    Congress must demand a better deal

    http://thehill.com/blogs/congress-blog/foreign-policy/252735-congress-must-demand-a-better-deal The JCPOA postpones the nuclear menace, boosts Iran?s malignant activities, damages the security and interests of the pro-western countries in the Middle East, fails to bring stability to the region, and strengthens the ayatollah?s regime ? among the worst violators of human rights in the world.

  • The battle of perceptions

    If Iran develops nuclear weapons, it’s got everything. It already has enough rockets to destroy Israel in a surprise attack. It would not be dissuaded by the fact that about 1.5 million Israeli Arabs would also die. Islam provides heaven’s glorious consolation for Muslim martyrs

    Confrontation With Iran Is Inevitable


    Assuming, as this agreement does, that Iran will moderate its policies, renounce its hegemonic aspirations, reject its terrorist proxies and become a “normal” country is a dangerous gambit. The more likely outcome is an empowered regime, better equipped to pursue its regional interests and perfectly capable of building a nuclear bomb.

    The consequences of a bad deal with Iran


    So the real choice we are faced with is dealing with the consequences of military action or the consequences of a nuclear Iran. Neither is palatable, but the latter is far worse. If the real objective is stopping Iran from getting nuclear weapons, preemptive military action is now inescapable.

    The U.N.’s Gaza Report Is Flawed and Dangerous

    As a British officer who had more than his share of fighting in Afghanistan, Iraq and the Balkans, it pains me greatly to see words and actions from the United Nations that can only provoke further violence and loss of life.
