While the US has been forced to agree to most of the reasonable demands of Islamic Iran, can the nuclear deal (officially known as the JCPOA) succeed and endure given America’s mindboggling duplicity and dishonesty?
There are many variables in the proxy war between Russia and the US-led NATO in Ukraine. The economic dimension is one of them but it is not all a one-way street. Since Russia’s economy is deeply intertwined with that of Europe, sanctions on Russia are negatively impacting Europe as well.
News from India continues to raise alarm. The Hindutva fascists are determined to turn India into an exclusivist Hindu state. Their primary target is the 200 million Muslims.

The martyr, General Haj Qassem Soleimani was a brilliant strategist, an outstandingly daring general and the bane of terrorists and imperialists.
