    IAEA’s ElBaradei Turns a Blind Eye to Iran’s Nuclear Program

    The Israeli newspaper Haaretz yesterday published a disturbing report alleging that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the U.N.’s “nuclear watchdog”, has willfully suppressed evidence that Iran is continuing efforts to develop a nuclear weapon. Citing anonymous Israeli officials and “senior Western diplomats”, reporter Barak Ravid wrote that controversial IAEA … More

    Get Real About Getting Rid of Nukes

    Although folks like President Obama, U.N. chief Ban Ki-Moon, and IAEA head Mohamed ElBaradei have long dreamed of a nuclear-free world, it’s time to get real and admit that the road to zero they want to take is unlikely to get us there. Proponents of denuclearization may have the best … More

    Obama’s Failed Diplomatic Game

    “Open hand” is the name of President Obama’s diplomatic strategy in Iran. The administration’s current course of action for Iran is “open negotiations” which offer Iran better relations with the United States if Iran will enter arms control talks.

    Can Iran Build a Nuclear Weapon Already? Another Reason to Support Missile Defense

    The Times of London reported yesterday (Aug. 3) that unnamed Western intelligence sources have concluded that Iran has perfected the technology to build and detonate a nuclear weapon.

    On February 2, 2009, Iran successfully launched a satellite into orbit using a rocket with technology similar to that used in a long-range ballistic missile.

    Guest Blogger: Congressman Bill Shuster (R-PA) on Missile Defense

    I am proud my colleagues on the Armed Services Committee succeeded in securing a 3.4 percent pay raise for our troops as well as critical advance funding for twelve new F-22 air superiority fighters in the National Defense Authorization Act. However, I am extremely disappointed that the Democrats failed to … More

    Obama, Medvedev, and Missile Defense

    As President Obama and Russian President Medvedev met in Moscow July 6-8, arms control and missile defense were key issues. Both sides agreed to a preliminary framework for a treaty to replace the START Treaty, which expires in December. However, since before Obama arrived in Moscow, President Medvedev has been … More

    Guest Blogger: Congressman Todd Akin (R-MO) on Shooting Down Missile Defense

    As we celebrated our nation’s birthday, North Korea launched seven missiles, and is now preparing to launch a long-range ballistic missile, just months after testing a nuclear weapon. At the same time, Iran is developing both nuclear capabilities and long range missiles, recently disguised as a “space” launch. Meanwhile in … More

    The "Latest" Final Deadline For Iran?

    Since 2003, when negotiations began over Iran’s nuclear program, there has been no shortage of warnings, reports and punitive sanctions voiced, written or imposed by the international community. (A quick count shows at least three punitive European Union sanctions, four US sanctions, five U.N. resolutions, 20 IAEA reports, and an … More
