The use of natural gas in vehicles in the world has been increasing, and one country that could benefit big from natural gas-run vehicles is Iran.

These islands are […]

The EU sanctions have been pressuring Iran for quite some time already, from nearly every possible angle. While Iran has not yet developed nuclear bomb, the country did not completely halt its nuclear program either. Islamic Republic’s nuclear program, which as the country says, is only for peaceful purposes, has caused a lot of worries […]

Up until now, Iran has mostly been worried about its oil exports, thanks to numerous sanctions imposed on the country from the U.S., and Europe.

I honestly think that right now Iran is choking on its own nuclear ambitions. Both official and unofficial statistics show that Iran’s economy is being pounded by the sanctions imposed by both EU and the United States.

Baghdad is getting ready to host the next round of “Iran-Six powers” nuclear negotiations on May 23. Both sides are weighting their advantages at the upcoming talks, yet most experts believe that no real breakthrough should be expected from the Baghdad meeting.

Former New York City Mayor Ed Koch has apparently lost his mind. What else to expect from a 87 year old, who claims to “attack Iran, if sanctions fail”? The potential for an armed standoff between a nuclear Iran and Israel is not comparable to the Cold War and the United States should be prepared […]

President Barack Obama says he doesn’t want war but insists he would attack Iran if that was the only option left to stop that nation from getting a nuclear weapon, Fox News reported. “Loose talk of war” only plays into Iran’s hands, Obama said Sunday.

The oil sanctions on Iran have already affected the world economy, and this process continues. One of Iran’s biggest oil importers, Japan is facing a dilemma, at the same time trying to keep balance between the West, and the Islamic Republic.

No, there have been no official statements on whether North Korea will help Iran, in case if the Islamic Republic will engage in a war against Israel, or the United States. This is just my own thoughts.

Iran seems to be standing alone in its battle for keeping rights for developing nuclear energy. Both U.S.A. and Europe actively try to pressure Iran through sanctions, to make it stop.
