    Obama and the new Cold War in the Middle East

    The stand off between Iran and Saudi Arabia represents a new kind of Cold War between Sunni and Shia Islam. It's dangerous anyway, but lack of leadership from Obama is making things much worse

    How North Korea made the disastrous Iran deal inevitable

    By any account, the Vienna negotiations were an unqualified success for Iran. The reason for that is simple: America’s failed bipartisan North Korean policy set a model for would-be proliferators on how to negotiate one’s way to a nuclear weapon

    Hiroshima is nothing for us to be ashamed of

    America was right to use the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and then Nagasaki. Japan had it coming. And the real lesson to learn is not that nuclear weapons should be abolished world-wide, but that we should use all means necessary to stop dangerous regimes such as in Iran from ever getting hold of them

    Kerry's disrespectful mocking stance on Israel, and Congress

    Kerry is more concerned with the sensibilities of undemocratic Islamic countries than with the legitimate powers of Congress. His mocking, disrespectful remarks about Israel and Congress may be a sign of subconscious insecurity about the shaky deal he has reached with Iran

    The Iran deal: It's Munich all over again

    In Western diplomacy’s darkest chapter since the Munich agreement, the Iran deal legitimises Iran as a nuclear threshold state and strengthens a regime committed to murdering, terrorising and Islamising its opponents. Hard to see how this deal could be any more foolish or reckless

    Iran deal: Obama's global multiculturalism gone mad

    It's official. The Iran deal proves beyond doubt that Obama's central foreign policy ambition is to leave the world a more dangerous place than he found it. It is global multiculturalism gone mad

    Mehdi Hasan's Iran Death to America whitewash

    Leftist pundit Mehdi Hasan has produced a garbled whitewash of Iran's Death to America agenda. But the truth is that the anti-American agenda is based on historical falsifications that many Westerners have simply internalised, as Potkin Azarmehr explains in this fascinating expose

    Has Obama given up on Iran... in favour of golf?

    On one of the most important strategic questions of our time, Iran's nuclear ambitions, it appears that President Obama has given up. As a sign of his priorities, however, he is playing an extraordinary amount of golf. So now we can all relax, right?

    Barack Obama's MidEast fantasy world

    In Barack Obama's fantasy Middle East, the U.S. isn't losing the war against ISIS, Iran isn't a problem, and relations with Israel are just fine. That's the good news. The bad news is Obama actually believes this and he's still with us until January 2017

    Is epilation Haram? That is the question

    You might have thought Iran had enough things to worry about what with sanctions and a planned nuclear deal. But no. The big issue now is banning female epilation!

    US Congress on collision course with Obama over Iran?

    Anyone who thought that Barack Obama's deal with Iran on its nuclear programme was done and dusted didn't reckon with Congress and doesn't have a feel for the complexities of the US Constitution. Thankfully, Congress may make it very hard for Obama to push through a bad deal

    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
