  • NEW YORK, April 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As the United States has removed itself from one extended military conflict in the Middle East -- in Iraq -- another one possibly looms on the horizon, brought on by Iran's suspected nuclear program and, among other things, Israel's desire to abolish it. The U.S. has a tricky and nuanced road to navigate, made only more complicated by Israel's role, the rising price of oil, and the presidential election in November. When Americans were asked about various items related to the potential conflict with Iran, the responses reflect the complicated nature of the issue. Seven in ten Americans agree that Iran's nuclear capabilities pose a threat to the United States (72%), yet what action the United States should take in response is less clear. (Logo: ht...

  • Much of the public debate surrounding US policies regarding Iran has been distorted by myths that obscure the actual status of Iranian nuclear programs. Similarly, discussions about the implications of a nuclear-armed Iran are often built on questionable assumptions requiring more thorough examination. This article dispels these myths, questions these assumptions, and draws important implications for US policymakers in this critical strategic debate.

  • In the 30-year reign of Iran's Islamic Republic, there have been few controversies as serious as the one surrounding the 2009 elections. Blaming Iran's problems on Ahmadinejad would lead us in a dangerous direction by suggesting that those problems will go away when he is finally driven out of office.

  • Iran has balked at requests by the International Atomic Energy Agency, the U.N. nuclear monitor, for unfettered access to military sites by its inspectors. The European Union and the United States have injected a note of caution into the mood of optimism surrounding recently revived talks on Iran's contentious uranium enrichment program.

  • NEW YORK, March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Commodities increased in February as supply and demand fundamentals supported returns. Nelson Louie, Global Head of Commodities in Credit Suisse's Asset Management business, said, "As of the end of the month, the path for Ukraine was unclear. Russia's show of force across the Crimean Peninsula stoked supply-risk worries across oil markets as Russia is the world's third largest oil producer and its second largest exporter. It is possible that any further heightening of tension could affect relations with Russia and, in turn, the oil supply and demand in Europe, as well as the outcome of negotiations surrounding the war in Syria, and sanctions on Iran. Ukraine is also a large wheat exporter and could tighten the wheat supply/demand balance should t...

  • Away from pomp and fanfare surrounding the multiparty talks in Geneva that resulted in this weekend's nuclear deal with Iran, senior Obama administration officials and other sources are now revealing that U.S. and Iran actually, and very secretly, have been engaged in high-level direct talks for more than a year. The discussions were kept hidden even from the four other nations negotiating with Iran in Geneva alongside the U.S. and from key ally Israel, according to The Associated Press, which reported Sunday that Deputy Secretary of State William J. Burns and Jake Sullivan, Vice President Joseph R. Biden's top foreign policy adviser, have met face-to-face at least five times with Iranian officials since March.

  • [Jackson Diehl] begins his comparison to Iraq with the thundering understatement that the situation there "hasn't turned out, so far, as we war supporters hoped." ("So far"? That has to be one of the choicest examples of hope springing eternal). He then addresses his topic from a humanitarian angle, giving us some figures to try to make a case that "the larger humanitarian price of Syria has been far greater" than that of war in Iraq. The next topic in the column is al-Qaeda, with Diehl repeating the flypaper theory of counterterrorism by saying that "in Iraq, the United States faced down al-Qaeda and eventually dealt it a decisive defeat." The fallacy with this theory is that it assumes there is a fixed number of terrorists, with the task simply being one of attracting them to where we...

  • TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - Iran's hard-line president said Tuesday that the country "has joined the club of nuclear countries" by successfully enriching uranium for the first time - a key process in what Iran maintains is a peaceful energy program. The announcement from President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was certain to heighten international tensions surrounding Iran's nuclear program. The U.N. Security Council has demanded that Iran stop all enrichment by April 28 because of suspicions the program is designed to make nuclear weapons.
