London, 19 Jul - John Hannah and Saeed Ghasseminejad wrote an op-ed for Foreign Policy on why Donald Trump should kill the Boeing Deal if he really wanted to stop the Iranian Regime from posing a threat to US national security.

The pair assess that every business dealing with the Iranian Regime grows the Iranian economy, which might sound good until you realise that the extra money is funnelled almost entirely into strengthening their military might, including funding conflicts in foreign countries, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), and the ballistic missiles programme, rather than the welfare of the ordinary Iranians.

London, 19 Jul - The power struggle between the different factions in the Iranian Regime may have come to a head this weekend after the arrest of the President's brother and the conviction of an American student for espionage.

According to the Washington Post, both of these events were timed to embarrass Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani at home and abroad.

London, 15 Jul - When US Secretary of Defense James Mattis made remarks regarding the importance of regime change in Iran, it provoked extreme reactions from the Iranian regime.

Mattis’ recent remarks is another episode in a series of such statements. US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson first raised the issue of peaceful regime change at a congressional hearing on June 14th. On July 7th, John Bolton, former US ambassador to the UN said the solution for the Middle East is regime change in Iran. US President Donald Trump and US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, have made very similar statements.

London, 14 Jul - France was one the first countries to send business delegations and enter into new trade agreements with Iran following the implementation of the Iran nuclear deal, or Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

US President Donald Trump is famous for describing the JCPOA as “the worst deal ever negotiated.” As he joined his French counterpart, President Emmanuel Macron, in a press conference in Paris on Thursday, Trump said, “Today we face new threats from rogue regimes like North Korea, Iran, and Syria, and the governments that finance and support them.”
