    Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards unveiled an underground missile base at an undisclosed Gulf location today, Iranian state media reported, at a time of heightened tension between Tehran and the United States. 'The base is one of several bases housing the Guards' Navy's strategic missiles,' the state media quoted the head of the Guards, Major General Hossein Salami, as saying. Scores of military trucks equipped with the anti-ship weapons were seen lining the walls of the underground tunnels of the secret base. Last year, the Guards said Iran had built underground 'missile cities' along the Gulf coastline...

    TEHRAN, IRAN — Iran's government abruptly raised gasoline prices and imposed strict rations early Friday prompting large protests in major cities across the country with angry crowds calling for the ouster of President Hassan Rouhan. The price of fuel has been increased by up to 300 percent in some locations exacerbating the fears of protesters already struggling under extreme economic pressure as its economy worsens under U.S. sanctions.

    Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani traveled to the city of Yazd on Sunday to deliver a speech about Iran’s economy, the oil sector and to express sympathy with earthquake victims. He also revealed massive allegations of corruption. In a rare rebuke, the president attacked the oil minister and demanded to know where $700 million in funds have gone, and slammed the judiciary and the Central Bank over a separate $2 billion corruption case. Rouhani began his speech with good news, arguing that since April, the economy of Iran has stabilized, despite difficult pressures from abroad – a reference to the US...
  • Fmr. Kerry Aide: Iran Should Not Be Required to Cease Terrorism Against U.S.

    Edward Levine, a Kerry confidant who formerly worked on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, lambasted the anti-terror mandate in a recent analysis for the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation. Requiring Iran to cease its terror activities against the United States could harm the negotiations over its contested nuclear program, according to Levine. “This language would mean that if, say, Hezbollah were to explode a bomb outside a U.S. firm’s office in Beirut, the sanctions would go into effect (because Iran gives financial and other support to Hezbollah) even if Iran’s nuclear activities...

    Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon said yesterday that Iran has built up a terror infrastructure in Central and South America from which to attack Jewish and Israeli targets in the region and as a base for attacking inside the United States. “The Iranians use diplomatic mail in order to transport bombs and weapons,” he said in a meeting with visiting Guatamalan President Otto Fernando Perez Molina, himself a former intelligence chief in his country. “We know that there are states in South America like Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua and Bolivia where the Iranians have terror bases, both in the embassies and...

    Iran is threatening to walk away from nuclear talks if Congress approves new sanctions against Tehran. In an interview with Time, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that “the entire deal is dead” if Congress passes new sanctions, regardless of whether they would only be triggered by the failure of the talks. “We do not like to negotiate under duress,” Zarif said. “And if Congress adopts sanctions, it shows lack of seriousness and lack of a desire to achieve a resolution on the part of the United States.” Lawmakers angry about the six-month deal struck with Iran have said...

    A copy of the “Brief of Defendant-Appellant” in the case of United States v. John Thomas Shipley has now been provided to Gun Rights Examiner by a source close to the former FBI agent convicted of dealing firearms without a license in April of last year. The brief raises several points of contention that are made all the more compelling in light of revelations reported in this column last week that a request for a 30-day extension by the defense after the government admitted to losing a full day’s testimony under highly mysterious circumstances. Among the issues the defense calls...

    President Barack Obama’s plan to close the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, will include the trial or release of the 250 detainees still held there, but the Yemen government has said 101 of those prisoners should be sent home. “We want our detainees back,” Mohammed Albasha, spokesman for the Yemeni Embassy in Washington, D.C., told CNSNews.com, adding that “a plot of land” has already been set aside for a center to rehabilitate the men once they are repatriated. Albasha said the rehabilitation program will include psychological counseling, religious dialogue, vocational training and arranged marriages. “By the time they leave...

    The United States will become a second-rate economic power unless it can match the educational performance of its rivals abroad and get more of its students to achieve at the highest levels in math, science and literacy. Virtually every politician, business leader and educator understands this, yet the country has no national plan for reaching the goal. To make matters worse, Americans have remained openly hostile to the idea of importing strategies from the countries that are beating the pants off us in the educational arena.

    ... SO, CNOOC vs USA, in short, is a war for oil, much the same with Iraq, but without the humvee or the jihad. If CNOOC takes control of UNOCAL, it will make it an owner of many big offshore petroleum operations, put threats to USA's energy security, provide a new cause for the rise of oil price : China is hogging its own petroleum and will not sell it to the world, and somehow an indication of USA's powers dwindling down.

    As we all are aware, China has once again threaten to use nuclear weapons against the United States. Well, lets do something about it. Today I wrote the following letter and email to my two senators and one congressman. See only three letters so little time and effort. Date: Dear Senator (Congressman), As you are aware, China has once again threaten to use nuclear weapons against the United States. I believe based on this we should end our MFN trade agreements with the communist country. It is unreasonable for US taxpayers to be paying China our hard earned money in...

    Aristide warns of 'thousands killed' if Haiti rebels capture capital By Marcus Warren in Saint-Marc (Filed: 25/02/2004) A small group of elite police and a bottleneck in the landscape are all that can stop Haiti's rebels marching on the capital.
