  • Questions Remain as Bush Signs US-India Nuclear Deal
    Posted by Laicie Olson and Jill Marie Parillo on October 9, 2008

    After three years of negotiation, President Bush has signed an agreement that would open up nuclear trade with India for the first time since New Delhi conducted a nuclear test three decades ago, reversing 34 years of U.S. policy opposing nuclear cooperation with nations outside the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) regime.

    Posted by Jill Marie Parillo on July 28, 2008

  • Stop Typecasting Iran as a Threat
    Posted by Jill Marie Parillo on June 27, 2008

    Rhetoric and threat propaganda on Iran need to stop if we are to make peace with the nation. There is absolutely nothing new to Iran’s nuclear achievements which would demonstrate that the Iranians have enriched low grade fuel closer to bomb grade levels. The international community cannot stop Iran from having a nuclear energy capability. However, it can drive Iran to becoming a nuclear weapon state by continually typecasting the nation as a threat and increasing the nations insecurity. Read more »

  • Italy Trading Its Way to the Negotiating Table on Iran
    Posted by Jill Marie Parillo and Kevin Reynolds on June 20, 2008

    Italy now seeks a stronger position in negotiations over Iran, but is hitting resistance from key players like the United States and Germany. Regardless of the outcome, due to strong economic ties, Italy will continue to play an important role in resolving the Iran crisis. With the rise of Italy's recently elected Prime Minster, Silvio Berlusconi, a harder stance on Iran has emerged with hope that Italy will win a seat at the P5+1 negotiating table. "Now Italy will push forward to be really in the club on Iran...Italy will not be left isolated by a restricted group of European partners plus the US," stated Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini in May.

  • Engagement Without Preconditions Needed in Wake of Iran Report
    Posted by Kevin Grady Reynolds on June 3, 2008

    With a new international watch dog report out on the nation, tension heightens between Iran and the international community pointing to the immediate need for a new policy of engagement…one without preconditions. In 2003, Iran provoked international outcry with the exposure of a clandestine nuclear program.

  • War on Iran Is Not the Answer
    Posted by Jill Marie Parillo on May 27, 2008

    The United States needs to stop focusing on a policy which includes: sanctions, preconditions and threats of attack. A new US policy must include direct engagement, in order to successfully swap incentives for concessions.

  • Tail-Wagging America
    Posted by Kevin Grady Reynolds on May 20, 2008

    The National Intelligence Estimate (November 2007) proclaimed that Iran stopped a nuclear weapons program in 2003, undermining Bush Administration claims that Iran is an imminent threat to US and international security due to its nuclear program.
