Psychological pressure of EU sanctions

November 1, 2012


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.

April 2, 2012


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 […]
