London, 19 Sep - Even though North Korea is making all of the nuclear-related headlines right now, we should be more worried about Iran’s nuclear programme, according to a political activist.

Keyvan Salami wrote an op-ed for The American Thinker in which he outlined why Iran’s nuclear program is more dangerous than North Korea’s.

Whereas North Korea is concerned about defence and is not focused on taking over the world, Iran wants to export its “revolution” across the Middle East and indeed already does so by meddling in the affairs of other countries (like Iraq and Syria).

London, 16 Sep - Supporters of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal have consistently claimed that it is a good and well-negotiated deal. They said that it is essential for world peace and security and that is why most of the world supports it. They dismissed claims from critics of the deal that it would not stop Iran.

Even when the nuclear talks were taking place, President Obama really had to sell it. Not just to the public, but to Congress too. He maintained that there was no other way to limit Iran’s nuclear plans.

London, 12 Sep - Donald Trump is currently considering a more aggressive US policy towards Iran and its proxies groups across the Middle East, according to six current and former US officials.

This policy suggestion was proposed to Trump by Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, national security adviser H.R. McMaster and other top officials at a National Security Council meeting on Friday.

The sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that this proposal could be made public by the end of September.

London, 11 Sep - The Czech Republic has rejected a bill that would lift the nuclear ban against the Iranian Regime.

The Czech Parliament’s lower house (Chamber of Deputies) has rejected a proposal to abolish the ban on Czech companies selling equipment to Iran for its nuclear plant.

The main supporters of lifting the ban were the Czech Communist (KSCM) and Socialist (CSSD) Parties, while the main opponents were the Conservative parties.

In order to pass, the proposal needed 66 votes out of 130 but only achieved 47.

London, 11 Sep - US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley delivered a thoughtful and impassioned speech on the threat posed by the Iranian Regime and the future of the nuclear deal, last week.

In the speech, Hayley addresses that there are three main things to consider when talking about the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA); the deal itself, UN Resolution 2231, and the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act (“the Corker-Cardin law”).

The Nuclear Deal

Hayley points out that the deal is flawed (for example, it does not have the capability for anywhere/anytime inspections) but that Iran has still managed to violate the lax provisions that it has.

She said: “In February 2016 – just a month after the agreement was implemented – the [International Atomic Energy Agency] discovered Iran had exceeded its allowable limit of heavy water. Nine months later, Iran exceeded the heavy water limit again.”
