London, 26 Dec - Iran is on the march within the Middle East following the P5 + 1 nuclear agreement that brought billions in sanctions relief, which implies the Iranian regime is currently the most important threat to regional stability. Iranian proxies, that embrace Hezbollah, Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood and also the Houthis in Yemen, permit the Iranian regime to project force on an unexampled scale within the Middle East and emboldens different dangerous actors on the world stage.

The Middle East is in a shambles, as Iranian proxy wars and different wars dominate Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, mali and Egypt, at the side of a Palestinian war probably being around the corner. Now that the u. s. has recognized jerusalem as Israel’s capital and Turkish prime minister Erdogan has called Israel “a terrorist state,” passions are on the increase, which has allowed Iran to intensify its attacks on Israel and Sunni nations that disagree with its shia interpretation of Islam.

London, 20 Dec - During his visit to Washington, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian stated that France and the United States are determined to "vigorously" raise pressure on Iran over its ballistic missile program, including possibly through sanctions, according to a report by Reuters International.

On Monday, Le Drian was set to meet U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, as wells as White House national security adviser H.R. McMaster, and U.S. President Trump's special adviser, Jared Kushner. Le Drian, previously France’s defense minister, also planned to meet with Senators Bob Corker, R-Tenn., and Ben Cardin, D-Md., the top Republican and Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

London, 19 Dec - Even since Donald Trump decertified the Iran nuclear deal (aka Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action or JCPOA) in mid-October and asked Congress to decide whether to reimpose suspended sanctions, European leaders have lobbied American politicians in an effort to save the flawed deal.

The JCPOA came about because the world leaders who signed onto the pact (the US, the UK, France, Germany, China, and Russia) were either confused, naïve, or complacent about the dangers posed by the Iranian Regime.

Now, the world is facing grave threats from the Regime but those still in favour of the nuclear deal are refusing to recognise the dangers (and that the Regime’s malign behaviour is the result of decades of appeasement).

London, 19 Dec - Many are concerned with the idea that the USA may soon be at war with Iran and/or North Korea but confusingly, think that North Korea would be the most likely country.

At first glance, this seems legitimate because of the threat that North Korea poses to America’s Pacific allies, like Japan and South Korea, but unless there are some dramatic changes on the Korean Peninsula it is far more likely that the US will launch a military intervention against Iran.

Why? Well, war against North Korea would put South Korea in particular in severe danger, involve China unnecessarily, risk a nuclear weapons strike against the US, and has little support from the American people.

London, 7 Dec - US secretary of state Rex Tillerson said that pressure will continue to be applied to Iran over its nuclear deal commitments during a press conference in Brussels on Tuesday.

Tillerson was making a joint address with Frederica Mogherini, the European Union's high representative.

Tillerson said: "We discussed ... our joint efforts under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action [JCPOA] to hold Iran fully compliant with the terms of that deal and fully enforce that agreement."
