    The terrible price of appeasing Iran

    As a consequence of the deal on its nuclear programme, Iran has effectively received international legitimacy as a nuclear threshold state. It remains the world's leading state sponsor of terror, and it will now feel more emboldened than ever. In other words, they've played us like a violin

    Obama trusts ‘Word’ of ayatollahs in nuclear negotiations

    It is almost unbelievable that Barack Obama trusts Iran over nuclear weapons even as the country's leaders chant "Death to America", and openly say that diplomatic talks are a central part of the Jihad. Obama just doesn't get it, and puts the world in mortal danger

    The Caucasus, the EU, and the Eurasian Union

    When Tolstoy wrote The Prisoner of the Caucasus, he could not have foreseen a day when this extraordinary part of the world would become quite such a complex web. But he did know that nothing happens there without some kind of a fight

    Speechless on Iranian nukes

    The day Tehran decides to go nuclear, terrorism itself becomes exponentially more lethal, and a wave of nuclear proliferation will spread across the Middle East. Barack Obama just doesn't get that

    We must remain on guard: Iran is a real threat

    The West never really got to grips with the Iranian nuclear programme. But Barack Obama is no longer just guilty of a lack of leadership on the matter, he is actively leading the world in the wrong direction. Danger looms, and we must confront it

    Behind Obama’s love affair with Iran

    The murder of dozens of Jews in Buenos Aires 20 years ago by Iran-backed Hezbollah terrorists is being whitewashed in Barack Obama and the West's desperate policy of making nice with Tehran

    Obama helping terror go nuclear

    Iran is already the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism, How much more dangerous will Iran become when it gets nukes? But Obama seems far more concerned by Israeli construction of apartments in Jerusalem than a nuclear Iran

    Iran's love letter to Obama: Thanks for the nukes!

    The Islamo-fascist dictatorship in Iran has so many reasons to thank President Obama, and the wider West. Now, they've written a letter of love and thanks for allowing them to get nuclear weapons

    Iran, ISIS and Britain: Weakness with a cost

    While the Left loves to fall into the moral relativism of treating hardline Islamist politics as regionally acceptable, this cannot be the position of a country that gave the world the Magna Carta. Why is David Cameron sucking up to Iran?

    A coalition of the unwilling to defeat the Islamic State

    About eight million Iraqis and Syrians live in areas ISIS controls. It is the richest terrorist organization in the world, and has about 10,000 fighters. Building a coalition to destroy it is essential, but it’s going to involve some very strange bedfellows. Can Obama build a coalition of the unwilling?

    A stalemate: The least bad option in Iraq

    Perhaps the best option available to the U.S. in the ongoing Iraq debacle is one straight out of the Kissinger playbook: playing the role of a balancer

    Where is the Cavalry?

    A world without the US as global policeman will collapse into chaos. Many do not like talking about it like that, but it's true

    Not-so-revolutionary Rouhani

    Hassan Rouhani, Iran’s president, and his new administration want to save the Islamic Revolution, not reform it

    Where is the Iranian anti-nuclear "fatwa" that Obama is so fond of quoting? asks Iranian analyst

    Barack Obama is fond of referring to a "fatwa" against nuclear weapons issued by Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei to justify his trust in the nuclear deal. Trouble is, no-one has ever seen it and Iranian mullahs quote Obama as the source!

    Russia fights back, Western rights groups weaken

    The Russian government, along with China, Iran and other major violators of human rights, has adopted an aggressive defense strategy. Post-modernism has simultaneously weakened the human rights community in the West
