This morning I had the chance to speak with Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) fresh off her trip to Israel, where she met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu regarding the nuclear agreement with Iran that the latter has defined as a “very, very bad deal.”
A bill attempting to authorize the use of America's full military force against Iran is being introduced to Congress on Thursday by Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ), who is currently seeking a co-sponsor.
Iran’s pursuit of chemical weapons will be a primary focus of American diplomacy in the coming term, President Barack Obama notified the United Nations General Assembly Tuesday.
IF KIM JONG UN thinks he can shake down Washington by threatening nuclear apocalypse, President Obama says, the belligerent North Korean dictator has another think coming.
The official public position remains unchanged in substance. China's persistence in supporting the Six Party talks' process for terminating North Korea's nuclear programs implies that the Chinese leaders have some expectation that North Korea can be persuaded to give up its nuclear programs.
Either North Korean Leaders genuinely do not want talks at this time, or they have made a statement of regarding their most extreme positions as an opening round and invitation for a reply.
Last year, the White House announced a “pivot” toward Asia, a “rebalancing” of what National Security adviser Tom Donilon called “all elements of U.S. power.”
North Koreans scientists and technicians have had the opportunity and fissile material to work on machining plutonium since at least 1993.

North Koreans celebrated the birthday of their first leader with little hint of the fiery language that has kept the international community fearful that a missile launch may be imminent.
It’s a pity North Korea’s Kim Jong Un had to spoil the party this week. Rockers at the White House should not have had to listen to disturbing news stories about rattling sabers and missile launches
The calm reaction of the Allies to North Korean threats seems to confound the North Korean propagandists. A few excerpts are worth noting.
President Obama on Thursday urged North Korea to end its brazen nuclear threats against the U.S. and its allies, warning the communist regime that his administration would "take all necessary steps" to protect American citizens.
For the first time, a U.S. intelligence agency has said that North Korea has capability of adding nuclear weapon to tip of missile.
The Iranian government opened its largest uranium mine and processing facility in the central part of the country.
Six world powers have sat down at the negotiating table with Iran for talks they hope will make progress in curbing Tehran's nuclear progress.
"If you see 10 troubles coming down the road, you can be sure that nine will run into the ditch before they reach you," said Calvin Coolidge, who ever counseled patience over the rash response.
