Why Are We Still Dithering On Iran?
Iran’s leadership is working feverishly to develop nuclear weapons, and has been doing so for the past two decades. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamanei have repeatedly pledged to use whatever means they have at their disposal to wipe Israel off the map.Nuclear Weapons Challenges in Middle East and Asia
At some point we need to reign in the issues with nuclear weapons proliferation, and I’d say that time was yesterday. If we do not get this done now, history will show we were nothing more than fools. Some say that once the cat is out of the bag there is nothing you can do, but I wonder if that is an accurate assessment.Nuclear Power in the Middle East and Nuclear Weapon Proliferation Challenges Considered
Iran does not need to enrich uranium to weapons grade to have its own in-house nuclear power program, that’s just non-sense. Look, other nations in the Arab League, even in Egypt have nuclear power plant programs slated or in progress, and they are not pursuing nuclear weapons development. Further if Iran does get a nuclear bomb, you can bet the rest of the region will fill it necessary to do the same, and that’s a real dilemma.Summer of 2011 – What Did We Really Learn?
Well, the Arab Spring throughout the Middle East and North Africa was quite the to-do. Many people lost their lives protesting against their governments, and some of the rogue regimes which occupy the various nations in those regions. However, the Arab Spring which was meant to bring democracy and overthrow iron-fisted ruled governments quickly turned into the Arab Summer, Arab Fall, and now the Arab Winter.Is the EuroZone Experiment Over – Did It Fail Due to Socialism?
Europe’s debt crisis is real, and it’s much bigger than the leadership there would like to admit in public, but really there is no denying the reality of what is going on. And it’s not just with the PIIGS – Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece, and Spain either. You can easily add France to the mix, even though its economy appears to be functioning and viable with some austerity measures to limit the financial challenges that socialism has brought forth in that country.If Sanctions Aren’t Working With The Iran Nuclear Weapons Program – Why More of the Same?
Okay so, I hope you can remind me what the definition of insanity is; “doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results.” And with that said, doesn’t it seem insane to levy more sanctions on Iran to get them to stop their nuclear weapons program? Obviously they have no intention of doing so, and they’ve been sticking their middle finger at the international community for a good many years now on this whole issue.Syria Is Seriously Not Serving Their Citizens
What the heck is going on in Syria, how can something labeled the Arab Spring become a perennial protest and chaos driven civil war? The number of people who have been killed in Syria is a scary proposition. And unfortunately the bloodshed isn’t over despite the promises of the Assad government in Syria.Who Says Iran’s Nuclear Program Is Only Peaceful?
“Peaceful my rear end,” was the comment I heard from the retiring general in the US military as he gave a speech and answered questions about the Iranian nuclear weapons program. Very few political analysts, geopolitical gurus, military men, State Department employees, or foreign nations are fooled by the Iranian regimes trickery, tactics, or half-truths during negotiation on this issue. Okay, so let’s talk about this for a moment shall we?Don’t Count Your Egyptian Chickens Before They Hatch!
It was amazing how many people tried to put a positive spin on the chaos in Egypt during the Arab Spring. What many people don’t realize is that not only was Egypt’s government taken out of power, but their entire economy was trashed. They were actually starting to develop a middle class, and provide jobs, as too many of the people who were quite poor that nation and they still are.Child Begging: A Blight on Society
For child beggars, there is nothing like school. From day to day, week to week, months running into years, the routine is the same: begging along highways despite the inherent risks and hazards. Begging has become a widespread profession in many developing countries.
