The mainstream media and politicians have emphasized Iran's hard power, military capacity and its army's role in the Middle East, which is part of Teh...
In his 'major' foreign policy speech in Washington, D.C., the presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump called the Iran nuclear deal "disastrous," saying that the U.S. negotiators undermined their own position by refusing to show that they were "willing to leave the table."
I found David Samuels' storyline -- that portrays Ben Rhodes, the President's Deputy National Security Advisor, as the Manipulator in Chief -- to be a work of fiction and extremely condescending to members of Congress and all others who supported it.
As some see Muqtada Al Sadr as both a political and militant proxy of Iran, his recent political revival may seem as though Iran sees to further expand its influence in Iraqi politics for strategic purposes.
Despite expressing doubts about America's relationship with Saudi Arabia, President Barack Obama recently flew to Riyadh. Yet again he sought to "reassure" the Saudi royals about U.S. support. In fact, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia raises the question: What are allies for? If the president wants to leave his mark on American foreign policy, he should put distance between America and its most counterproductive partners. Riyadh would be a good place to start. After all, he rightly criticized the Kingdom as among the many "free riders" on U.S. security guarantees. Washington and Saudi Arabia should move to a more normal relationship. There no longer need be the pretense of intimate political friendship.
Iranian leaders have breached both the resolutions and the nuclear agreement for the third time since the nuclear deal went into effect in January 2016. Iran has repeatedly test-fired, long-range ballistic missiles and laser-guided surface-to-surface missiles.

The possibility of peace will not occur unless we force it to occur, until then, we might as just watch Bart defy the impossible.
It's the year 2016; we are at an age where technology is a society constant. Life at this juncture is practically unimaginable without the technology we enjoy today. In particular, life would not be as it were if not for video games.
The political behavior of Iranian people is not always easily predictable or discernable. Even though there are hints as to the reasons why they voted...
The Islamic Republic of Iran has rejected proposals, from members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) as well as other major oil-producing countries, to discuss freezing of oil production in order to boost prices and tackle global oil surplus.
Russia and Israel have a long history of diplomatic and military collaboration in the Middle East, dating back to the Arab-Israeli war of 1948, when Israel's triumph over its neighbors was largely attributable to Moscow's military support.
From opposing the nuclear negotiations to impeaching key ministers, parliament made it increasingly difficult for Rouhani to fully realize his moderate political agenda -- until now.
The Syrian war is clearly un-winnable. With the Aleppo ceasefire, it is possible the US and Russia are waking up to this fact.
Last month I had the privilege of answering an interview from an Iranian research agency dedicated to studying acts of terror carried out against the Iranian people. By their count 17,000 Iranians have been killed in acts of terror over the last 3 1/2 decades. Quite an astounding number, isn't it?
