September 3, 2015—Press Release: 56 Experts Oppose the Iran Deal

Time is running out for preventing Iran from fully developing nuclear weapons—a process that has been underway for many years, contrary to the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) regime—to which Iran is a signatory. In-depth analyses of the technical facts should inform the debate on the pending deal, but has been missing—and yesterday a letter to President Obama and shared with the Capitol Hill leadership should enable needed debate on the merits of the proposed Deal.

September 1, 2015—Countdown to a Very Bad Deal

September 1, 2015—Countdown to a Very Bad Deal

The pending Deal with Iran is little to no help in preventing metastasizing of the Iranian nuclear threat. Indeed it could become a capstone for Iran gaining confidence in the deliverable capability it has pursed for many years, i.e., via a deliberate path toward nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them—to attack the “Little Satan” Israel and the “Great Satan” America.

August 25, 2015 — Middle East Madness?

August 25, 2015 — Middle East Madness?

We are entering a dangerous period during which the Middle East may become embroiled in a nuclear war between Israel and Iran—and consequences from that war could extend well beyond the Middle East, even to America with existential implications. Unless something happens to persuade Congress to block President Obama’s “Deal with Iran,” such dire events could follow shortly. And time is running out.

August 18, 2015—Daunting Dog Days . . .

September 11, 1683 was when Muslim armies were turned back from Vienna. Maybe September 11 has meaning for the jihadi terrorists. A September 11, 2012 jihadi attack on our Benghazi consulate killed the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans—after the Ambassador’s requests for additional security went unanswered. And we are still wondering what happened as the FBI will be investigating the messages on then Secretary of State Hilary Clinton’s email server, as we approach another September 11. Stay tuned!

August 4, 2015 – Moniz, Maddow, Shultz and the “Know Nothing” Club . . .

In a June 29 article on MSNBC’s Maddow Blog, Steve Benen reported on exchanges between Senators and Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz, presumably associated with the technical issues of assuring the verifiability of the Deal with Iran, which alleges to block Iranian nuclear weapons for at least a decade. He ridiculed Senator Ron Johnson’s question of whether Secretary Moniz was familiar with electromagnetic pulse, noting that question had nothing to do with the “Deal” and challenged Senator Ted Cruz’s references to his previous testimony. Benen then proceeded to make numerous false or misleading claims based on a chorus of other also ill-informed or incompetent, poorly researched related commentaries masquerading as press accounts.

July 28, 2015—Iranian Deal Deception!

“I continue to be concerned about Iranian malign activity in the region to include here [in Iraq], and the possibility of Iranian aggression and the possibility that Iran will not obey the agreement, which we’ll find out, because there’s got to be inspections and [verification] and so forth . . . We will keep the military option, which was the alternative to a deal . . . [It] doesn’t solve all problems over in this part of the world, and it doesn’t solve all problems emanating from Iran. …It’s an agreement that places important limitations upon Iran, places no limits on us, and it doesn’t place any limits on anything we do with anybody in this region.” Defense Secretary Ashton Carter to the Troops in Iraq, as reported by Breitbart News on July 24.

July 21, 2015—An Iran Deal Distraction!

July 21, 2015—An Iran Deal Distraction!

The Deal with Iran is a bad, bad deal—and the debate over its future acceptance will no doubt be very political in the coming weeks. Unfortunately, this debate ignores an existing Iranian capability to attack the United States with nuclear weapons they may rapidly obtain, if they don’t have them already. And this means of attack poses an existential threat to all Americans—just what the Iranian mullahs and their followers say they want when they chant “Death to America.” Beware of an EMP attack from a satellite launched southward from Iran (or North Korea). Wake up America!

ISIS Going Global?

June 30, 2015—ISIS Going Global?

Within a three hours period last Friday, jihadis killed about 60 persons and wounded several hundred others in three nation states. Friday’s attacks in France, Tunisia and Kuwait came days after the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist group called for such operations during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan (June 17-July 17). Was this “Bloody Friday” an introduction to more such terrorism during the next several weeks? Within what geographic limits? Within the United States? Something to consider for this Fourth of July?

June 2, 2015—Sunni, Shia and More Tangled Web!

“Having been created by Islamic supremacism, AQI/ISIS was nurtured by Iran. Notwithstanding the internecine bloodletting that now pits Sunnis against Shiites across the region, Shiite Iran has been the key supporter of both Shiite and Sunni jihadist groups since its revolutionary incarnation as “the Islamic Republic” in 1979. It has backed Sunni al-Qaeda and Hamas, as well as Shiite Hezbollah and a network of Shiite terror cells in Iraq. Its only requirement has been that jihadists of whatever stripe advance Iran’s interests by taking the fight to the U.S. and Israel.” ~ Andrew McCarthy in “Rand Paul has a point about Republicans and ISIS,” National Review, May 30, 2015
