As Rhetoric Intensifies, Iran Prepares to Ramp up Nuclear Enrichment

By INU Staff
INU - On Thursday, the Washington Free Beacon elaborated upon the provocative statements that Iranian hardliners have been making in the wake of this week’s United Nation’s report about Iranian compliance with the Iran nuclear deal, or Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, which was concluded last July and implemented in January. Although the report by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon certifies that Iran is so far upholding its essential obligations under the agreement, Tehran has taken umbrage with the fact that the document also criticizes the Iranians for violating the “spirit” of the deal through ballistic missile tests and other provocations.

Iran deal “no cause for celebration”

By INU Staff
INU - In his opinion piece for UPI on July 14, Struan Stevenson says that the first anniversary of Iran nuke deal no cause for celebration.

Mr. Stevenson, the former Conservative Member of the European Parliament (MEP) for Scotland, and president of the European Iraqi Freedom Association, goes on to say that the historic agreement made last July was, in fact, a missed opportunity.  He states, “It is exactly one year since the nuclear deal was signed with Iran. The ink had barely dried on the agreement on July 14, 2015, before it was being trumpeted as President Barack Obama's big foreign policy breakthrough, guaranteed to be the highlight of his rather lackluster presidency. But the deal was deeply flawed. Obama's spin-doctors mounted an impressive and sophisticated campaign to persuade the world that his administration had struck a groundbreaking pact with the so-called 'moderate' Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.”
