Russia-Iran Military Cooperation Agreement – Step Ahead to Strategic Cooperation

Russia and Iran have signed a military agreement. This is the first time an inter-governmental military cooperation agreement has been concluded in the centuries-old history of bilateral relations... It’s the first and only military cooperation agreement concluded by Iran with another country. It’s much more important for Iran than the implementation of the obsolete S-300 contract, something the US is concerned about so much. The US has not learned the lesson that Russia taught it by developing military ties with Egypt.

Iran: Coming out in the Open to Join First Line of Battle against Islamic State

...Iran realizes that Iraq turns into a springboard for launching an Islamic State aggression against Iran so it makes no secret of its involvement there anymore. The supreme leader of Iran Ali Khamenei says the activities of the US and its allies lead to split among Muslims instead of eradicating terrorism. Tehran believes that the only way to counter the threat is to make Iraqi Shiites join the fight against terrorists. The unparalleled in scale pilgrimage of Iraqi and Iranian believers to the Shia holy city of Kerbela is a telling example of Shiites’ unity...

What Makes US Reluctant to Solve Iran’s Nuclear Problem?

Another meeting of the «big six» with Iran is drawing near. Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Seyed Abbas Araqchi announced that the next round of talks on the country's nuclear program would be held in Geneva on December 17 to include direct contacts with the US delegation... The US-Iran contradictions constitute the main hindrance on the way to finding a solution to Iranian nuclear program. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a statement saying that Israel played a crucial role in torpedoing the peaceful settlement. This is just one of the reasons why the United States is not ready for productive result of the talks. There are other reasons as well...

US not Ready for an Agreement on Iran’s Nuclear Programme

A new round of talks on Iran’s nuclear programme could begin on 10 December. Started in November 2013, the annual marathon has still not reached the finish line. Both sides are hoping to have worked out the political framework for a future agreement by the end of March, and to have completed the signing of documents by July 2015. The essence of the as yet insurmountable differences is not exactly known, however. Most media reports suggest that the reason for the breakdown of talks is disagreements regarding the outline for the lifting of sanctions, the number of permitted centrifuges, and the fate of a reactor in Arak. However, the opinion that the White House is not ready or not willing to make strategic decisions on such a scale is more well-grounded...

Hagel’s Resignation is Obama’s Defeat

...The November intermediate election was a Republicans’ big win. For the first time since 2006 the GOP gained control of both chambers... It may be an exaggeration but the November 4 vote was viewed as a referendum that Obama lost. This is an undisputed fact. Chuck Hagel has joined the ranks of those who have lost faith in Obama. His resignation is another defeat of Obama in Congress... The Democrats called the election results «a personal defeat of Obama». The Hillary Clinton’s aides told her to keep away from the incumbent President. It means other officials may follow Hagel and resign soon. The number of Obama supporters in the administration may dwindle to unusually low numbers.

The War against the Islamic State and the Boomerang Effect for Europe

The US administration, which began airstrikes on IS positions in Syria on 23 September without UN Security Council approval, is steadfastly refusing to cooperate with the Assad government... According to the UN the number of foreigners in Iraq and Syria taking part in military operations is growing at an unprecedented rate and has already reached 15,000 people. This data is confirmed by US intelligence. The majority of these foreigners are European citizens. There are far fewer Americans, since the Muslim community is not as large there, but for Europe, which does not have borders or a strict border regime, the return of European fighters from Syria could be a trying time. No one in Washington is worried about Europe’s vulnerability to the ‘boomerang effect’, and they have absolutely no regard for regional stability in the Middle East.

Iran Nuclear Program Talks: Will it Ever Result in Final Agreement?

...The Obama administration believes that Iran should make peace with America and distance itself from Russia. Until now Tehran has not made anything to substantiate such hopes. Just remember the recent statements criticizing the United States and Great Britain made by Iran’s spiritual leader Ayatollah Ali Hosseini Khamenei. He accused these states of being behind the emergence of the Islamic State and the general instability in the Middle East. According to him, Great Britain is a «satanic state» which together with the United States and Israel works to deepen divisions between Shia and Sunni Muslims...

Pin-Prick Air Strikes Won’t Defeat Islamic State

The US fight against Sunni terrorist group called the Islamic State may turn into a full-fledged war... Republican Senator John McCain, a ranking member of the Senate, said the strategy was failing. «They're winning and we're not,» McCain said on CNN. «Pin-prick bombing is not working». McCain is right – the impact is limited, some military express skepticism over the efficiency of the ongoing air campaign... No matter massive air strikes delivered by the US-led coalition, the Islamic State keeps on expanding the territory under its control in Iraq and Syria...

Islamic State Created by United States

The battle flag is raised and waving. The United States has launched an air campaign against the Islamic State delivering strikes in Iraq and Syria. It is done without the permission of the Syrian government and the United Nations Security Council... The US put up with the Islamic State till it had been fighting the Syrian government forces. It was declared war on as soon as its armed formations invaded Iraq and proclaimed the creation of a new state... No doubt Syria will remain the main target for the United States as an element of the policy aimed at weakening Russia. The Islamic State was created by the United States; the goal is to generate a powerful destabilizing wave striking deeper into Eurasia. Now he US is clandestinely preparing the overthrow of Bashar Assad. That’s how many countries perceive the unilateral actions of Washington against the Islamic State...

US Pushes Iran To Red Line

Iranand six world powers (Russia, the United States, Great Britain, France, Germany and China) began an expert-level meeting about Tehran's nuclear program on Thursday, September 19, part of efforts to reach an agreement by late July on how to resolve a decade-old dispute that has stirred fears of a Middle East war. SeyedAbbas Araghchi, the Iranian Deputy Ministerfor Foreign Affairs, said before the talks kicked off that those serious differences remained but Iran hoped to achieve positive results with the 5+1 group and especially talking with the United States, Russia and China. There are clear signs that Iran is not prepared to pay any price. The respect for Iran’s rights and achievements of Iranian scholars is a red line not to be crossed.

A Soros «Trojan Horse» inside the New Greek Government?

...Although new Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras... and the vast majority of his new Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA) government have good left-wing and pro-labor credentials, the same cannot be necessarily said of the man Tsipras chose to be Greece’s new finance minister. Yanis Varoufakis is a citizen of Australia who was educated in Britain and worked as a professor at the University of Texas... Varoufakis’s curriculum vitae, reeks of George Soros-intertwined globalist links...
