London, 1 Aug - Heshmat Alavi, a human rights activist specialising in Iran, wrote an analysis of the Iranian Regime’s aggressive attitude surrounding their ballistic weapons programme for Al Arabiya in which he assessed that despite their posturing, the Iranian Regime is ready to collapse under pressure from the international community and their own people.

London, 1 Aug - The Iranian Regime is now subject to new sanctions following the recent launch of a satellite into space; as many speculate that this was not part of a peaceful space programme but in fact a test for their long-range ballistic missile programme.

Michael Tomlinson, wrote on Iran Lobby, that this was similar to the way in which North Korea developed its programme, which now poses a threat to the US.

London, 31 Jul - The Iranian Regime is threatening to use its ballistic missiles again and we should believe them, according to an Iran expert.

Michael Tomlinson wrote on Iran Lobby that he can see direct parallels between North Korea and Iran with their use of ballistic missiles, which Iran has been steadily increasing its production of for some time now.

He wrote: “For the mullahs in Tehran, their ballistic missile fleet represents their ace in the hole; a weapon platform that can reach far away enemies, threaten its neighbours and provide the ultimate leverage by carrying nuclear or chemical warheads. You don’t build a weapon system unless you are prepared to use it and the mullahs are prepared.”

London, 31 Jul - The Iranian Regime has vowed to press ahead with its ballistic missile programme at “full power” despite US Sanctions.

Bahram Ghasemi, Iran's foreign ministry spokesman, said that the Regime saw these sanctions as “an effort to weaken the nuclear deal," which was signed between Iran and the P5+1 countries (the US, the UK, France, Germany, China, and Russia).

Ghasemi called the sanctions "hostile, reprehensible and unacceptable", claiming that Iran had proven its compliance with the nuclear deal, which was supposed to lift some sanctions against Iran in favour of stopping Iran from working on nuclear weapons technology.

London, 29 Jul - On Wednesday, according to news reports, House and Senate negotiators reached agreement to get sanctions legislation against Iran, Russia and North Korea through the Senate without further amendments. This avoids the need for another House vote.

Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said, “Following very productive discussions with [House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy], I am glad to announce that we have reached an agreement that will allow us to send sanctions legislation to the president’s desk,” said “The Senate will move to approve the Iran and Russia sanctions it originally passed six weeks ago, as well as the North Korea sanctions developed by the House.”
