London, 22 Nov - When Donald Trump refused to "recertify" Iran's compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal back in October, he received a lot of criticism from the other signatories (Europe, Russia, China) politicians in his own country and even those in his own administration, who saw this as hastening Iran's drive to develop nuclear weapons.

However, the nuclear pact wasn't much of a deterrent in the first place. It only deferred Iran from legally developing nuclear weapons for a matter of years. Critically, the nuclear deal did not prevent Iran’s development of ballistic weapons, which they have been eagerly developing and testing since then, and used to threaten other countries in the Middle East, specifically US allies like Israel and Saudi Arabia.

London, 14 Nov - In January 2016, it was announced that the Iranian Regime had met its obligations under the 2015 nuclear agreement signed between Iran and the P5+1 countries and would be receiving its first round of sanctions relief.

This meant that hundreds of Iranian entities were removed from blacklists maintained by the United Nations, European Union, and the United States, from ‘private’ companies to individuals to government organizations.

We now know that Iran was in fact not meeting its obligations, which has led to Donald Trump’s decertification on the nuclear deal and a tougher policy on Iran.

London, 13 Nov - The Iranian Regime has rejected calls from the French President Emmanuel Macron to hold talks over their ballistic missiles programme, claiming on Sunday that the programme was purely “defensive” and unrelated to the 2015 nuclear agreement between Iran and six world powers.

This comes shortly after Macron expressed concern over Iran's ballistic missile program on Thursday- citing an Iranian missile fired at Saudi Arabia by the Iran-backed Houthis in Yemen earlier this month- and raised the issue of international sanctions related to Iran’s missile programme.

London, 10 Nov - The growing relationship between Iran and North Korea may prove to be the biggest threat to Donald Trump.

As the US gets tough on the two rogue nations through the imposition of further sanctions and a more confrontational policy, it may well lead to a stronger relationship between the ‘axis of evil’.

During his visit to South Korea, Trump urged the North Koreans to abandon their nuclear programme (which is being funded by Iran) rather than testing his patience.

London, 9 Nov - Last week, the CIA released nearly half a million al-Qaeda documents that had been seized during the 2011 Navy SEAL raid on Osama bin Laden’s Pakistan compound; many documenting the clear link between the terrorist cell and the Iranian Regime.

The 2011 mission, hailed as a success for eliminating Bin Laden and the uncovering of an incredible amount of intelligence on the terrorist group, is now being heavily questioned because the US failed to address the highly concerning relationship between Iran and terrorism before the 2015 nuclear deal was put in place.
