Two years after the Iran nuclear deal was signed, there are still many people who question its effectiveness. Some argue that it has slowed Iran’s progress towards a nuclear weapon, but many say that the restrictions imposed on Iran are limited. In any case, access to illicit facilities by inspectors has been denied by Iran, so it is impossible to say for sure how restricted Iran has been.

The Iranian regime for nearly four decades, has attempted to suppress Iranian dissention. Efforts to discredit or eliminate any group that opposes them include diplomatic pressure, mass arrests and imprisonment for participation or membership, and recently, attacks in news media and as well as on social media. 

Iran’s regime has created many online front groups, web pages, and blogs that are dedicated to discrediting any Iranian opposition group and give to the impression of a social media wave of support for its policies. Specifically targeted by these regime false fronts is the National Council of Resistance of Iran, an umbrella opposition group housing various resistance efforts such as the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI) or otherwise known as the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK).

09 August 2017

Henry Kissinger, the former US Secretary of State under Richard Nixon, has warned the Trump administration against allowing the Iranian Regime to take control of lands liberated from the so-called Islamic State.

The former top diplomat wrote an op-ed for CapX, in which he explained that the Iranian Regime’s only goal in helping to defeat ISIS has been to take control of the Iraqi and Syrian territory once ISIS has been driven back, which would allow the Iranian Regime to create a “radical Iranian empire” across the Middle East.

Iran Nuclear Deal: Implications of US Action

08 August 2017

EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs Federica Mogherini and other EU officials will be attending the inauguration of Hassan Rouhani, the Iranian president that has just been re-elected for a second term. The EU sees the 2015 Iran nuclear deal as an effective way of ensuring the security of the world. 

US President Donald Trump’s opinion of the nuclear deal could not be any more different. Even before he took office, Trump said that the deal was the worst he has ever seen and vowed to scrap it. He has not, yet, scrapped the deal but he is very well aware that Iran is not acting in accordance with the deal and has identified the country as the greatest threat to peace in the Middle East and beyond.

Iran Takes More Ground in Afghanistan as US Diminishes Presence

08 August 2017

The Afghan Taliban and the Iranian regime were once hostile enemies. However, this all changed after the US took action after the 9/11 terrorist attack and the enemies started to cooperate. 

This is similar to the situation in Iraq in 2003 – Iran did not mind the US invasion, but it proceeded to drain its resources once the US succeeded in toppling Saddam Hussein’s regime. This is when Iran effectively took control. Iraq was handed to Iran on a plate.
