of enriched uranium has been increasing despite their promises to freeze it at a certain level. There may be an innocent-ish explanation for that related to the process of converting uranium into fuel rods; there may...

    Okay, so now it’s 20 years. President Obama informed Israel Tuesday via a TV interview: “Sanctions won’t do it, a military solution is temporary – the deal that we’re negotiating potentially takes a nuclear weapon off the table for 20 years.” If you’re keeping score at home, you may remember that the president had previously acknowledged to the world that it was legitimate to believe that Iran “in year 13, 14, 15,” of the deal would “have advanced centrifuges that enrich uranium fairly rapidly, and at that point, the breakout times would have shrunk almost down to zero.” And once...

    “Western officials and experts cannot quite figure out why,” notes the Times, despite the fact that UN inspectors have had “almost daily access” to Iranian nuclear facilities. These are the same inspectors we’ll be relying on to detect whether Iran’s cheating once the final deal is in effect. If they can’t tell why a stash of nuclear fuel right under their noses is growing, what don’t they know about projects that Iran has worked harder to conceal?As a preface to the news, here’s a suddenly memorable quote from this year’s State of the Union: “Our diplomacy is at work...

    Earthquake hits near Iran’s current nuke plant Russia announced on Monday that it would start construction this year on a second nuclear plant in Iran, according to regional reports. Russia’s Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation made the announcement early on Monday, stating that it will begin building a second nuclear power plant in Iran’s southern region later this year, according to Iran’s state-controlled Fars News Agency. Meanwhile, an earthquake struck Monday morning near the site of Iran’s current nuclear power plant in Bushehr, near where the second plant will be built. Iranian media outlets reported the quake as hitting a...

    US President Barack Obama tells Channel 2 in an interview that he can “demonstrate” that a “verifiable” agreement with Iran will be the best way to contain Tehran’s nuclear ambitions. “I can, [I] think, demonstrate, not based on any hope but on facts and analysis, that the best way to prevent Iran from having a nuclear weapon is a verifiable tough agreement. A military solution will not fix it, even if the United States participates. It would temporarily slow down an Iranian nuclear program but it would not eliminate it,” he says. Asked whether Israel may attempt a military strike...

    Amid accelerated international efforts to reach a nuclear deal with Iran, the UN atomic agency on Friday reported that work on an assessment of allegations that Tehran worked on atomic arms remains essentially stalled, according to The Associated Press (AP). The report from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) also reiterated that more cooperation is needed by Iran for full clarity on its present activities. Without it, the IAEA said, it cannot “conclude that all nuclear material in Iran is in peaceful activities.” Iran and the IAEA agreed in November of 2013 on a new attempt to probe the accusations....

    President says in Atlantic interview he cares so deeply about Israel that he's motivated to criticize continued settlement activity, comments from Netanyahu. WASHINGTON -- "Political forces" in Washington seek to provide the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with a rubber stamp for its policies, US President Barack Obama said this week in an interview with the Atlantic magazine. The interview, with the outlet's Jeffrey Goldberg, was published one day before the president is scheduled to address Congregation Adas Israel in Washington, where he is expected to outline his administration's plans to combat a rising tide of anti-Semitism across Europe....

    One hundred and fifty members of Congress – all Democrats and, among them, most of the small group of bitterly anti-Israel lawmakers – signed a letter supporting President Obama’s diplomatic efforts vis-ŕ-vis the Iranian nuclear weapons program. Authored by Reps. Jan Schakowsky (Illinois), Lloyd Doggett (Texas), and David Price (North Carolina), the letter exemplifies the hyper-partisanship that has driven the left wing of the Democrat party on this issue even as that wing has cried “partisan extremism” at the responses from Republicans. As if trying to prove Churchill right, this Iran Surrender Caucus, whenever presented with a choice between dishonor...
