Iran quits dismantling nuclear centrifuges

Iran quit dismantling nuclear centrifuges in two of its uranium enrichment facilities, Natanz and Fordow, sending another subtle message to the West about the tenuous state of the forged deal, and dealing a blow to President Obama’s assurances of a new Tehran that honors its promises.   Just a week ago, Iran had sent out […]

Obama held hostage: How Iran’s using the nuke deal as license to go wild

Our World: The nuclear deal’s true purpose

It works out that US President Barack Obama’s signature diplomatic achievement, his nuclear deal with Iran, has nothing to do with preventing Iran from becoming a nuclear power or even with placing restrictions on Iran’s nuclear activities.   Just weeks after Obama led the international community in concluding the nuclear pact with Iran, the Iranian […]
