Trump vs Iran

by Steve MacDonald October 15, 2017

In a piece over at The, two writers outline why Mr. Trump’s Iran Speech matters. The Obama deal was a sham with a payoff. President Obama promised that on his watch Iran would not get nuclear weapons. Obama achieved this by cutting a deal that effectively paid off Iran upfront to delay a nuclear […]

Quick thought – Nuclear non-proliferation?

by Skip September 25, 2017

SHOT: Non-proliferation is dead in Northeast Asia, and Chinese support for North Korea helped to kill it. CHASER: Wait until someone says the same thing a world away: Non-proliferation is dead in the Middle East and Obama’s support for Iran helped to kill it. I do so hope that Trump decides put the US out of […]

Nikki Haley Comes Between Iran and It’s Nuclear Program

by Steve MacDonald August 26, 2017

UN Ambassador Nikki Haley has been working on Iran Nuke-Deal oversight, with a focus on compliance. The US doesn’t think Iran is following the deal to the letter. Iran thinks the US is trying to undermine the IAEA Inspectors by meeting with them and wants the Inspectors to keep mum. No one entirely trusts anyone, and […]

Get a Better Grip on the Convoluted War In Syria

by Steve MacDonald April 8, 2017

This video is from Ezra Klein and Vox, but it is worth watching. They do an excellent job of explaining the timeline and who is involved with whom for what apparent reasons. It also adds some interesting fuel to the Obama/Deep state Russian influence narrative: the US and Russia have been fighting on opposite sides of […]

Blog Question of the Day to all you Multiculturalists out there

by Skip June 20, 2016

If All Cultures Are Equally Valid, Can Iran Kill Gay People? The core of the Left’s slobbering love affair with “Multiculturalism” holds that no culture is any better than any others.  Especially when it comes to their protected identity groups.  Seeing that the LGBT community currently sits atop their totem pole (disclaimer: which WILL change any […]

About those “Marine” Castaways captured in Iranian waters. So how did they get more than 70 miles and 90 degrees off their course, (some “short cut”) which at their speeds of more than 40 mph would have taken over an hour one way, and fall into the 12 mile limit of the Farsi Islands claimed […]

From Commentary Mag: Leaving aside the terrible damage the deal does to U.S. security and the stability of the Middle East, the most far-reaching effect of the deal is that from now on Democrats own Iran. From this moment forward, every act of Iranian-sponsored terrorism, every instance of Iranian aggression and adventurism as well as […]

What will US Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) and US Congresswoman Annie Kuster (D-NH) do?  What WILL they do?  Will they continue to support Obama in this utterly disasterous treaty “executive agreement” on ideological Party lines with rose colored glasses in hopes that a country that has been screaming “Death to America!!” and actually bringing death to […]

Is Obama’s Iran Deal Actually about Oil?

by Steve MacDonald July 16, 2015
Thumbnail image for Is Obama’s Iran Deal Actually about Oil?

Part of the deal with Iran would lift sanctions and allow the sponsor of global terror to sell its oil in the open market. One estimate (see below) suggests it could add at least 1 million barrels a day to the global supply. Great for the gas pump but what it that is enough to drop […]

We all agree with Dennis Lintz (see his letter of 3/18/15 in the Laconia Daily Sun, that we don’t want war with Iran, or anyone, and that we hope for a wise treaty with Iran that prevents them from ever getting nuclear weapons.
